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.

This is a great read and I enjoy this sort of book.
The different literary techniques that were presented throughout the book enhanced the story line and the added details made it very interesting.
In Mark Bowden's latest book he recreates the hunt for Pablo Escobar, the ruthless leader of the infamous Medellin cocaine cartel.

I have read many articles about Pablo being a former police officer. The book was interesting to a point. The first part of the book was VERY SLOW and did not hold my interest. Read morePublished 22 days ago by Charles W Salvatore
Worthwhile read, would've rated it a 4 but felt that it got lost in the names of people rather than expanding on their historical character.Published 25 days ago by lau
