Confessions of a Cartel Hitman
The true confessions of a former assassin, who became the leader of an elite crew of hit men for Mexico's most vicious drug cartel.Martin Corona has been convicted of multiple murders committed during his time as a cartel career hit man. These killings were brutal and cruelly efficient. Corona's gang would cross into the United States from their luxurious hideout in Mexico, eradicate whoever needed to be killed north of the border, and return home in the afternoon.In this book, Martin's shocking first-hand confessions illuminate his descent from dealing drugs at the age of twelve to theft, guns and prostitution. He then climbed the ranks of an elite crew run by the Arellano brothers, founders of the Tijuana drug cartel that dominated the Southern California drug trade and much bloody gang warfare for decades. Martin's confessions illuminate how a young boy became a criminal. Both shocking and powerful, it asks us how someone can inflict so much evil and whether they can find forgiveness on the other side.
"Martin Corona takes you inside the scary world of drug gangs and killers as only a man who walked these streets can." * Fred Burton, author of Ghost: Confessions of a Counterterrorism Agent *

He currently speaks to law enforcement organisations on the subject of his crimes and to at-risk youth on the importance of avoiding his mistakes. He now lives with his family in witness supervision.
