'The Last Narc' tells the story of a fallen hero, the men who killed hi, and the one man who risked everything to find out what really happened and why.
The official summary reads, "Highly decorated special agent Hector Berellez, who was assigned to lead the DEA's investigation of Camarena’s murder, peels back the layers of myth and propaganda to reveal the bone-chilling truth about a conspiracy that stretches from the killing fields of Mexico to the halls of power in Washington, DC."
"Berellez's powerful testimony appears alongside that of Camarena’s brave widow, as well as three Guadalajara Cartel insiders. These men were corrupt Jalisco State policemen who, at the time of Camarena’s murder, served as bodyguards to legendary drug lords Rafael Caro Quintero and Ernesto Fonseca Carrillo."
"Eventually, they became informants for Berellez and helped him crack the most infamous murder of the War on Drugs," it adds.
