The Britt Montero series continues with this thrilling installment from Pulitzer Prize-winner Edna Buchanan.

When Miami crime reporter Britt Montero reports a missing teenager, she discovers that the case may be related to a string of ­­­­unsolved disappearances. As Britt delves into the baffling case, an old mystery opens new wounds: she unexpectedly meets two men who knew her deceased father. Through them, Britt learns that he left a diary identifying the man who betrayed him. But the diary isn’t easily possessed; anyone who finds it seems to be marked for murder. At the height of a terrifying category five hurricane, Britt needs to face the man who betrayed her father in order to uncover more than one truth, but will her hunger for justice turn her into the next victim?

When Less Plot Is Actually More

AFTER WRITING SEVEN NOVELS AND three works of nonfiction, acclaimed British author Rachel Cusk began to find fiction “fake and embarrassing.” Two years ago, she explained to a British newspaper, “Once you have suffered sufficiently, the idea of making up John and Jane and having them do things together seems utterly ridiculous.” No surprise, then, that her 2014 novel Outline was anything but plot-driven. It was more like a series of observations by a narrator as she traveled to Greece to teach writing. The people she met along the way essentially became the subjects of miniature profiles craf

Nayib Bukele

Ioan Grillo In a barrio of San Salvador, Mayor Nayib Bukele stands on a renovated soccer pitch defending penalty kicks from a line of kids. Most are approaching the age when many local youths join feared street gangs, known here as maras.

In 2015, the year Bukele came to power, El Salvador’s capital city suffered 514 homicides in an area with about 260,000 people, making it 11 times more lethal per he
