Journalist Mark Bowden presents a short biography of Colombian drug kingpin Pablo Escobar and tells the story of his pursuit by the Colombian and U.S. governments. Bowden reads this abridgment well. As the author, he understands the pace of the events described, and reads, overall, appropriately. Much of this book focuses on the chase, calling for a more rapid pace, and Bowden never leaves the listener hanging. Anyone interested in drug policy, Latin American politics, or law enforcement will find this book informative. M.L.C. (c) AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/ JAN 02]
