You Only Die Twice: A Novel (Britt Montero series Book 7). Edna Buchanan. I thoroughly enjoyed Garden of Evil, the first Edna Buchanan crime novel that I have read. The protagonist, Britt Montero, a reporter for a Miami newspaper who covers the police beat, obviously owes a great deal to Buchanan's own experience as an award winning crime reporter. The story is fast, the characters are interesting and the dialogue is crisp. This is the kind of entertaining read that many readers long for.

Edna Buchanan's Britt Montero mysteries are a guilty pleasure. Buchanan gets the details of a newsroom and South Florida right, and her characters are dependably entertaining. The stories - I've read three or four books in the series - don't differentiate themselves much, however. Best served with Cuban food.

You Only Die Twice: A Novel. You Only Die Twice - Edna Buchanan. Summary ten years ago! . My name is Britt Montero, and I cover the police beat in this city where everything is exaggerated, where colors are too vivid to be real, where ugly is uglier, beautiful is breathtaking, and passions run high. Every day on this job, I see new faces.

The Los Angeles Daily News has dubbed Pulitzer Prize winner Edna Buchanan "the Queen of Crime." The number one New York Times bestselling author Patricia Cornwell calls her "outrageous and unrivaled." Nearly every reader and reviewer who has gotten a good taste of her exceptional Florida noir agrees: No one captures the steamy, vibrant, and lethal intensity of Miami better than the unsurpassed Edna. And no fictional investigator has more life, depth, character, and savvy than her peerless creation, crime reporter Britt Montero.

The perfect, nude corpse of a beautiful woman washes up on a pristine Miami Beach -- her body tanned and shapely, her nails elegantly manicured. The problem is that the victim, Kaithlin Jordan, was murdered ten years ago. And her convicted killer -- her husband, R. J. Jordan, scion of a wealthy and powerful South Florida family -- sits on death row, just weeks away from his execution.

Newspaper reporter Britt Montero recalls the high-profile murder trial that heated up a volatile tropical city like the merciless August sun. Even without a body, the prosecution's case against Jordan seemed airtight and the jury enthusiastically bought into it. Now R.J. is preparing to walk -- benefiting from the murderous "largess" of whoever drowned his wife in the ocean off Miami Beach -- and Britt's boundlessly curious nature is energized once more by a slew of questions that suddenly need answers. Did Kaithlin frame her husband for murder -- or did she simply efficiently flee an abusive marriage? And why, after successfully reinventing herself, had she returned to South Florida, only to meet a very bad end in deep turquoise water?

Impulsive and explosive, with a turbulent love life and a unique, highly charged relationship with this singular metropolis erected between swamp and sea, Britt is only truly happy when she's involved in a juicy murder story. And this one has the right smell and feel...and threat. Because somewhere in the tangle of an enigmatic beauty's bizarre life and even stranger rebirth -- somewhere between the sparkling gold coast glamour and flashing neon sleaze -- are secret passions and buried solutions that could doom an overly inquisitive journalist with a tendency to leap before she looks. After all, this is Miami, where anything is possible...even dying twice.

Edna Buchanan's You Only Die Twice continues to be just as entertaining as her previous Britt Montero books. She sustains her colorful characters, while introducing delightful new characters in each book. I look forward to her next one.

For the Britt Montero fans, this is a thriller. Wish Buchanan would go back to this genre since the character is very appealing.

In the pantheon of crime solvers, Britt Montero is one of the best. As a crime beat reporter for the Miami News, she’s one of the first on the scene when a beautiful nude woman is discovered on a beach near the city. After several days of fascinating maneuvering, lovingly detailed by author Edna Buchanan, the identity of the body is determined to be that of Kathlin Jordan. The only trouble is, she’s dead these past ten years and her husband, convicted of the murder, has just exhausted his last appeal.

So now, Montero, a fully realized character, takes an often puzzling, sometimes frightening, ride through south Florida’s high and low society in an attempt to find out what really happened. Is JR, son of a powerful, wealthy family actually not guilty? In spite of his poisonous personality, was his mother right to defend him almost to the death? And where was Kathlin all these years while JR’s case wound it’s way through the court system. Even more importantly, why has she now literally surfaced at the last minute? This question is especially important because the finding of her body was very much happenstance.. Lying there nude, in the shallow ocean water, had the weather been only a little different, she might have gone out to sea never to be discovered.

This novel is carefully and precisely written, with never a misstep. Miami and the many interesting characters really come alive and we are with Britt Montero every step of the way. The language is always consistent with the characters, the times and the situations.

None write these stories any better and few do it as well.

REVIEW OF THE AUDIOBOOK:

Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist Buchanan has retained an impeccably high standard since turning to fiction with 1990's Nobody Lives Forever, and her eighth mystery featuring Miami News crime reporter Britt Montero is one of the best. Narrated with assurance by Sandra Burr, the audio production benefits from this mystery's unusually streamlined style.

Typically, Britt's adventures feature abundant, fascinating mini-mysteries popping up on the job, diverting her attention from the main case. This time, the mystery is more tightly focused. Some may miss the extra color, but no one will find anything lacking in this riveting, complex and clever thriller.

Britt's immediate task is to identify the nude, recently dead body of a beautiful woman that has washed ashore. Once I.D.'d, the mystery grows: she was believed to have been murdered 10 years earlier and her husband has spent a decade on Death Row for the crime. Where was she all those years, and who found and killed her for real this second time? Rich comic relief is provided by the upcoming wedding of Britt's ever-pregnant friend Angel (picture bridesmaid Britt in a salmon-colored dress with a bustle), while emotional hurts surface with the cracking of the normally calm façade of Britt's mother, who holds a key to the mystery. A white-knuckle climax tops this outstanding effort.
I definately enjoyed this novel by Edna Buchanan and can't wait to read another.

The beginning of the novel opens with the discovery of an unidentified woman on the beach. As the story evolves, the woman is identified as Kaithlin Jordan, who was murdered supposedly by her husband 10 years ago. Surprisingly, Kaithlin's death will exonerate her husband RJ, who was now on Death Row for her murder. What ace reporter Britt Montero would like to find out is "Why" has Kaithlin returned years later...was it to save RJ (whose execution was only weeks away) or for some other reason? Regardless, Britt is on the trail and coming closer to the truth than investigators. Overall the story is fast paced and very entertaining. We follow the tale as we learn more about "where" Kaithlin has been for the past few years,"why" she left and "who & why" someone killed her. I don't think that you will be surprised who the killer, but it is interesting to see how Buchanan develops the plot and characters to the point that you do second guess yourself.

The only two criticisms that I have about the story are simple: (1)I think that the "romance" elements in the story were weak, and (2) the one secret left intact should have been revealed. Issue #1..the romance...in the beginning of the story Britt appears to be in a relationship with a police officer, but by the end, she is in a semi-relationship with Fitzgerald, or is she. Because Buchanan does not give a lot of information about either of them, you simply don't care. And I guess that because it is not a romance novel but a suspense novel, she did not see a need to build or expound on it. My argument then would be to "leave it out". Issue #2...the secret..since the whole death and subsequent investigation was related to the secret..why not tell the person involved. I thought that that was a little "cheap" and seemed to chip at the integrity of the whole story, but I lived with it. Overall, with those criticisms aside, I still felt comfortable with giving it a 5 and plan to read another Buchanan novel soon.
