Publisher's Summary

Snatched is the electric tale by the New York Times best-selling author of Blow, Bruce Porter, that tells the true story of a woman caught between two worlds, with her life dangling in the balance.

Raised an aristocrat in Colombia and educated in European schools, Pilar transfixes everyone with her charm and her guile. She also falls for dangerous men and finds herself drawn into the highest levels of the cocaine trade.

After two failed marriages and a harrowing escape from the drug life, she settles down to a quiet existence in Florida with her children - until her second husband tries to cut short his prison term by giving her name over to members of a new task force being formed by the DEA. They induce Pilar, now a middle-aged woman, to infiltrate the Cali cartel as the head of a vast money-laundering sting.

Named Operation Princess, the scheme leads to the seizure of tens of millions of dollars along with some $500 million worth of cocaine and the exposure of hundreds of high-level traffickers, becoming one of the most daring and successful stings in DEA history.

But Pilar plays her part too well. Her success as a money launderer gets her kidnapped and then ransomed by a band of guerrillas in South America - and the United States government refuses to negotiate. It's left to her low-level handlers in the DEA to get her back before her kidnappers discover they have a federal agent in their clutches.

    "Watch a waste of a good title and tagline."
    What disappointed you about Snatched?

    It was completely disjointed. You could not follow the characters, nor was there character development. The "heroine" was pathetic and, despite the attempt, held no true depth. It went into minutia that was boring and could have been skipped and the bigger story, taht could have been interesting (I think) was somewhere in between. I never do this, but I quite after giving the book ten hours because it was that bad.

    "Started out interesting"

    ... But became really really boring towards the end. In the beginning I could overlook the terrible narration bc it was an interesting book, but when it got repetitive mundane I had to stop listening. Maybe better in print?
