Publisher's Summary

An astonishing, revelatory, and redemptive memoir from two women who escaped the international drug trade, with never-before-revealed details about El Chapo, the Sinaloa Cartel, and the dangerous world of illicit drugs.

Olivia and Mia Flores are married to the highest level drug traffickers ever to become US informants. Their husbands worked with - and then brought down - El Chapo as well as dozens of high-level members of the Mexican cartels. They had everything money could buy - luxury cars, huge houses, and expensive jewelry - but they chose to give it all up when they cooperated with the US government. They knew that life was about more than wealth; it was about love, family, and doing what's right. Cartel Wives is a love story, a "married to the mob" story, an insider's look into the terrifying but high-flying empire of the new world of drugs, and, finally, the story of a major DEA and FBI operation.

Terrible narration

The overall story was interesting enough to get me through the first chapter in which the narrators butchered the name of one of the biggest and most well known cartel leaders in Mexico. The awful Spanish continued throughout the audiobook. It was pretty shocking considering the story largely takes place in Mexico.

Good, entertaining read.

I didn't like that the narrators botched the spanish names, or that the narrator that did Mia's part did a horrible impression of the male voices! Overall I was engaged and entertained.

overall great but...

the story was great but I can't help but wish they were more creative about the person switch instead of saying their name after a long pause every switch off characters. especially when they were telling a continued story. Also felt they could did better than the terrible man voice faking.
