Content descriptions

General Note: Title from eBook information screen.
Summary, etc.: This is the true story of a squad of San Diego cops, posing as undocumented immigrants, whose mission is to police the no-man's-land by the international border where men, women, and children cross in the dead of night only to fall prey to ruthless Mexican bandits waiting to rape, rob, and murder them. The Chicago Sun-Times described it as "a saga of courage, craziness, brutality and humor comparable to The Onion Field for storytelling and revelatory power." Newsday said, "splendidan utterly fascinating true-crime story."
