Freddy Carreto and Roberto Bolaño write about paid killers.
For the first, you can read my note here, for the second, you can read his short story here.
I admire both writers for drawing my attention to the killers that control our lives, and sometimes are even part of the government.
I didn't know Freddy and Roberto personally, but I know people that knew them. As far as I know Freddy is alive, and Roberto is dead.
Bolaño is referred as Bolantes, by Carlos Franz here. because of his similarity to Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra, who like these two risked his life.
