From the red-light districts in Ciudad Juarez 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 Juarez traces the lives of three young women Evita, a street child; Petra, a maquiladora worker; and Mayela, a Tarahumara Indian girl?who together uncover Juarez's 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 Juarez to life. Based on the author's interviews with relatives of murdered women, If I Die in Juarez 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 Juarez, 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 desert's silent sentence of death.
