Over the coming days and weeks, the United States launched a joint military and intelligence operation with the Colombian government, assembling a team of expert personnel and an arsenal of state-of-the-art weaponry and surveillance technology the likes of which the world had never seen. Their mission: to track down Pablo.
But this time, they knew it would not be enough to just capture Escobar. This time, they would have to finish the job. This time, they were going to kill him.

It is impossible to verify the facts surrounding the hunt and killing of Escobar, so I am not sure how accurate it is. But this is as good as a nonfiction can ever be written
the abridged version is OK but would have perfered the full book instead. I wonder why it isn't available on Audible?
It might just be because I listened to the book on audible, but I had a tough time with the names. I felt like there was a new name mentioned every other minute, and I didn't know if the name would become important, or if it was just a passing reference. Despite this, I still loved the story and got a good sense of who Pablo was. Very much recommend!
killing pablo is very good detailed look at the history of pablo escobar, his evil cartel and the enviroment in meddellin back in the day. it is well written and easily comprehended. this audio book helped make my commute for the week very easy as i would arrive at my location and sit in the car wanting more.
the author explains how pablo thrived in the perfect environment in colombia at the time to become the most famous and ruthless crime boss ever.
