Narcas: The Secret Rise of Women in Latin America's Cartels is a short, quick read by Deborah Bonello. It is perhaps the length and quality of two long-form journalistic assignments.

The book's promise is to show that women are extremely influential in the world of narco-trafficking. Unfortunately, Bonello does not prove the thesis with these few case studies.

Bonello does not do very much gumshoe reporting, except for a trip she took to Honduras that reads like a travel story and a trip to a city in Mexico where she talks to a plastic surgeon and reports on Mexican fashion culture. Most of her sources are news outlets and websites, followed by a great deal of speculation and commentary.

Bonello's writing is very accessible and interesting, but it is light on information, first-hand-reporting, and is quite repetitive. I would love to see more information than just this small round of case studies.

Journalist Deborah Bonillo, a self-described "narco nerd", examines the lives of Latin American female cartel operatives and finds them, if not uniformly glamorous, at least filled with agency and power. She wasn’t able to directly approach her subjects, but she does capture the poverty, misogyny, and lack of opportunities that characterize their milieu. This short book is probably not the definitive treatment of the topic..
