About this title

Synopsis:

A former undercover narcotics agent talks to suppliers, dealers, and addicts to provide a stark portrait of the Tucson, Arizona drug subculture as well as the cocaine trade in the American Southwest

From Library Journal:

As Charles Bowden ( Red Line , LJ 10/15/89) says in the foreword to this "ballad of cocaine," "Here, for once, you'll hear the accounts of the people in the life--not talking to their parole officers, but just talking. " Strong has interviewed people throughout the Tucson area, mostly Mexican-Americans, and all involved in the drug trade in some way, and has put their oral accounts together with brief introductions and afterwords. All the speakers give fresh insight into the effect of drugs on individuals and on society. An owner of a limousine rental company tells why drug dealers are his best customers; a local kingpin describes his week-long torture by suppliers, then tells how he later embraced one of the torturers, who had only been doing his job. A remarkable book, recommended for all crime and sociology collections.
