Résumé

"The story of the greatest criminal Colombia has ever known: Pablo Escobar, a truly unique and ambivalent character. This book tells the story of Don Pablo, the world-renowned legend that, more than twenty years after his death, not only continues but is growing. At the head of the Medellín cartel, he was one of the main drug barons in the 1980s. Along with his image as public enemy no.1 for the Colombian and US governments, he was also seen as a sort of local Robin Hood, thanks to his real estate projects favoring the poor. He was also a political breakthrough, having succeeded in being elected as deputy leader of the Colombian liberal party, affiliated to Socialist International. From his surrender to the police to his murder in 1993 following his escape from prison, he was a symbolic character of a world where politics, business and corruption are increasingly linked."

At the height of his career, the Columbian kingpin was making one million dollars a day smuggling cocaine into the U.S. Here is the tale of El Patrón, folk hero to some, public enemy number one to others, doting father and family man, ruthless murderer and an outlaw like no other. In part one, he surrenders to authorities and is "incarcerated" at La Catedral, where he enjoys the good life while frustrated U.S. intelligence agents plot to bring him down.
