Editorial Reviews

Review

An excellent job of accurately describing the labyrinth that was the DHS merger and the resulting attitudes, short fails and missed opportunities. I commend Ramirez and those agents like him, who made every effort to turn the tide and made ICE a true federal investigative agency with a mission of protecting and serving America. --Alonzo Pena, former DHS/ICE Deputy Director

Drawing on twenty-seven years of investigative experience as a federal agent on our southern border and in Mexico, Ramirez brings the dark side of human activity to light through an inspired arrangement of vignettes. Though often accounts of the barbaric cruelty and heartless exploitation surrounding drug trafficking and human smuggling, Ramirez tells his stories with a touching and uplifting humanity. --Terrence Poppa-award winning journalist and autor of "Drug Lord; the life and death of a Mexican Kingpin"

Format: Paperback
I ordered this book after seeing a review of it in a local paper and I'm glad I did. The author gives a first view narrative of real events during his law enforcement career with Immigration and Customs Enforcement. He describes powerful stories involving corruption and violence. It also comments on today's policies that are the driving force behind our border security which are relevant given today's policitcal landscape. It's a fast & interesting read.

Format: Paperback
This book is not your cops and robbers but is a good representation of how it was for us during those days, especially for David, who always sought to be out in front. To accomplish what we were always told could not be done, was just the kind of work we did. The kind of responsibility, rapport and trust that is felt by acting as the primary back-up to an undercover partner, it's just hard to explain. But, David gives a great effort and makes it seem easy in this book in addition to all of the other good things well represented about his life and his work.

This is a well written book that keeps the reader on their toes by flowing from one story to the next. The various stories from the authors past will make the reader seriously think about what it would have been like to live Ramirez's life. Readers are lucky that Ramirez has shared his experiences.
