The mind-blowing true story of Pablo Escobar and the Medellín Cartel beyond their portrayal on Netflix.
Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar was a devoted family man and a psychopathic killer; a terrible enemy, yet a wonderful friend. While donating millions to the poor, he bombed and tortured his enemies - some had their eyeballs removed with hot spoons. Through ruthless cunning and America's insatiable appetite for cocaine, he became a multi-billionaire, who lived in a $100-million house with its own zoo.
Pablo Escobar: Beyond Narcos demolishes the standard good versus evil telling of his story. The authorities were not hunting Pablo down to stop his cocaine business. They were taking it over.
Shaun Attwood's War on Drugs trilogy - Pablo Escobar, American Made, and We Are Being Lied To - is a series of harrowing, action-packed and interlinked true stories that demonstrate the catastrophic consequences of drug prohibition.

Thoroughly enjoyed this book.
Cannot comment only heard the audio
I could not pick one moment in the book I found the whole book fascinating, his story is incredibly interesting, seeing the good the bad & the ugly side of this man.
All of it, the story unfolded in such a way that I couldn't wait to listen to the next chapter and have a better understanding how Pablo Escobar practically ruled a country
I was surprised that I felt a little sad when Pablo Escobar was finally killed, I don't condone any of the grotesque things that he did, but the book gives a good incite on how corrupt the US was and the Columbian government and how they mirrored a lot of the things that Pablo Escobar did but did not have to answer to anyone!!
I would strongly recommend this book, I found it totally fascinating. 10/10
