Cold Case Squad

Genre: Fiction; Author: Edna Buchanan; Status: In Season; Publisher: Simon & Schuster

Buchanan’s vibrant longtime hero Britt Montero is AWOL in this new series starring the comparatively flat Miami police sergeant Craig Burch – a cop so consumed by his work that he misses the birth of his third child (”caught a triple homicide that night and was tied up until the next morning”). But the mysteries, as always, thrill: A woman is convinced her ex-husband did not get blown up 12 years ago while tinkering with his car. A serial killer targets elderly women. Buchanan needs to work on Burch, but not on her forensic details, which dazzle.
