Abstract:

"These are the true confessions of an assassin. Martin Corona started out life seemingly as American as a midcentury American kid could be. He was the son of a US marine, bouncing from one warm beach base to another. But the combination of an abusive father, ill-advised medication, and some bad choices before he was even a teenager led him into a brutal, murderous outlaw life. In and out of prison, Corona, aka 'Nite Owl, ' soon came into contact with Sureños and the so-called Mexican Mafia. After having proved himself to be fearless and loyal, he joined an elite crew run by the Arellano Félix brothers, founders of the Tijuana drug cartel that dominated the cross-border drug trade and the associated bloody gang warfare for decades. Corona and his crew would leave their luxurious hideout in Mexico, cross the border whenever they wished, kill whoever needed to be killed, and often return to their "office" the same day. Special Agent of the California Department of Justice Steve Duncan pursued the arrest of Martin Corona for years and wrote the foreword to this powerful memoir. He says Corona is the only former cartel hit man he knows who is truly remorseful. Corona's turning state's evidence led to the arrest of Javier Arellano Felix and the ultimate downfall of the Tijuana Cartel in 2006. But Corona wasn't free from his past. This story gives insight into how one human being became able to kill without hesitation--and how, no longer a killer, and asking for forgiveness, he now lives with himself."--Jacket.
