Publisher's Summary

A blend of Manhunt, Killing Pablo, and Zero Dark Thirty, Andrew Hogan and Douglas Century's sensational investigative high-tech thriller - soon to be a major motion picture from Sony - chronicles a riveting chapter in the 20th-century drug wars: the exclusive inside story of the American lawman and his dangerous eight-year hunt that captured El Chapo - the world's most wanted drug kingpin who evaded the law for more than a decade. 

Every generation has a larger-than-life criminal: Jesse James, Billy the Kid, John Dillinger, Al Capone, John Gotti, Pablo Escobar. But each of these notorious lawbreakers had a "white hat" in pursuit: Wyatt Earp, Pat Garrett, Eliot Ness, Steve Murphy. For notorious drug lord Joaquín Archivaldo Guzmán-Loera - El Chapo - that lawman is former Drug Enforcement Administration Special Agent Andrew Hogan. 

In 2006, fresh out of the DEA Academy, Hogan heads west to Arizona, where he immediately plunges into a series of gripping undercover adventures, all unknowingly placing him on the trail of Guzmán, the leader of the Sinaloa Cartel, a Forbes billionaire, and public enemy number one in the United States. Six years later, as head of the DEA's Sinaloa Cartel desk in Mexico City, Hogan finds his life and Chapo's are, ironically, on parallel paths: They're both obsessed with the details. 

In a recasting of the classic American Western on the global stage, Hunting El Chapo takes us on Hogan's quest to achieve the seemingly impossible, from infiltrating El Chapo's inner circle to leading a white-knuckle manhunt with an elite brigade of trusted Mexican marines - racing door to door through the cartel's stronghold and ultimately bringing the elusive and murderous kingpin to justice. 

This cinematic crime story following the relentless investigative work of Hogan and his team unfolds at breakneck speed, taking the listener behind the scenes of one of the most sophisticated and dangerous counternarcotics operations in the history of the United States and Mexico.

honest, but poorly written

I understand that this book was a story of how a dea agent caught Chapo. This isn't a Chapo biography. I thought that I would get a better understanding of Chapo after listening to the book, but I didn't. Throughout the book he continues to state all the info he gets on Chapo, which are from wire taps. If he has all this info on Chapo,....tell us about Chapo...if he went into more detail about Chapos day to day life, I think the book would have been better.. how many calls does he make a day..? how much money does he make a day..?how does he engineer his empire..? what countries does he operate in..? does he drink..? does he use drugs..? which drugs, if so..? does he have parties everyday..? I understand that a dea agent wrote this book, I wasn't expecting Shakespeare, but I don't know much more about Chapo, than before I heard the book..

Loved everything about it

Narration was great and the story.... wow! I couldn't stop listening. I didn't know much about this drug cartel leader until listening to this book so I didn't know how it ended. Does he live or not? Escape or not? It wasn't until the very end that my memory was jogged with some of the news headlines I had briefly read last year. Needless to say, reading this was like reading a suspense novel. I was practically on the edge of my seat. Great story and great work by all involved.

What’s up Chapo!!!!!

Bravo bravo!!! Thrilling and chilling! Bad ass DEA agent Drew Hogan masterminds the pursuit and capture of “the shorty.” The action is fast paced, and the narrator nails it. I’ve already bought this book for my brother. It makes me proud to be an American knowing that law men like this put it all on the line for our safety and our kids safety!!! Stop reading and start listening you won’t regret it.

Fantastic narration of a thrilling true story

This is one you won’t want to miss! With all the intensity of a thriller, Hogan recounts the true story of how he played an integral role in the takedown of the biggest drug cartels in Mexico. Fass narrated with excellent pronunciation of the Spanish sections, great tone, and an easy to listen to cadence. If you’re looking for an interesting story that hooks you from the beginning, get this one today!

very interesting

I really enjoyed this book I do wish it had his last capture in more detail but I don't think the United States was overly involved in that one. But this story was very interesting the writer didn't make it seem like he did everything like some authors tend to do. If the Mexican drug cartels and things of that nature are interesting to you I think you would find this book very entertaining.

What's Up El Chapo!

Great listen! Good narration and I especially enjoyed hearing from the author at the beginning and end. True Crime at its best… right from the source.
This book had the twists and turns for me because I wasn’t that familiar with El Chapo’s story. Thanks to the bazaar scenarios that went down, there are some truly funny moments that I did not expect. Hogan’s sense of humor comes out in some priceless quotes and details. He’s an author and lawman of a new generation, it’s refreshing and honest as hell.

Great book! Must read!

Great book. The detail in the story is amazing. Lots of hard work was done by DEA special agent Hogan, HSI and the rest of the team to capture al Señor.
