Summary

Pablo Escobar was a mama's boy who cherished his family and sang in the shower, yet he bombed a passenger plane and formed a death squad that used genital electrocution.

Most Escobar biographies only provide a few pieces of the puzzle, but this action-packed audiobook reveals everything about the king of cocaine.

Mostly translated from Spanish, Part 1 contains stories untold in the English-speaking world, including:

  • The tragic death of his youngest brother Fernando.
  • The fate of his pregnant mistress.
  • The shocking details of his affair with a TV celebrity.
  • The presidential candidate who encouraged him to eliminate their rivals.
