Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Just over the border from El Paso, Texas, stands Ciudad Juárez, Mexico—a once thriving city now known for its alarming murder rate and rapid descent into anarchy. With all the power of the best dramatic fiction, award-winning journalist Charles Bowden delivers a stunning and timely report on the culture of violence and the social disintegration plaguing the city. Following the lives of a paid assassin, a fly-by-night journalist, and a victim of sexual warfare, La ciudad del crimen offers a disturbingly truthful account of a nation in deep and certain danger.
