Pablo Escobar and the Medellâin drug cartel formed the greatest criminal empire of all time. At its peak, in the 1980s, Forbes pegged the Escobar fortune at a cool $6 billion. Pablo's older brother Roberto, the author of this book, says that actually the Escobars were worth far more than that. (He notes, for instance, that the family was trafficking so much cocaine that they spent $1,000 a week just on rubber bands to hold together their bundles of cash.) Here he offers far more than diverting contrabandtrivia, presenting us with an insider's view of a murderous enterprise that outflanked governments on several continents. One of the most astonishing true crime books of the decade.--From publisher description.

About the Author:

Roberto Escobar resides in Colombia. Under the rules of his parole, he cannot leave the country.

From AudioFile:

Drug-cartel leader Pablo Escobar earned so many billions from his cocaine sales to the U.S. and Europe that $2,500 per month was spent on rubber bands to hold the bundles together. His brother and accountant, Roberto, describes how Pablo invented the production, smuggling, and distribution of the white powder to become the seventh-richest man in the world. Narrator Ruben Diaz's bilingual skills allow him fluency with the mixture of English and many Spanish names, phrases, and locations. His English has a hint of a Latin accent, adding a linguistic authenticity to the story of a simple Colombian man who loved his family, killed his enemies, and lived in the shadows. Pablo Escobar's legacy of corruption and crime still haunts much of Latin America. J.A.H. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
