City of Omens by Dan Werb

I purchased this book from @bookofthemonth to read. All opinions are my own. 🌟🌟🌟🌟 City of Omens by Dan Werb. This fact filled book begins with epidemiologist Dan Werb studying drug addiction and the spread of HIV in Tijuana but he quickly learns with the right questions asked he can find answers to a larger puzzle. Missing women, a lot of missing women. Drug overdoses, HIV transmission, environmental toxins killing women at an increasing rate. He is trained to track facts and sort data that leads to the deaths of the most vulnerable inhabitants from multiple cultures and walks of life. This research casts a new light on border policy, addiction, and human trafficking. This book does read like a documentary though and that’s where the story slows. However, it must be written that way to include all the data and facts and stories that lie within its pages. Review also posted on Instagram @borenbooks, Library Thing, Amazon, Twitter @jason_stacie, Goodreads/StacieBoren and my blog at
