"[A] detailed coverage of the government's horrifying and often clumsy attempt at a cover-up ... her sources are clear and convincing."
--Rachel Nolan, London Review of Books

"A Massacre in Mexico is a harrowing inquisition in to the fate of forty-three missing Mexican students and the governmental cover-up ... This is sure to be a controversial, significant work, one that might anger more than a few powerful people in Mexico. Anabel Hernandez valiantly risks her safety to uncover a crime that the world shouldn't forget."
--Mya Alexice

"Her storytelling becomes a way of revealing an entire world."
--Roberto Saviano

"It is the most comprehensive account of what is known about the attack--and about the astonishingly corrupt government investigation that followed... A Massacre in Mexico presents an overwhelming case that federal government investigators working for the administration of Mexican president Enrique Peña Nieto created a false narrative of local culpability and sought to close the case before an investigation could reveal the involvement of federal officials."
--Christy Thornton, Jacobin

"A harrowing inquisition into the fate of forty-three missing Mexican students and the governmental cover-up ... Hernandez delves deep into the corruption and violence despite threats against her life."
--Foreword Reviews

"Brilliant ... a masterful piece of journalism which counteracts the narrative of the state."
--Matt Williams, Medium

"A powerful investigation for fans of true crime and nonfiction about the international drug trade."
--Frances O. Sandiford, Library Journal
