In the last six years, more than 100,000 people have disappeared or been killed in Mexico's struggle with organized crime, where drug trafficking is a multi-billion dollar business. With over 70 journalists killed since 2006, Mexico is one of the most dangerous places in the world to be a reporter. Despite the risks, book author and journalist, Alfredo Corchado, has bravely continued reporting on government corruption, murders in Juarez, and organized crime in the country of his birth.
