From the PublisherThe New York Times Book Review Bowden calls himself a reporter, and in a pure sense of the word he really is one. He is also an authentic talent.
Chicago Tribune An extraordinary book — daring, genre-bending, literary, and wise...an intimate and excruciating portrait of the way murder-borne grief can tear a family to ribbons. It is also as fresh and damning an indictment of the drug war as you're likely to read.
Entertainment Weekly Full of sick ironies, stranger-than-fiction anecdotes, and beautifully bare-knuckle prose, Down by the River is a tragic account of corruption and collusion writ large.
The New Yorker Brutal and brilliantly reported...remarkably vivid...captures the way greed, ethnicity, and an old-school emphasis on honor interact to create a world in which violence is the only constant.
