Pablo Escobar, the Colombian drug lord, has to have been one of the most successful criminals who ever lived. He grew so rich that he could affect elections and paralyze or corrupt almost any law enforcement agency that moved against him. When caught at something he couldn't murder or bribe his way out of, he made a deal to build, stock, and staff his own "prison" on his own property on a site of his own choosing and was furious when forced to "escape." Mark Bowden marshals the details of this amazing tale with his usual narrative skill, and Pete Bradbury does the text complete justice. B.G.
