They have never been found. At time, it made the headlines even outside of Mexico. Today, ever so often an international news report will mention the status of investigation.
Anabel Hernández’s book details not only the night of attacks when the 43 students disappeared but also the cover-ups that followed. On one hand, the writing is dry. Hernandez is reporting. She is trying to prove the cove ups.
