Annotation: "Pablo Acosta was a living legend in his Mexican border town of Ojinaga. He smuggled tremendous amounts of drugs into the United States; he survived numerous attempts on his power and his life by rivals and he blessed the town with charity and civic improvements. 
He was finally slain in 1987 during a raid by Mexican officials with the cooperation of US law enforcement. Poppa has turned out a detailed and exciting book, covering in depth Acosta's life the other drug factions that battled with him the village of Ojinaga; and the logistics of the drug operation. 
The result is a nonfiction account with enough greed, treachery, shootouts, and government corruption to fascinate true crime and crime fiction readers alike. 
Highly recommended."—Library Journal
