Summary
"There Are No Dead Here is the harrowing story of three ordinary Colombians who risked everything to reveal the collusion between the new mafia and much of the country's military and political establishment: Jesus Maria Valle, a human rights activist who was murdered for exposing a dark secret; Ivan Velasquez, a quiet prosecutor who took up Valle's cause and became an unlikely hero; and Ricardo Calderon, a dogged journalist who is still being targeted for his revelations. Their groundbreaking investigations landed a third of the country's Congress in prison and fed new demands for justice and peace that Colombia's leaders could not ignore"--
Summary
Three ordinary Colombians risk everything to uncover the truth about the control that paramilitary groups have over their government, resulting from over 20 years of civil war and close ties to drug cartels
