BORDER GUARD by Don Whitehead


Email this review


With a vivid historical sketch of the Service and on to a run-down on the lockade runners of the Civil War and the rum-runners of Prohibition days, the bulk of the book is devoted to the major contemporary problems: gold being smuggled out of the country, and narcotics, diamonds, watch movements, Parisian gowns, Italian when's wear, faked or stolen art, and pornographic or pirated books being smuggled . Each category is amply illustrated by true stories. Mr. Whitehead has a remarkable ability for making all of this material become fascinating reading.
