I grew up in Douglas. It was a wonderful place to be a kid and teen. It all ended with the era of Joe Borane. If there ever was a crooked cop, he's it. He ruined a great town with his greed and 'above the law superiority.' Everyone in Douglas knew - no one said anything. I remember Borane being a Deacon or Usher at church, such a hypocrite. I knew the guy that wrote the song "Joe Cocaine" and he was right about Borane and drugs, whores, bribes. Mr. Morgan did a great job in his book. I lived a lot of that and it's sad to read everything that a great little town used to be and is now a smuggling and killing place. I don't think anything was exagerated. I think he left out a lot about Borane and would have like to see more in there.

There a plenty of stories in this book spanning decades. Some of the stories are a little over dramatized for my taste. If someone is looking to read what it is like to enforce the law on the border I would recomend it.

I identify with Mr. Morgan. I, too, am a government worker and bear witness to decades of inefficiency, apathy and neglect. In parallel my own department has become a sunken ship. Morgan tells some great stories of remote Cochise County. I've been to many of these places and know some of the people he mentions. Linking his experience to the (Grim)Reaper brings it all to focus. And, if you really want to know what's going on, on our Southern Border, Mr. Morgan lets out the stops and pulls no punches.
