“Todd Miller has entered a secret world, and he has gone deep. If you want to learn about the Border Patrol’s world, you will find this book informative and startling. I’m not sure the Border Patrol will like all that he has to say. But his is a moral work that wrestles with a huge story. Powerful.”

–Luis Alberto Urrea, author of The Devil’s Highway: A True Story
