Annotation "In 2005, after publishing her book The Demons of Eden - where she denounced the very powerful men behind the a Mexican child pornography ring - Lydia Cacho became a target. Exactly eight months after the publication of the book, one morning as she was making her way to work, Lydia was apprehended by the police from the neighboring state of Puebla, and taken into custody during a nightmarish 24 hours during which she was tortured, intimidated and abused. In this chilling memoir, comparable to Ayaan Hirsi Ali's Infidel, Lydia tells her story and exposes the horrific ways in which women - and young girls in particular - are abused then disposed of, while an oftentimes corrupt government simply sits and watches." -- Goodreads.Violence, explicit descriptions of sex, and some strong language. Spanish language. 2007.
"Lydia Cacho cuenta por primera vez su vida y narra, de manera descarnada, la conspiración de Kamel Nacif y Mario Marín, quienes se unieron para acorralar a una ciudadana cuyo único delito fue denunciar la pederastia. En esta historia íntima, personal y pública, se describe la venganza de los demonios del edén: el secuestro, la tortura, las amenazas y los abusos policiales. Ésta es la memoria desgarrada del caso que ha cimbrado a México, desnudando la corrupción, las complicidades, la protección y las alianzas tejidas entre el poder político y el poder económico. Memorias de una infamia es el recuento de una vida entregada con pasión y fortaleza a los otros. Una historia que se conoce a medias y debe conocerse entera, porque sólo ha trascendido una pequeña porción de los oprobios que el poder ha desencadenado en contra de las víctimas y de quienes las han defendido." -- Goodreads.Contiene algo de lenguaje ofensivo, descripciones de violencia y descripciones explícitas de índole sexual.
