The Ice Maiden by Edna Buchanan
In The Ice Maiden, Miami crime reporter Britt Montero accompanies a "cold case" squad of police detectives as they try to solve a 14-year old case where a teenage boy was murdered and his girlfriend was raped and shot but survived. The girl, now a woman, is a recluse who makes ice sculptures for weddings, earning herself the moniker "The Ice Maiden." Weaving together different plot lines, romance and betrayal, and the search for truth versus letting sleeping dogs lie, Edna Buchanan's novel has received mixed reviews. The publisher, Harper Collins, says, "Edna Buchanan, a born storyteller, combines her trademark wit, grit, and tension in The Ice Maiden, a narrative alive with Miami's blistering heat and high-octane atmosphere."
