Review

A heartfelt book (Guardian)

A tense, gripping read and a plea for justice (Sunday Times)

His debut novel is a hard-boiled plunge into damaged lives that grippingly evokes the dust, decay and pervading sense of death in Juárez, leaving you with a lingering sense of sweaty unease (Metro)

A powerful and shocking novel (Dreda Say Mitchell)

Hawken writes with a maturity that is rare for a first novel, and achieves both a great crime novel and a work that transcends the genre. This is the real deal: tragic, dark, heartfelt. The Dead Women of Juárez deserves to be massive. (Dave Zeltzerman)

The most stunning piece of work I've read in a long time. Based on the horrific true murders of those women, it is an instant classic. (Ken Bruen)

A beautifully written and deeply affecting crime novel dealing with the wasted life of an American boxer in the city of Juárez, Mexico, the missing women of that city and ultimately a small amount of justice that is awarded them. Hawken writes with a maturity that is rare for a first novel, and achieves both a great crime novel and a work that transcends the genre. This is the real deal: tragic, dark, heartfelt. The Dead Women of Juárez deserves to be massive. (Dave Zeltserman)

Sam Hawken's novel, The Dead Women of Juarez is the most stunning piece of work I've read in a long time. Based on the horrific true murders of those women, it is an instant classic.

The main character, Kelly, is one of the utterly compelling characters I've ever read. A beautiful compassionate gruelling novel, as ferocious to read as it is soul wrenching. Think The Wrestler meets Under the Volcano with the awful truth of the main events being true.

The depiction of the underbelly of Mexico is Dante's vision of hell, fuelled on drugs. A wondrous love affair between the washed up ex-boxer and the Mexican lady Paloma is epic and beautiful in its terrible foreboding.

This book will haunt you for a long long time and the dignity given to the mothers of the lost women is writing of a whole other dimension.

(Ken Bruen)

the book roars into gear as a bluntly forceful hard-boiled thriller that also manages to address, movingly and respectfully, its troubling subject matter (Publishers Weekly 2012-06-11)

Book Description

A visceral crime novel based on the true story of mass murder in a Mexican border town

Shortlisted for the Crime Writers' Association New Blood Dagger Award.
