The Black Hand is the true story of Rene Enriquez, aka “Boxer,” and his rise in a secret criminal organization, a new Mafia, that already has a grip on all organized crime in California and soon all of the United States. This Mafia is using a base army of an estimated 60,000 heavily armed, loyal Latino gang members, called Surenos, driven by fear and illicit profits.

They are the most dangerous gang in American history and they wave the flag of the Black Hand. A riveting and bloody saga of murderous gangsters in Southern California written in an “as told to” style, but in a blend of first-person memoir and third-person literary reporting. A mobster with first-hand knowledge of all the material, who was in the thick of Eme business for two decades, Rene “Boxer” Enriquez had an unparalleled reputation as a mob enforcer who reached the upper echelon of the organization at a relatively young age. This is his harrowing story.

Chris Blatchford has book signing for “The Black Hand” at Vroman’s Bookstore in Pasadena, California

Rene Enriquez defected from the Mexican Mafia in 2003 and debriefed with prison officials that were videotaped.
