In 2005, after publishing her book The Demons of Eden-where she denounced the very powerful men behind the a Mexican child pornography ring-Lydia Cacho became a target. Exactly eight months after the publication of the book, one morning as she was making her way to work, Lydia was apprehended by the police from the neighboring state of Puebla, and taken into custody during a nightmarish 24 hours during which she was tortured, intimidated and abused. In this chilling memoir, comparable to Ayaan Hirsi Ali's Infidel, Lydia tells her story and exposes the horrific ways in which women-and young girls in particular-are abused then disposed of, while an oftentimes corrupt government simply sits and watches.
