Praise For The Daughters of Juarez: A True Story of Serial Murder South of the Border…
"The Daughters of Juárez not only investigates, with facts and information, but illuminates how innocence and purity are sacrificed almost daily on this desert altar. Teresa Rodriguez's book can make a difference only if you and I get involved to assure that this will never happen again to anyone."
-- Carlos Santana
"This story is more horrifying than a Stephen King novel, has more twists and turns than an Agatha Christie plot, and has a higher body count than any James Bond flick -- and it is all true. You will never forget The Daughters of Juárez, which is exactly what the authors intend and accomplish brilliantly. This book must be a beacon, a catalyst for justice, that rare commodity so nonexistent in Juárez. The authors bring to life the human faces, shattered families, and lost dreams of those who must not be forgotten."
-- Edna Buchanan, Pulitzer Prize winner and author of Love Kills
"The Daughters of Juárez is a book you cannot put down and will never forget -- it will shock you and it should. The authors have done a remarkable job piecing this horrific puzzle into one lucid account of the atrocities that have befallen Juárez, Mexico. This is truly an extraordinary book."
-- Isabel Allende
"Here's the deal: you are murdered and your death is not counted, you are murdered and your death is not investigated, you are murdered and someone is framed for your death. This is Juárez, the jewel of our free trade theories. This is a book everyone should read. And then wonder about the United States and Mexico and this hell of dead women they paper over with lies."
-- Charles Bowden, award-winning author of Down by the River
"The Daughters of Juárez is a crucial, chilling, and detailed account of the mutilations and murders of hundreds of women and girls in Juárez, Mexico. It is a cry for an end to these atrocities and it is a righteous call, after all these years of horror, for justice now."
-- Eve Ensler, Obie Award-winning playwright and founder of V-Day, a global movement to stop violence against women
