Product Description

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)

Book Description

A Mexican drug cartel hit man reflects on twenty years of killing, torture and kidnapping in the most violent city on earth. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Format: Paperback
This book was a purchase that I made on the fly after reading a brief part of it through an article in the Independent.

It is certainly shocking but you really need to understand the larger context of the drug war to get a full appreciation of how this book fits in.

Read Amexica for this and then if you are interested in one very specific part of it, read this.

Bought this as a holiday read and wish I had picked something else instead. Thought the introduction was over written and returned to the same point several times. After reading the book through I can only assume they did this to pad out the rest of the book.
Wouldnt recommend.

Brought this book after seeing it at Gatwick airport and was looking forward to a good read. Sadly, this was not the case, I was expecting some type of 'confessions' but found none. Not an interesting read and not a book I would recommend to other True Crime readers.

Just to think that is situation even exists is another massive chunk out of the 'civilised' modern world. I haven't seen the documentary but there are some that would say that it's probably not real. Sad to say, it's more likely than unlikely.

I expected more detail on the Sicario's work, but this is background story detail and less action.
