There Are No Dead Here

There Are No Dead Here

A Story of Murder and Denial in Colombia

In the 1990s and 2000s, in the midst of the decades-long civil war, and with the complicity of much of the country’s military and political establishment, Colombian paramilitary groups with close ties to drug cartels massacred, raped, and tortured thousands.In There Are No Dead Here, three ordinary Colombians-a prosecutor, an activist, and a journalist-risk everything to uncover the truth about the paramilitaries’ hold on the government. Maria McFarland Sánchez-Moreno’s gripping narrative takes readers from the sweltering Medellín streets where criminal investigators were hunted by assassins, through the countryside where paramilitaries wiped out entire towns, and into the corridors of the presidential palace in Bogotá.The result is an unforgettable portrait of the valiant men and women whose tireless work offers hope amid the cascade of corruption and brutality.
