Just me.

there are 2 errors in the title of this book. One is just an irritating spelling error, the other totally changes the drama promised by the subject headings:

Local call number :364.17 W832L
Personal Author :Wolff, Kay.
Title :The last run : an American woman's years inside a Colombian rug family-and her dramtic escape / Kay Wolff and Sybil Taylor.
Subject term :Narcotics dealers--United States--Biography.
Subject term :Narcotics dealers--Colombia--Case studies.
Subject term :Drug traffic--Colombia--Case studies.
Subject term :Drug traffic--United States--Case studies.
Subject term :Cocaine industry--Colombia--Case studies.

Only way it could be better is if they changed "Colombia" to "Columbia".

So are you going to change the subject terms or the title?

Rug dealers--United States--Biography

neither....

..this book is a candidate for discard, in that no one's read it in 5 years and it got fair to poor reviews. so in a few days, that rug-addled catalog record will disappear!

oh and instead of "rug dealers", looks like the proper term is "rug and carpet industry":
