Vice

(1992)
Life and Death on the Streets of Miami
A non fiction book by

 
No other police reporter in America can rival Edna Buchanan, whose reputation for being first on the scene and first with the story is legendary.In VICE she captures the lurid, bizarre, violent even hilarious happenings that make Miami America's hottest crime beat, stories that are by turns heart warming, tragic and stomach-churning; the two-and-a-half year old boy framed for murder by his mother; the ninety year old bridegroom who battered his seventy-six year old bride to death with a hammer on their honeymoon; the runaways, arsonists and the drugs; the five-year old murderer, exposed by his six-year old cousin.And the there are the heroes:the policemen and women;the firefighters; and families like the Southerlands, who watched as a father and three sons were one by one all struck down by the world's deadliest killer. Told in her inimitable, stree-smart style - 'police reporters are generally as welcome among strangers as Freddy Krueger is in the girls' dorm' - Buchanan's saga of everyday life in Miami is like an explosive crime novel. Except that it's all true.
