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.

The bad guys are at odds with each other, and the good guys take full advantage of that.
While not losing focus of the overall theme of the book, Bowden does a fantastic job familiarizing the reader with Colombian socio-political events.
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 1 month ago by Charles W Salvatore
