Editorial Reviews

Review

“Longmire offers fresh insights into almost every facet of the war on drugs . . . One-stop shopping for basic knowledge about U.S.-Mexican narcotics diplomacy.” ―Kirkus Reviews

“In Cartel Sylvia Longmire furthers our understanding of a very complex health and national security issue south of the border and within the United States itself.” ―Malcolm Beith, author of The Last Narco

“Cartel is a well-balanced blend of organized crime 101 and thought-provoking analysis of the current violence in Mexico. It’s an important addition to the current body of work on the criminal underworld that continues to spread its presence and influence north of the border into the United States. Readers will find themselves on the front line of this decades-old drug war that has finally crossed our border.” ―Samuel Logan, author of This is for Mara Salvatrucha

“There's a real need for an easy-to-read, one-stop-shopping overview of the myriad issues facing us from Mexico's cartels. Longmire allows people to finally have the context to make sense of the drug war.” ―Nicholas Stein, Series Producer, National Geographic's Border Wars

“Longmire's hard hitting, law enforcement-centered view of the situation on our border with Mexico is valuable and timely. Her up-to-the-minute, fact based account provides a much needed perspective on a problem that has been hijacked by exaggeration, and hyperbole and outright misinformation. It should be required reading for all who care about making our borders more secure.” ―Terry Goddard, former Arizona Attorney General 2003-2011

“From an experienced cartel analyst and special agent, this is a powerful and very comprehensive look into the broad scope of Mexican drug violence and its impact on the security of our nation. One of the best books I've seen to understand Mexican cartels, border violence, drug trafficking and the ramifications of spill-over crime into America. I encourage you to read this book.” ―Fred Burton, VP Intelligence, Stratfor, and author of Chasing Shadows

“The insights here are invaluable--and essential. Longmire's depth of knowledge and analysis come in well-crafted prose that's as thrilling to read as any novel and compelling for even the most casual reader.” ―David Silverberg, Editor, Homeland Security Today

About the Author

She has been interviewed on Geraldo at Large, CNN and CNN International, and BBC World Radio, and her writing is regularly featured in Homeland Security Today magazine.
