Murder City (eBook)
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.
