A Femme Fatale Story

This reads like a great book. Seduction and rising to the top of a male dominated drug trade. Fear the power of the Femme Fatale.
The cross necklace around her neck is a nice touch too.

Police say the raven-haired 46-year-old spent more than a decade working her way to the top echelons of Mexico's male-dominated drug trade, uniting Colombian and Mexican gangs, and seducing several notorious kingpins.
Dubbed the "Queen of the Pacific," she even has her own song — a "narcocorrido" folk ballad about drug traffickers by Los Tucanes de Tijuana that pays homage to her as "a top lady who is a key part of the business." [Source]
