“Roger Kahn wrote ‘Boxing is smoky halls and kidneys battered until they bleed’, but in Mexico everything bled in the ring…”

Sam Hawken’s debut novel, set in a Mexican border town, revolves around the disappearances of over 400 women, believed to be linked to the criminal underworld. Kelly Courtier, a Texan boxer, teams up with detective Rafael Sevilla, to solve the puzzle and reveal the shocking truth about the killings.
