    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"
    "Very informative"

    If you could sum up El Narco in three words, what would they be?

    I never knew all this went on.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    There wasn't any one main character in this particular book.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    The narrator could have added some inflection to his reading and I think his pauses were a little bit too long.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No.
