Horrors unfold in this book like a revenger's tragedy, as lines in the Mexican gangster's codebook are constantly crossed. It becomes acceptable to target the spouses and children of a murdered rival in the drugs trade. Then the guests who attend the funeral; then the police investigating the case; then their families in turn. The ripples of violence spread out inexorably. Bodies are left hanging from traffic bridges for dawn commuters to see, often with a warning message displayed beside them. Those are the bodies that have not been dissolved in the acid baths.

The disgraceful episode that was the BP oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico has become even more so with the news that officials from both Halliburton and BP had been told beforehand that the cement to be used to seal the bottom of the well – and thus prevent such an explosion from occurring – was unstable.
Friday 29 October 2010
Halliburton, a major contractor on BP's doomed Deepwater Horizon oil rig, where a fatal explosion led to the worst-ever offshore oil spill, knew that cement used in the project was unstable but went ahead anyway, a US presidential commission on the disaster has found. The report strengthened BP's case that it shares blame for the Gulf of Mexico disaster with its business partners, and shares in Halliburton fell 16 per cent after the findings.
