A good read, kind of repetitive, but held my interest.

This book is extremely well written and I read it in two sittings. The absolute corruption that occurs from the city streets, to local, state and federal government officials absolutely flabbergasted me and Evan Wright and Jon Roberts show you exactly how it's done. This will shatter a lot of illusions and make you think what is REALLY going on in the world when it comes to cocaine and other drug distributions. The authors show you that anyone can be bought and everyone has a price.
