Lo ha visto todo y un poco más, después de pasar más de veinte años en un trabajo al que muchos oficiales renuncian en menos de sies meses. Estas son las historias crudas y gráficas de Terry y sus compañeros, "Las ratas de la frontera", que patrullan las tierras yermas de los Estados Unidos, donde las balas son la moneda y la sangre se toma como pago. A través de las palabras de un hombre que ha estado ahí, los lectores podrán sentir el caos que se ha apoderado de la frontera de los EE.UU.: desde las condiciones inhumanas que sufren las personas para llegar a suelo estadounidense hasta líderes militares descaradamente corruptos, pasando por algunas de las situaciones más descabelladas e increíbles." --p.[4] of cover.
