Advance Praise for Confessions of a Cartel Hit Man

“Corona’s engaging story offers an insider’s peek into gang and prison life, providing insight into how a seemingly average boy can become a drug kingpin and a murderer. Recommended for true crime lovers.” –Library Journal

“In the world of LA crime writers, the late great Tony Rafael was ahead of his time. He perceived truths and stories that others couldn’t, or wouldn’t. The world he helps Martin Corona take us to here is one that few writers would have dared enter, much less known how to navigate. Don’t miss this–the latest and last work of a great crime writer.”
–Sam Quinones, author of Dreamland: The True Tale of America’s Opiate Epidemic

“Martin Corona takes you inside the scary world of drug gangs and killers as only a man who walked those streets can. His book is courageous, and a gripping read. It should be required reading for anybody concerned about gang violence, street crime and border security.”  —Fred Burton, Vice President for Intelligence, Stratfor, former State Department special agent, and author of Ghost: Confessions of a Counterterrorism Agent  

“Martin Corona has written a raw, gritty first-person account of the dark world of the cartel enforcer. His book is a rare and very personal look into that universe, drawn from his own experiences of brutal violence. Corona spent so long in the belly of the beast that’s it is nothing short of a miracle that he has returned to tell this shocking tale.”
–Ricardo Ainslie, Director, Mexico Center, University of Texas at Austin
