Summary

Rene "Boxer" Enriquez grew up in East L.A., where gang fights and drive-by shootings, fueled by rage, drugs, and alcohol, were everyday occurrences. After he was sent to prison, at nineteen, Enriquez was recruited by La Eme, the near-mythic Mexican Mafia, which is arguably the most well-armed and dangerous gang in American history. A young man without fear who would kill without hesitation, Enriquez's loyalty and iron will quickly drove him up the ranks, from Mob enforcer to the gang's upper echelons, where he would help rule for nearly two decades. Seeking respect, he devoted his life to a bloody cause only to find betrayal and disillusionment.Award-winning journalist Chris Blatchford's The Black Hand is an astonishing look at the inner workings, secret meetings, and elaborate murder plots that make up the daily routine of the Mafia brothers-an intense and unprecedented tale of depravity, violence, and redemption.
