Annotation: Resultado de una larga serie de entrevistas a Sandra Ávila, la Reina del Pacífico, este libro contiene el primer testimonio sobre lo que significa nacer, crecer y vivir dentro de la mafia del narcotráfico. Esta mujer-mito le platica a Julio Scherer su historia, en la cual se manifiesta directamente, con todas sus contradicciones, temores y arrebatos. Su voz, ante el periodista y la opinión pública, retumba poderosa, aunque por momentos se exprese a la defensiva, lacónica y desalentada.
 
Gracias al enorme oficio narrativo de quien es considerado el mejor periodista de México, Sandra Ávila nos presenta las entrañas de ese mundo gobernado por la muerte, pero también habla de su intimidad. "Y en lucha por mostrarse dueña de sí misma" -como escribe Scherer-, resulta contundente: "Me he emborrachado con la vida y he padecido crudas de las que me he levantado. Ahora tropiezo con los muros de mi celda entre la depresión y el ánimo, medio muerta y medio viva, caída y vuelta a levantar..."
 
Libro único en muchos sentidos, La Reina del Pacífico: es la hora de contar se publica en el momento más trascendental de la guerra contra el narcotráfico. Suministra a los lectores piezas cardinales que le permiten descifrar el rompecabezas de esta violencia sin antecedentes que sufre nuestro país y que parece no tener fin.
 
ENGLISH DESCRIPTION
 
The result of a long series of interviews with Sandra Ávila, the “Queen of the Pacific,” this book contains the first testimony of what it means to be born, grow up, and live inside the drug cartels. This infamous woman tells Julio Scherer her story, revealing herself directly, with all her contradictions, fears, and outbursts. Her voice, both with the journalist and with public opinion, resounds powerfully, although at times she is defensive, terse, and discouraged.
 
Thanks to the formidable narrative gift of the man considered the best journalist in Mexico, Sandra Ávila shows us the inner depths of this world governed by death, but she also reveals her private side. “And in the fight to show that she was her own master,” as Scherer writes, “I have been drunk on life and suffered hangovers from which I’ve recovered. Now I bump into my cell walls between depression and motivation, half dead and half alive, fallen and newly arisen…”
 
A unique book in many senses, The Queen of the Pacific: It’s Time to Tell is being published in the most significant moment in the war on the drug trade. It provides readers important pieces that will allow them to decipher the puzzle of this unprecedented and seemingly never-ending violence.
