With an introduction by award-winning novelist Colm Toibin In 1960s Central Mexico, two sisters, Delfina and Maria de Jesus Gonzalez, known as 'Las Poquianchis', run a small-town brothel. Kidnapped, drugged and beaten, their young workers are desperate for escape. The Dead Girls is the discovery of these young women, buried in the back yard. In the laconic tones of a police report, Jorge Ibarguengoitia investigates these horrific murders and their motives. A black comedy, both moving and cruelly funny, Ibarguengoitia's work is a potent and entertaining blend of sex and mayhem.
