Descripción del producto

Descripción del producto

From The Classic True Crime Library of Steve Jackson, New York Times Bestselling Author of NO STONE UNTURNED, BOGEYMAN, and SMOOTH TALKER

Early one morning in May 1997, a young couple on their way to work in the mountains of Colorado spotted a man dragging a body up a secluded trail. The beautiful, densely wooded area off a dirt road seemed such an incongruous place for a violent crime that at first the couple had a hard time believing what they were seeing. It was all too real; the man fled, leaving behind a bloody, dying woman.

Indeed the investigation into the death of young street walker Anita Paley would lead from that idyllic spot to the seamy underbelly of Denver and a world of prostitution, drug dealers and violent criminals. And it would expose the lives of two of that world’s inhabitants, the suspect, Robert Riggan, and Anita’s friend, Joanne Cordova, a former cop-turned-crack addict and hooker. In the past, Cordova had submitted to violent sex with Riggan in exchange for drugs; it was just part of her life on the mean streets. But when her friend Anita was murdered, Joanne had to make a choice. She could go to her former colleagues on the police department and tell them what she suspected, which would put her own life in danger as “a snitch.” Or she could look the other way, and let a suspected killer walk free and continue his violent attacks on women.

ROUGH TRADE by New York Times bestselling author Steve Jackson is more than the recounting of a murder, an investigation, and the prosecution of a suspect. It’s also the story of two people from the seething criminal underworld of Denver, Colorado and how their paths crossed on the streets and in the courtroom. There was Riggan, who was raised in his own private hell that included rape, incest and extreme abuse to become a violent sexual predator. And there was Cordova, who had to summon the courage, and suffer the humiliation, in order to pull herself out of the abyss into which she'd fallen to testify against the man she believed killed her friend. And in doing so, find her own personal redemption.

Well written. However, it felt as though Anita Jones,the victim, was an aside to the story. A lot of attention to detail in regards to Riggens and Cordova but I felt as though the victim was barely touched on.

This taut and well-told crime take does a fine job of getting into the heads of the principal players. JoJo Cordova is a perfect representation of a good person subjected to a dangerous drug addiction can go from being a working police officer to a working prostitute desperate for her next hit of crack. Jackson writes with clarity and precision, and never strays into schmaltzy emotion when describing the horrors of these "rough trade" lifestyles. He writes with compassion but by no means does he glorify or excuse the criminality here. He offers understanding. And in the world of true crime, what better goal can a book have?

Been a fan of Steve Jacksons books for quite sometime. He has hit a home run with Rough trade. The case was about prostitution and a murder trial. The book tells the story of the victim Anita Jones who was introduced to crack cocaine and fell into the clutches of prostitution, eventually leading to her death. Great read.

Steve Jackson did an excellent job portraying the life of Robert Riggan Jr. In my eyes Riggan is a sick man. His treatment of women was bad but what he did to Anita Jones is absolutely sickening & disturbing. I am glad to know that justice was served
