A true investigative reporter will let nothing stop him from exposing the truth. But Mexican American journalist Alfredo Corchado may be the ultimate badass for relentlessly reporting on the government corruption and murderous drug cartels of Mexico even after receiving a tip that within 24 hours he would be the next target. Rather than flee, Corchado investigated the tip and the result is his new book, Midnight in Mexico: A Reporter’s Journey Through a Country’s Descent Into Darkness.
