­DEA commander and House of Death whistleblower Sandalio Gonzalez said to me when I first started reporting on this drug-war horror story.... "If this had been a city on the Canadian border, these murders would not have happened. Our government would not allow Canadian citizens to be tortured and murdered. But, in the House of Death case, they did let it happen, because it was El Paso and Juarez and a bunch of Mexicans that they don't give a shit about."

Dispatches from the House of Death tells the all-too true story of how and why a U.S.-paid Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) informant, who had a leading role with the infamous Juarez Cartel, was allowed to participate in mass murder in Mexico - with the knowledge of his U.S. law enforcement handlers and prosecutors. In the course of the carnage, a DEA agent operating in Juarez as well as his family are nearly assassinated, resulting in the evacuation of all DEA personnel from Juarez. When a DEA supervisor seeks to expose the informant's role in the bloodshed, he is silenced by his superiors while an effort is launched by ICE to deport the informant back to Mexico and certain death. In the end, the entire bloody affair is whitewashed away in a coverup born of callous self-interest and indifference that reaches to the highest levels of the U.S. government.

"It is a giant of a story. There is simply no way to understand the 'war on drugs' without reading this book." - Al Giordano, author, journalist, and the founder and publisher of The Narco News Bulletin [narconews.com]

"For Bill Conroy of narconews.com, who stood his watch when others turned away and pretended none of this had happened." - author and journalist Charles Bowden, a dedication from his book Dreamland: The Way Out of Juarez

"...The mystery, which Bill Conroy explores with great determination, is why the U.S. government allowed murders implicating law enforcement to go unrepented and unpunished." - Bill Lueders, journalist and author, former editor of The Progressive

"...Bill Conroy did not shy away from the sword (the government). He is like 'el mesquite verde, no se rajo.' He went above and beyond his call of duty." - Cele Castillo, former DEA agent, author and Chicano artist

"Bill Conroy's exposing the truth about the so-called war on drugs placed his life and family in jeopardy..."- Ruben Gonzalez, former Associate Special Agent in Charge, U. S. Department of Homeland Security/Office of Investigations, Houston
