Each chapter had me gripped from start to end. The characters were well-developed, and I particularly enjoyed the descriptions of the elite hostages Pablo kidnapped, and the priest Father Garcia, who brokered Pablo’s deal to surrender himself to the prison he built for himself called the Cathedral.
The sickening violence associated with the black market in cocaine will never end until our futile drug laws are revised. The Mexican cartels are a prime example. That’s why this book has particular relevance for this day and age.
The book is not entirely about Pablo Escobar. It delves into the origin, history, and usage of cocaine. The involvement of big pharma companies in developing and promoting cocaine. The role of politicians such as HW Bush, his son Jeb Bush, General Manuel Noriega, etc. and the CIA, DEA, ATF, etc. in the trafficking of drugs into the US. The tracking down and killing of Pablo Escobar by those same agencies and the US military is an eye-opener.
The book explains the raise and the organizational structure of the Medellín and Cali cartels and the conflicts between them. The brutality and indiscriminate violence, death, and torture inflicted on those who crossed the path of the drug cartels and those trying to defeat them (paramilitary death squads, cops, military) is nothing more than sadistic and inhumane.
The book does make occasional reference to the NETFLIX series NARCOS to point out fact vs. fiction. I’ve never seen NARCOS so watching it before reading the book isn’t necessary. I am, however, planning to binge watch NARCOS since the book has gotten me interested in it.
I learned alot and now know the TRUE story of his rise/fall. I loved every page and was hooked from the first chapter. Shaun Attwood does a great job with this one... The whole series of these books I find so fascinating. I can't wait until Book 3 of his "War On Drugs" series is released. I own this one, American Made, and the Cali Cartel. All of which are tremendously written and truthful. This book and series gets a solid 10/10 from me. Definitely one I'll be reading again.
I grew up hearing his name and thinking that he was the real bad guy when all along, he was more like the rabbit in the hat. No one ever pulled a rabbit out of a hat without first putting the rabbit in there. You’ll be quite surprised, as I was, to find out who the magician really is. Well worth the read.
