Emma y las otras senoras del narco / Emma and Other Narco Women

Anabel Hernandez

Este libro forma parte del largo recorrido periodistico de Anabel Hernandez dentro del complejo mundo del crimen organizado en Mexico, asi como de su incesante busqueda por entender los diversos componentes de los carteles de la droga, los cuales tienen sumida a la nacion desde hace decadas en una espiral de violencia en la que todos los dias son explotadas, desaparecidas o asesinadas decenas de personas inocentes, muchas de ellas del sexo femenino. Desde su bestseller Los senores del narco (2010), este es quizas el acercamiento mas intimo a la cupula del narcotrafico, un detras de camaras de lo que ocurre en el multimillonario negocio criminal. En Emma y las otras senoras del narco la autora recorre el velo y muestra las pulsiones mas profundas que hacen a los narcos buscar poder y dinero a toda costa. La autora de El traidor (2019), multigalardonada y reconocida internacionalmente como experta en temas de narcotrafico, una vez mas gira la mesa del tablero y ofrece al lector un analisis casi antropologico de los capos de la droga y su entorno mas cercano desde una nueva optica: el mundo de sus mujeres. En estas paginas desfilan personajes como Emma Coronel y otras esposas de importantes narcotraficantes, una ex Miss Universo, y algunas de las actrices, cantantes y conductoras de television mas reconocidas y aplaudidas en Mexico, tanto del pasado como de la epoca actual. Madres, esposas y amantes. Mujeres que se amoldan a las reglas machistas de sus amos y bailan ante ellos -en privado, fiestas u orgias- la danza de los siete velos, y lo hacen sobre los cadaveres de los miles que han sido victimas de los mismos hombres a quienes deleitan con su complice presencia a cambio de dinero, joyas y propiedades. Con el rigor investigativo que la caracteriza, Anabel Hernandez, a traves de entrevistas realizadas a testigos de los hechos, lleva al lector a las reuniones familiares, fiestas y alcobas de diversos narcotraficantes donde ocurren las historias de amor, compra y venta de placer, incesto, ambicion, traicion y venganza. Un mundo hasta ahora desconocido. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION This book is part of Anabel Hernandez’s long journalistic journey within the complex world of organized crime in Mexico. It continues her relentless search to understand the drug cartels' various components which have plunged the country in a downward spiral of violence for decades, and one in which dozens of innocent people are exploited, disappeared, or killed every day, many of them female. Since publishing her bestseller Los senores del narco/Narcoland, this is perhaps the most intimate contact to the leadership in drug trafficking, a behind-the-scenes look at what happens in the multimillion-dollar criminal business. In Emma and Other Narco Women, Hernandez exposes what’s behind the veil and reveals their drive to seek power and money at all costs. The multi-award-winning and internationally recognized expert on the drug trafficking world, turns the table once again and offers readers an almost anthropological analysis of drug lords and those closest to their inner circle from a new point of view: the women within that world. In these pages we see women such as Emma Coronel and other wives of important drug lords, a former Miss Universe, some of Mexico’s most recognized and acclaimed actresses, singers, and television hosts from the past and from present time. Mothers, wives, and lovers. Women who conform to their masters' male chauvinistic rules and dance the dance of the seven veils for them -in private, at parties, or orgies-, and they do it on the conscience of thousands of victims of those same masters who they entertain in exchange for money, jewelry, and properties. Through interviews, witnesses to events, and the investigative meticulousness and that characterizes her, Anabel Hernandez takes the reader to family gatherings, parties, and even inside the bedrooms of various drug bosses where we witness love stories, the sale of goods, the sale of sexual favors, incest, betrayals, and revenge. An, until now, secret world.
