it was amazing

In spite of slow going sometimes, this is a wonderful book. The five parts of the book revolve around the murders of young women in Santa Teresa, Mexico (the fictional name for Ciudad Juárez). Part four is a listing of the dead with narratives about the police interspersed through out. The story lines go from Mexico to the German/Russian front during WWII. Often I was awed by the stories he told. Sad Bolano died so young.
