'If Juarez is a city of God, it's because the devil is scared to come here.' A Juárez hit man (Sicario) speaks: he has killed hundreds of people, is an expert in torture and kidnapping, and for many years was a commander of the state police, receiving training from the FBI. There is a contract on his life of $250,000, and he lives as a fugitive. This is the unvarnished truth about the war on drugs - the murders, the corruption, the warring cartels, the complicity of the American and Mexican governments, by a man who has seen it and shared in the violence. Through El Sicario's words we see, for the very first time, the life of a cartel hitman in sober yet graphic detail; the distribution of power in this mindblowingly corrupt country; and the contrition of a man who became so disturbed by his day job that he would wake from nightmares throttling his own wife. Framed by two pieces by award-winning journalist Charles Bowden that set the scene for the reader, this deeply chilling and important book shows us the Mexican drugs war as we've never seen it before.

Now an Oscar-contender film featuring Emily Blunt and Benicio del Toro. I'm going to tell you about 20 years of my life dedicated to serving the cartel. Serving them with these hands. Torturing people. And killing. In this unprecedented and chilling monologue, a repentant Mexican hitman tells the unvarnished truth about the war on drugs on the Americans. 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. The well-spoken man that emerges from the pages of El Sicario is one who has been groomed by poverty and driven by a refusal to be one more statistic in the failure of Mexico. He is not boastful, he claims no major standing in organized crime. But he can explain in detail not only torture and murder, but how power is distributed and used in the arrangement between the public Mexican state and law enforcement on the ground - where terror and slaughter are simply tools in implementing policy for both the police and the cartels. And he is not an outlaw or a rebel. He is the state. When he headed the state police anti-kidnapping squad in Juarez, he was also running a kidnapping ring in Juarez. When he was killing people for money in Juarez, he was sharpening his marksmanship at the Federal Police range. Now he lives in the United States as a fugitive. One cartel has a quarter million dollar contract on his head. Another cartel is trying to recruit him. He speaks as a free man and of his own free will - there are no charges against him. He is a lonely voice - no one with his background has ever come forward and talked. He is the future - there are thousands of men like him in Mexico and there will be more in other places. He is the truth no one wants to hear.

In the history of the modern world, there have been few characters more sinister, sadistic, and deeply demented than Baron Ungern-Sternberg. An anti-Semitic fanatic whose penchant for Eastern mysticism and hatred of communists foreshadowed the Nazi scourge that would soon overtake Europe, Ungern- Sternberg conquered Mongolia in 1919 with a ragtag force of White Russians, Siberians, Japanese, and native Mongolians. In the Bloody White Baron, historian and travel writer James Palmer vividly re-creates Ungern-Sternberg's spiral into ever-darker obsessions, while also providing a rare look at the religion and culture of the unfortunate Mongolians he briefly ruled.

Keller es un asesino: profesional, fr�o, seguro de s� mismo, competente y fiable. Sin embargo, tambi�n es una persona compleja: cauteloso y solitario, sin piedad alguna, es eficiente y distante, es propenso a la soledad y a dudar de s� mismo, a tener pesadillas y a preocuparse por su carrera profesional. Su terapeuta cree que su trabajo consiste en resolver problemas empresariales, pero Keller es un asesino a sueldo. Lleva la vida de un empresario solitario bien pagado que viaja con frecuencia; acostumbrado a las impersonales habitaciones de hotel, a recorrer tramos inh�spitos de autopistas en coches de alquiler y a comer en lugares an�nimos. Y, aunque es neoyorquino de nacimiento, fantasea sobre la buena vida en el campo y en cada lugar que visita sue�a con empezar una vida, con una nueva casa, lejos de las presiones y de las complicaciones morales que su l�nea de trabajo implican.El sicario es el debut de Keller, el primero de los cinco libros que componen la serie. La traducci�n de los otros cuatro libros -Hit List, Hit Parade, Hit and Run, y Hit Me- estar� pronto disponible.V�anse algunas rese�as:�Durante a�os Block ha estado escribiendo las aventuras del fatalista asesino a sueldo J.P. Keller, que deja la seguridad de su apartamento en la Primera avenida para aventurarse hacia una ciudad tras otra de los Estados Unidos a petici�n del viejo de White Plains. Keller se enfrenta a la decisi�n de si matar o no a un hombre al que ha llegado a apreciar, tiene que acabar un encargo tras haber acabado con el objetivo equivocado, sirve como pe�n para asesinos que en un principio parecen m�s inteligentes que �l, y se desespera cuando tiene que decidir a qu� cliente va a fallar entre dos que han pagado por matarse el uno al otro. Entre ejecuci�n y ejecuci�n tambi�n aprende m�s sobre el mercado inmobiliario de Oreg�n, va a terapia, se hace coleccionista de sellos y se pregunta si saber m�s sobre las flores enriquecer�a su vida, le compra pendientes a la mujer que saca de paseo a su perro y se preocupa hasta d�nde se puede comprometer con ella y con el perro. Es una combinaci�n de todo a lo que Keller le da vueltas y a lo que no -"En este negocio no tienen cabida las decisiones morales", le reprende la secretaria del viejo- lo que le da esa fascinaci�n melanc�lica. �Es este libro una novela en s� o una serie de historias? Los fans m�s sedientos de Block, encantados de ver al menos tres de las obras maestras -Keller monta a caballo; Keller va a terapia; y Keller, el caballero de brillante armadura- reunidas en un solo volumen, no se preocupar�n m�s de lo que Keller har�a�. Kirkus Reviews�Lawrence Block escribe una sensacional novela sobre un sicario que atraviesa la crisis de los cuarenta. Block nos regala humor a la vez que introspecci�n. Conforme se avanza en la lectura, los lectores se encontrar�n deseando que el asesino encuentre la paz interior�. Boston Herald�Una extra�a y atractiva combinaci�n de un tipo duro, surrealista y caprichoso. Tras cada aventura Keller nos va gustando cada vez m�s, pero tambi�n es un asesino a sangre fr�a. A diferencia de Keller, a quien le gustan las pel�culas en las que se pueden distinguir a los buenos de los malos, los fans de Block pueden agradecer que es un libro en el que no siempre se sabe qui�n es qui�n�.

"These are the true confessions of an assassin. Martin Corona started out life seemingly as American as a midcentury American kid could be. He was the son of a US marine, bouncing from one warm beach base to another. But the combination of an abusive father, ill-advised medication, and some bad choices before he was even a teenager led him into a brutal, murderous outlaw life. In and out of prison, Corona, aka 'Nite Owl, ' soon came into contact with Sureños and the so-called Mexican Mafia. After having proved himself to be fearless and loyal, he joined an elite crew run by the Arellano Félix brothers, founders of the Tijuana drug cartel that dominated the cross-border drug trade and the associated bloody gang warfare for decades. Corona and his crew would leave their luxurious hideout in Mexico, cross the border whenever they wished, kill whoever needed to be killed, and often return to their "office" the same day. Special Agent of the California Department of Justice Steve Duncan pursued the arrest of Martin Corona for years and wrote the foreword to this powerful memoir. He says Corona is the only former cartel hit man he knows who is truly remorseful. Corona's turning state's evidence led to the arrest of Javier Arellano Felix and the ultimate downfall of the Tijuana Cartel in 2006. But Corona wasn't free from his past. This story gives insight into how one human being became able to kill without hesitation--and how, no longer a killer, and asking for forgiveness, he now lives with himself."--Jacket.

"Óscar Osorio despliega en este libro sobre la figura del sicario en la novela colombiana lo mejor de su capacidad crítica. Pone a prueba su honestidad intelectual y su rigor investigativo al confrontar a algunas de las figuras más prestigiosas de nuestra literatura colombiana. Pero no lo hace incurriendo en expresiones altisonantes, ni en frases truculentas. Prefiere emplear su agudeza analítica en cada lectura, opta por construir un diálogo solvente con otros estudiosos de su tema, elige entregarse a la filigrana de la argumentación y de la demostración." Alejandro José López
