Summary
"The Girl with the Crooked Nose is the true story of renowned forensics expert Frank Bender. Although he is entirely self-trained and makes his living as an artist, Frank has an impeccable record when it comes to putting faces on the faceless. He's the best in the world at reconstructing the faces of the dead so they can be identified and their killers caught - or imagining the aged faces of long-forgotten fugitives from justice. Obsessed, eccentric, and brilliant, Frank has over the years been the key to solving nine murders and tracking down almost thirty fugitives. This fascinating account braids together the story of Frank's life as a forensic expert - the cases he's solved, the intricacies of his art, the colourful characters around him - with a fascinating true-crime narrative: the story of the horrific murder of hundreds of women in the gritty Mexican town of Juarez, where Frank has been summoned to lend his expertise. Frank becomes obsessed with solving the case of these serial murders, and with one victim in particular, whose face will always haunt him: The Girl with the Crooked Nose. This is an entirely original and compulsively readable look at the strangely compelling world of crime and forensics, and the harrowing story of an investigation where all clues point to a solution as disturbing as the crime itself"--Provided by publisher
