“Finally, the definitive book about Escobar, original and up-to-date”
– UNILAD, Joseph Loftus
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 1000-page book reveals everything about the king of cocaine.
Mostly translated from Spanish, Part 2 contains stories untold in the English-speaking world, including:
How Pablo’s craving for a teen volleyball player caused his brother-in-law’s death.
How half of the Medellín Cartel’s big bosses fell.
The fate of the survivors of the Palace of Justice attack.
The state’s role in the death of the popular presidential candidate Galán.

Shaun is a speaker, author and activist based in London, who is banned from America for life. As an inmate in Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s jail, he used a tiny pencil sharpened on a cell door to write the first prison blog, Jon’s Jail Journal.
His writing, smuggled out of the jail with the highest rate of death in America, turned the international media spotlight on the conditions: dead rats in the food, cockroaches crawling in his ears at night, murders by guards and gang members.
