En un rancho al sur de Texas, un hombre conocido como El Verdugo desecha cientos de partes de cuerpos cercenados en barriles met#65533;licos.

En la ciudad m#65533;s grande de Brasil, un misterioso prisionero le ordena a sicarios que ejecuten a cuarenta y un agentes de la polic#65533;a y a guardias carcelarios en el lapso de dos d#65533;as. En el sur de M#65533;xico, un fabricante de metanfetaminas es venerado como un santo mientras castiga a sus enemigos con la justicia del Antiguo Testamento.

Esta obra es el primer relato definitivo de las guerras del crimen que avasallan a Am#65533;rica Latina. Ioan Grillo ha cubierto la regi#65533;n desde 2001 y ha obtenido acceso a m#65533;ltiples niveles de la cadena de mando de los c#65533;rteles en lo que #65533;l llama los nuevos campos de batalla de las Am#65533;ricas. Movi#65533;ndose entre guetos controlados por milicias y los despachos de los principales responsables de las pol#65533;ticas p#65533;blicas, Grillo ofrece una nueva e inquietante visi#65533;n de una guerra que est#65533; fuera de control y que sigue cobrando vidas diariamente.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

In a ranch in south Texas, a man known as The Executioner disposes of hundreds of severed body parts in metal barrels. In the largest city in Brazil, a mysterious prisoner orders hitmen to execute forty-one policemen and prison guards in the span of two days. In the south of Mexico, a methamphetamine producer is revered like a saint while he punishes his enemies with Old-Testament-style justice.

This work is the first definitive tale of the crime wars that dominate Latin America. Ioan Grillo has covered the region since 2001 and has gained access to multiple levels of the chain of command of the cartels in what he calls the "new battlefields" of the Americas. Moving between ghettos controlled by militias and the offices of the people responsible for public policy, Grillo offers a new, troubling vision of a war that is out of control and that claims more lives every day.
