Anyone who remembers Pablo Escobar and the drug cartel he ran out of Cali, Colombia, in the 1990s will know that this is a man who was ruthless and homicidal. This book is the story of how an ordinary citizen risked his life for his country by infiltrating the cartel and eventually bringing it down. Billed as nonfiction, the story reads like a thriller, with twists and turns along the way. Narrator Fred Sanders is up to the task of leading us through this heart-stopper. His deep voice and bilingual delivery are controlled and assured, and he moves the story along with slight characterizations and a lively pace. He allows himself some excitement during the tense scenes, but he doesn’t let the book get ahead of him. R.I.G. © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2011]
