The book summarizes information found daily on the Mexican newspapers for the last two-three years developing an image of Juarez to people oblivious to the issue with lots of descriptive reading trying to create an image of what the author sees and feels. In my opinion the author is part of the same "society" he mentions in the book where silence is the norm, where ghosts live in the City. I admire the effort and courage of the author. It is obvious he knows who the players are and the real reasons for the murders of Juarez. He should probably write an investigative book. He may not do it because he knows very well, as he describes in the book, that stating the facts gets you killed, persecuted and terrorized no matter where you are.
Being a Juarez local (not living in Juarez anymore) I think the readers deserve a better explanation of the current affairs focusing more on the "economics" behind the murders as the title of the book implies. At least to me, the book title implied the global economy as a factor for the killings.
The book is a "must read" for all the people who supports the legalization of drugs. It may shed some light to what the future would be if drugs were available and legal in our beloved America.
