Well written. Intriguing look into the early days of the cocaine industry. The main character, though he has a charming appeal to so many of his contacts, demonstrates self-centeredness in the extreme. His selfishness has helped ruin scores of lives and relationships among cocaine users. The victims of the cocaine trade, including the poor farmers growing the stuff for the cartels, are of little consequence to him when eclipsed by his enormous greed and pursuit of the best deal.
