    The world has watched stunned at the bloodshed in Mexico. Thirty thousand murdered since 2006; police chiefs shot within hours of taking office; mass graves comparable to those of civil wars; car bombs shattering storefronts; headless corpses heaped in town squares. The United States throws Black Hawk helicopters and drug agents at the problem. But in secret, Washington is confused and divided about what to do. "Who are these mysterious figures tearing Mexico apart?" they wonder.

    Kathy says: "A NOBY Nominee"
    "Good book, not so good narration."

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Narrator difficult to follow..sentences start boldly and end in a whisper. Is he trying to add some drama with this tactic?


    What was one of the most memorable moments of El Narco?

    The introduction, if I had been able to folllow the narrator.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Difficult to hear because of the modulation changes in his voice. I have listened to many Audible books and never have experienced such poor quality.


    What character would you cut from El Narco?

    It is hard to say, I quit trying to listen to the book at the end of chapter 2.
