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.” “The definitive book on the most despicable yet fascinating criminal of our time.” —Ann Rule, author of THE STRANGER BESIDE ME “Chilling... A masterful job.” —WASHINGTON POST “Intriguing... One of the best true-crime tales in recent time." —PUBLISHERS WEEKLY “A fascinating trip.... Humes has crafted a book that reaches beyond Constanzo's demented circle to explore the dimensions of modern superstition, its importance in the changing demographics of the Sun Belt and its appeal to criminals.” —LOS ANGELES TIMES “This book and its chilling revelations will never leave you.” —SAN DIEGO TRIBUNE “Terrific... a highly readable, authoritative account of a particularly gruesome chapter in border history.” —DALLAS MORNING NEWS “A chilling story of murder and religious mania... this book will be in demand. Recommended.” —LIBRARY JOURNAL “Dares to reveal the bungling and ego-driven machination of U.S. officials and their Mexican counterparts.” —MIAMI HERALD

"Why Men Marry" is written to address multiple reasons for men embracing the institution of marriage. It is my opinion that many real-life motives are not discussed or simply written off as trivial. For example: a man may marry to find out if love really exists. The male becomes exasperated by revolving door relationships that simply demand more and more material expectations for continued involvement. Exploring personal motives for marriage can produce a lifetime of growth, accomplishment, and personal satisfaction to the individual who is willing to invest time and energy into future rewards. Marriage for convenience hinders the prospect of mutual satisfaction and the betterment of our society. Better marriages will bring a healthier society. It is my belief that reading concise episodes of individual lives will open a new world of discovery about yourself. If you can appreciate uncovering fifty reasons why men entertain marriage then "Why Men Marry" will be a book you will want to read and give to a friend for discussion. Each story can be quickly read to uncover the understanding of the male's mind for undertaking the mystery of marriage. The book is designed to be read while having morning coffee or enjoying a break at the office. Food for thought is what I used as a diet for this book. Are you hungry for new ideas about marriage?
