User reviews about the book
This books is as addictive as the cocaine the figures it discusses pushed.
The subject is fascinating, the storytelling is engaging, and the book is well-organized along a generally chronological order.
I simply could not put this book down. I like books on the drug wars and have read several of them. This one is easily the best.
The book was written a number of years ago before the Medellin Cartel was finally brought down. It would have been interesting to read the authors' detailed and interesting treatment of the final years of the Cartel and Pablo Escobar and other related figures. This is not to the detriment of the book. It is fascinating for what it is.
If you are at all interested in the Colombia cocaine era then read this book before any others.
