"Ms. Longmire has done a great job and a great service, as there's a real need for an easy-to-read, one-stop-shopping overview of the myriad issues facing us from Mexico's cartels. Her book allows people to finally have the context sorely needed to make sense of the huge amounts of news they consume... but, currently, with so little understanding." -- Nicholas Stein, Series Producer, National Geographic’s "Border Wars"
“Great read from the eyes of an experienced cartel analyst and special agent. A powerful and very comprehensive look into the broad scope of Mexican drug violence and impact to the security of our nation. One of the best books I've seen to understand Mexican cartels, border violence, drug trafficking and the ramifications of spill-over crime into America. I encourage you to read this book.” --Fred Burton, VP Intelligence, Stratfor, and author of Chasing Shadows
“Sylvia Longmire’s insights are invaluable—and essential. Her depth of knowledge and analysis come in well-crafted prose that’s as thrilling to read as any novel and compelling for even the most casual reader.” --David Silverberg, Editor, Homeland Security Today
