Wolf Boys by Dan Slater is a grisly story about how a Mexican drug cartel known as Los Zetas chose, groomed and trained two American youths into assassins in order to help secure their foothold in America. The setting is the border town of Laredo, Texas during the early years of this century as the violence was escalating into an all-out war between gangs that were vying for control of this valuable smuggling route across the border and into the American heartland.

I found this an interesting story but a bit uneven. The author included a lot of fact and figures that I thought were unnecessary to the main story. He researched the history of Laredo and border disputes that went back to the 1700’s. The beginning of the book and the last 100 pages or so were compelling as the violence of the drug world with it’s viscous competition, murders and brutal retaliations were exposed.
