Victoria Villarreal becomes the voice of a loving, tormented family member, Cristina Rivera Garza, who is seeking information on what happened in the murder of her sister, Liliana. Villarreal uses a soft yet determined voice to characterize Cristina, a Mexican American, on her journey to find justice for her sister. The emotional listening experience provided by this memoir also gives context to the global rise in violence against women in general, and in Mexico specifically. Villarreal balances the personal aspects of this project and the wider context of the many issues the author provides. Filled with grief management mixed with true-crime elements, this audiobook is not for the faint of heart. But all who listen are also bearing witness to the challenges of those seeking justice. M.R.
