5.0 out of 5 stars easy pickings in europe, 2 Dec 2004
This review is from: Grafters (Paperback)
Great book,it shows either how naive the europeans were or what a horrible bunch us brits are or were.
The book also goes into detail about the start of the football hooligan,life growing up in an inner city with the ravages of poverty & drugs.
For myself who unfortunately have spent some of my life in foreign prisons i can relate to it but for someone who hasnt it is a real eye opener(my girlfriend read it & was horrified.
I started the book on a long haul flight & had almost finished it when coming in to land so i would say it is a fantastic read.
BUY IT YOU WONT BE DISAPPOINTED

5.0 out of 5 stars drug lord.....it could only happen in Mexico, 1 Dec 2004
excellent read....amazing how a government can control the distribution of drugs an the drugs traffickers are just the pawns played out in serious business.Poppa gets you interested straight away by writing the book aimed mainly at Pablo Acosta & his associates rather than go straight to the point of the Mexican authorities being responsible for allowing the illegal trade of drugs in the first place.
