Murder City: Ciudad Juarez and the Global Economy's New Killing Fields
Ciudad Juárez lies just across the Rio Grande from El Paso, Texas. A once-thriving border town, it now resembles a failed state. Infamously known as the place where women disappear, its murder rate exceeds that of Baghdad. Last year 1,607 people were killed?a number that is on pace to increase in 2009.In Murder City, Charles Bowden?one of the few journalists who has spent extended periods of time in Juárez?has written an extraordinary account of what happens when a city disintegrates. Interweaving stories of its inhabitants?a raped beauty queen, a repentant hitman, a journalist fleeing for his life?with a broader meditation on the town’s descent into anarchy, Bowden reveals how Juárez’s culture of violence will not only worsen, but inevitably spread north.Heartbreaking, disturbing, and unforgettable, Murder City establishes Bowden as one of our leading writers working at the height of his powers.
