About the Author

The author of twenty-six books, CHARLES BOWDEN has also been a contributing editor for GQ, Harper’s, Esquire, and Mother Jones. His best-known work focuses on the U.S.-Mexico border, which engrosses him because it is a trip wire for issues—migration spawned by global inequality, the rise of stateless criminal cartels—that will shape the twenty-first century.

Reviews

PRAISE FOR A SHADOW IN THE CITY

"A Shadow in the City is a condemnation of the drug war, with a top officer saying the point of the war eludes him. But it's also a fascinating personal story about a man whose search for meaning in his life makes him reject his life's work."--The Washington Post Book World

"No writer casts a colder and more perceptive eye on our culture than Chuck Bowden. This is a look at drug enforcement that leaves you wishing it was a novel so it wouldn't be true. The hero, Joey O'Shay, is an artist in his own genre and has to be one of the hardest men in our history."--Jim Harrison, author of Legends of the Fall
