EL SICARIO: The Autobiography of a Mexican Assassin
By Molly Molloy and Charles Bowden
El Sicario is the hidden face of America’s war on drugs. He is a contract killer who functioned as a commandante in the Chihuahuan State police, who was trained in the US by the FBI, and who for twenty years kidnapped, tortured and murdered people for the drug industry at the behest of Mexican drug cartels. He is a hit man who came off the killing fields alive. He left the business and turned to Christ. And then he decided to tell the story of his life and work.
Charles Bowden first encountered El Sicario while reporting for the book Murder City. As trust between the two men developed, Bowden bore witness to the Sicario’s unfolding confession, and decided to tell his story.
