Too much gratuitous violence
Reviewed in Australia on 20 October 2020
Obviously the author is very well informed regarding the flow of drugs into the United States and much of the book is well worth a read just to give readers an informed view of the business and the impossibility of reducing that flow with the 'War on Drugs' policy. However these sensible and informative discourses are interspersed with episodes of the most horrific violence, which I found off-putting.
The book has well drawn characters and is a reasonable story
