    Cosecha de mujeres: safari en el desierto mexicano

    I've seen just about everything available on this subject due to college research, and this is the best there is. It's courageous, shocking, and informative. Many of my non-Spanish readers need to see it in English.

    Cosecha de mujeres: safari en el desierto mexicano

    Excellent expose. Read it Mexico while on vacation. The U.S. government needs to get involved! This is a form of genocide that is being allowed to continue right in our own back yard.

    thank you Diana Washington for telling the truth behind 12 years of murders

    Great book, it helps us understand why authorities have not taken any action against the powerful businessmen and the Juarez drug cartel, who are behind the murders
