Its throng of unforgettable characters includes academics and convicts, an American sportswriter, an elusive German novelist, and a teenage student and her widowed, mentally unstable father. Their lives intersect in the urban sprawl of Santa Teresa - a fictional Juarez - on the U.S.-Mexico border, where hundreds of young factory workers, in the novel as in life, have disappeared.
