Description: From the red-light districts in Ciudad Jurez to remote villages hidden away in the mountains of Chihuahua comes a tale of one of the darkest crimes to be recorded in the history of humankind. If I Die in Jurez traces the lives of three young womenEvita, a street child; Petra, a maquiladora worker; and Mayela, a Tarahumara Indian girlwho together uncover Jurezs forbidden secret: the abduction and murder of young women. Bound together by blood, honor, an ancient chant, and a mysterious photo, the girls bring the murderous streets of Jurez to life. Based on the authors interviews with relatives of murdered women, If I Die in Jurez is brilliantly crafted to give readers the experience of walking in the shoes of women who daily risk being abducted and murdered in the capital city of murdered women, joining thousands of others who for more than a decade have disappeared from Jurez, las desaparecidas, brutally murdered by assassins who have gone unpunished. The agony of one of the darkest tales in human history brings to light a strange hope, illusive yet constant, resisting lies, betrayal, and the deserts silent sentence of death.
