    In 2008 veteran journalist Evan Wright, acclaimed for his New York Times best-selling book Generation Kill and co-writer of the Emmy-winning HBO series it spawned, began a series of conversations with super-criminal Jon Roberts, star of the fabulously successful documentary Cocaine Cowboys. Those conversations would last three years, during which time Wright came to realize that Roberts was much more than the de-facto “transportation chief” of the Medellin Cartel during the 1980s, much more than a facilitator of a national drug epidemic.

    What made the experience of listening to American Desperado the most enjoyable?

    This was a great read due to my love of the crime genre and the honesty that the author portrays. The witness accounts does a great job of telling both sides of the story whether it conflicts with the authors side or not


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Helllllooooo!!!! Jon Roberts! He lived an amazing life and seemed like he was as rational as one can be in the life he chose to live.


    Which character – as performed by Mark Bramhall – was your favorite?

    Jon Roberts! He sounded like the same narrator from Goodfellas to me. I don't think it was Ray Liota but he was the voice of him in that movie.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    American Desperado says it all.

  • Don't Know Much About History: Everything You Need to Know About American History

    When Don't Know Much About History first appeared, it created a sensation. With humor, great stories, and a trademark conversational style, the audiobook brought Americans a fresh new take on history. Davis proved that Americans don't hate history - they just hate the dull textbook version they were force-fed in school.

    Tom says: "Great listen. Great information."
    "Very informative and factual"

    It's obvious that the southern/conferate biased people on here who dont like this book, hate to hear the truth. Nonetheless, it's all history...lol
