9780099559955: El Sicario: Confessions of a Cartel Hit Man. Edited by Molly Molloy and Charles Bowden

Meet El Sicario. A fugitive in the US with a $250,000 price tag on his head. He has executed hundreds of people, is an expert in torture, spent years working for the state police, and received training from the FBI. In grim and graphic detail he offers a series of confessions: Why he first became involved with the cartels and how they operate; The most effective way to torture your victim; and, The corrosive experience of looking into someone's eyes as you strangle them to death. To read this book is to enter a world of terror and corruption and to understand the man who has seen it all and, for now, lived to tell the tale.

Review:

"'Deeply disturbing'" Scotsman "'A glimpse into the brutal world of Mexican drug wars and a man tasked with pulling the trigger and torturing rivals. It's bloody, scary and disturbing.'" Time Out "'There could be no better or more vivid description of what it takes to kill to order...Award-winning journalist Charles Bowden and Molly Molloy have collaborated in a chilling descriptive of the darker side of life in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico ****'" Irish News "The Savagery in Mexico is our glimpse of the coming wars in this 21st century of globalised capitalism. So far, we Cassandras who endeavour to report it do so from the outside. Now, the master of border noir, Charles Bowden, and the chronicler of carnage from bloody day to bloody day, Molly Molloy, penetrate its dark heart. The story of El Sicario is at once that of the killers and torturers who propel this nightmare, and a yearning for redemption from its opaque depths that resonate in all of us. Terrifying, but not to know this is ignorance." Ed Vulliamy, author of Amexica
