Killing Pablo by Mark Bowden

Written by commonsensejournal on May 13th, 2006

buy the book from amazon.comI read Killing Pablo by Mark Bowden, it’s a pretty interesting book but not as well-written as Black Hawk Down in my opinion, also my Mark Bowden. It successfully illustrates how out of control Columbia was when drug kingpin Pablo Escobar was running the country by way of threats against the media, politicians and judges, turning the country into an all-out guerilla war zone. Sadly hundreds of people lost their lives; this book recreates the chaos of that war-torn country during that period.
