First edition. Remainder mark on page base, a few light spots on cover spine. 2007 Hard Cover. 316 pp. For the last nine years, the city of Ciudad Juarez in northern Mexico has been the centre of an ongoing phenomenon of female homicides. As of February 2005 more than 370 bodies have been recovered, with over 400 women still missing, according to Amnesty International. The BBC News reported in November 2005 that 28 women had been murdered so far in 2005. As for who is behind the murders, the answer remains unknown. Despite numerous arrests over the last few years, the killings continue, leading the Mexican police and the general public to consider many theories, among them that the original killer or killers are in jail and copycats have moved to the area since. Furthermore, there has been speculation that there has been a conspiracy of silence and cover-up by Mexican politicians. As this story begins to land on the front pages of national papers such as The New York Times, this book will become a staple of required reading on the case for years to come.
