Summary
"In this unprecedented and chilling monologue, a repentant Mexican hitman tells the unvarnished truth about the war on drugs - the murders, the corruption, the warring cartels, the complicity of the American and Mexican governments - and reveals why the violence that now defines the American-Mexican border will only worsen. This book represents the first time a Mexican hitman has spoken on the record so candidly about his life, his crimes, his repentance, and why the killings will continue. This book represents an extraordinary and unprecedented glimpse into a world that otherwise occupies the shadows of our imagination. It is a testament to the editors' tenacity as reporters that they were able to get El Sicario to speak so openly about his life and crimes"--
