Reviews

Grillo's clear-eyed, sobering account has authority and a flair for colourful anecdotes, making for disturbing but riveting reading * Metro *
A superb report form the front lines of narco-violence * Independent *
[A] shining example of dogged, impassioned and courageous reporting ... compelling ... his pace is furious, like driving at top speed along a wild mountain track in a pickup and there is no doubting his expertise, his compassion or his grit * Daily Express *
It is hard enough to report the facts of Mexico's crazy death spiral of drug violence. Ioan Grillo goes much, much deeper. He explains why El Narco threatens the soul of this beautiful country. He tells us how we got here -- William Booth, bureau chief for Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean * Washington Post *
A fascinating and terrifying account * Sydney Morning Herald *
Heartbreaking ... El Narco is a fine work of journalism * Irish Times *
Remarkable * Houston Chronicle *
Puts a human face on the bloodshed * Boston Globe *
First-hand research over ten years, in which the author sometimes put his life at risk, and a tight focus on Mexico alone, make for an account which is vivid, disturbing, and sometimes brutal * Irish Examiner *
In these vivid and engrossing books, Ioan Grillo proves himself a master of reportage, exploring territory few journalists have tread before him, and exposing the homicidal and hypocritical nature of America's battlefields * Irish Examiner *
