Some brief overview of this book

MORE THAN THIRTY MURDERS, NINE FUGITIVES, AND ONE OBSESSED MAN In this thrilling and fascinating account of Frank Bender and his work, readers will be drawn into the cases he has solved, the intricacies of his art, the colorful characters he encounters, and the personal cost of his strange obsession. Through breathtakingly realistic sculptures, Frank Bender reconstructs the faces of the missing and the dead based in part on forensic science, and in part on deep intuition, an uncanny ability to discern not only a missing face but also the personality behind it. His skills have led to the solving of many murders and other serious crimes, and have given faces to the victims, including the infamous case of the feminicidios—in which hundreds of murdered women were found outside Juarez, Mexico. With a conclusion as shocking as its story is gripping, The Girl with the Crooked Nose will haunt readers long after the last page is turned.“A compelling glimpse into a gruesome profession.”—Simon Winchester, author of The Professor and the Madman
