Buried Secrets: A True Story of Serial Murder by Edward Humes

From the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist comes what PUBLISHERS WEEKLY called the "definitive study" of the grizzly mass killings in Matamoros, Mexico. In the 1980's, Adolfo Constanzo, devotee of Santeria and powerful cult leader opened shop in Mexico City as a fortune teller. He soon realized that there were greater profits in drug money than the occult, and as his status grew in the drug trade, so too did his legendary brutality. Kidnappings, torture, and murder were three weapons in his arsenal that he used to keep a vice grip on the drug trade.

Humes explores the intersections of the drug trade and politics in a way that still resonates today, also touching upon the religious elements that play into the iconic status of drug kingpins. After the ritual murder of Mark Kilroy, a student from America, Constanzo died in a shoot-out and many of his followers went to prison. This unflinching, unforgettable story is brought to vivid, terrifying life in "One of the best true-crime tales in recent time."
