"What's the difference between a person that leaves his house, takes the public transportation and completes his labor day, and another one that leaves, seizes, tortures, mutilates, negotiates, murders, gets rid of a body and collects a rescue?" That's how the disturbing journey of Pack begins, a journalistic investigation of great importance that undertakes the task of recording a wild present and submerges itself into the voluminous files of the kidnapping in Mexico. Dozens of judicial files and police reports intertwine in its pages, along with the revealing testimonies of victims, plagiarists, jailers and former public officials that offer us the keys to understand the insides of this felony. Humberto Padgett rakes all the kidnapping modalities with an incisive critic look and a convenient irony dose. When addressing cases like the one of young Fernando Marti's plagiarism or the cloudy affair of Florence Cassez, the author sustains the perception that the State has not only failed in its basic obligation of offering security, but rather in many occasions has become an accomplice that doesn't allow us to distinguish who the true enemy really is. ¿Cuál es la diferencia entre una persona que deja su casa, toma el transporte público y cumple su jornada laboral, y otra que sale, acecha, levanta, tortura, mutila, negocia, asesina, se deshace de un cuerpo y cobra un rescate? Así comienza el inquietante recorrido de Jauría, una investigación periodística de gran alcance que emprende la tarea de registrar un presente desenfrenado y se adentra en los voluminosos archivos del secuestro en México. En sus páginas se entrelazan decenas de expedientes judiciales y partes policiacos con reveladores testimonios de víctimas, plagiarios, carceleros y ex funcionarios públicos que nos ofrecen las claves para comprender las entrañas de este crimen. Humberto Padgett rastrea todas las modalidades de secuestro por medio de una incisiva mirada crítica y una conveniente dosis de ironía.
