500 girls and women disappear and are later killed in Juarez, Mexico, and no one does anything about it. This book, with its explosive conclusions, reveals the high-level protection that allowed the killers to continue living their lives for over a dozen years. The “femicides,” as the murders are called, have spread to other parts of Mexico. This is the real story behind the Hollywood movie.

Great book gives light to an issue that many chose to ignore. Overstock was the only company that carries this book so I was lucky to find it here! Leer comentario completo

Acerca del autor (2005)

Diana Washington Valdez is a reporter for the El Paso Times of El Paso, Texas, and has dedicated herself to investigating the murders in Ciudad Juarez. Because of her extensive covering of these killings, she wrote Cosecha de mujers, (Harvest of Women), where she explains why the Mexican authorities have not been able to arrest the guilty parties, and why the explanations of serial killers, trafficking in human organs, “snuff” videos, satanic rituals, or street gangs do not stand up. Her theory regarding the web of corruption and impunity that is prevalent among the authorities, the protection they receive, and the coercion that prominent families of Ciudad Juarez exert, including those linked to narcotics, are part of a real and chilling story, and because of her investigations, she has been threatened.
