Very well written, engaging, strong... puts a lot of "intellectual" novels to shame on all accounts. I loved it

I usually do not read books but once i read the first couple of pages i had to buy it and i do not regret this decision. I have read this book two times and the second time is even better thatthe first

I do not spend much time reading because i become quickly bored but this book shows the real truth between how crime and government go hand in hand.Greatly written and unforgettale story that makes you stop to think.

Very accurately told. I have been on the front lines of the farce that is the 'War on Drugs' for too many years. This is a great story that every American should read!

This book is a must read for any person. It keeps you on the edge of your seat as if you were watching a thriller movie. The ride that the author takes you on is unforgetable.

Great book. The true life story of a wild drug lord in Mexico. This book demonstates the rise and fall of a drug king pin. The book opens your eyes to height corruption goes too and the ways narcotics keep flowing to meet the worldwide demand. Keeps u reading allthough after the detailed battle that led Acosta's death the book takes an effort to finish.

The reading was easy and mind boggling- the people live too close to home and the story was too scarry for words.

This information is such an important part of US and Mexican History yet you can't read about it anywhere else! Particulary interesting is Poppa's revenue comparison betwen Pemex and the Amado fuentes Mafia. Any study on immigration or Mexican/US Economic Policy is incomplete with out the info in this book. Must read. THIS SHOULD BE A MOVIE.

Terrence think that because of him they killed this guy! to him I say 'Keep dreaming' If you would have something to do with this you will not be were you are right now. Mexican goverment is corrupt but, who isn't?
