El Zar De La Droga: La Vida y La Muerte De Un Narcotraficante Mexicano by Terrence E. Poppa
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


During the last years of his violent life, Pablo Acosta smuggled a staggering 60 tons of cocaine a year into the United States -- one third of the total US consumption. Set only miles from the Texas border, Drug Lord is an extraordinary inside look at how drug trafficking really works in Mexico. Based on interviews with Acosta and other insiders, Poppa weaves a tale of the smuggler's rise from humble beginnings, his violent struggle to maintain control over his empire, the treachery and over-indulgence that fostered his downfall, and his grisly death at the hands of the judiciales, the Mexican federal police he had been paying off for years and who turned against him when he was no longer of use. Text in Spanish.
