Reviews
Well written tale of the effect the cartels have on the ordinary people of Mexico and Central America. Heartbreaking in that the scenarios are all too real for many people. Sympathetic to the plight of those who are forced to migrate to 'El Norte' by reasons of fear of violence and the effects of situations that change the lives of the protagonists.
