The bulk of Killing Pablo describes what happened when the U.S. government put its resources behind the hunt for Pablo. Bowden describes the search in gripping detail, from the massive electronic-surveillance effort to bureaucratic infighting between rival U.S. agencies. This is an outstanding work of reportorial journalism, too: in the epilogue, Bowden drops tantalizing hints that it was an American--not a Colombian--who delivered the killing shot to Pablo in 1993. Readers looking for a real-life thriller--or any kind of thriller, for that matter--won't do much better than Killing Pablo. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Realistic and unfortunately probably accurate. Reflective of the adverse widespread use of illicit drugs. Violence begets more violence and killings.Published 1 month ago by CEB
I started out reading this with no more knowledge than the fact that Pablo Escobar was a major drug cartel leader and he was killed at some point. Read morePublished 1 month ago by R. Patel
