THE INTERNATIONAL BEST SELLER!
Until now, we believed that everything had been said about the rise and fall of Pablo Escobar, the most infamous drug kingpin of all time, but these versions have always been told from the outside, never from the intimacy of his own home.
More than two decades after the full-fledged manhunt finally caught up with the king of cocaine, Juan Pablo Escobar travels to the past to reveal an unabridged version of his father—a man capable of committing the most extreme acts of cruelty while simultaneously professing infinite love for his family.
This is not the story of a child seeking redemption for his father, but a shocking look at the consequences of violence and the overwhelming need for peace and forgiveness.

In The News
“While focusing largely on his father, Escobar also includes the grim repercussions the cartel boss’s career had on his family. The matter-of-fact prose serves the material well—when one’s daily life is a surreal blur of excess and danger, there’s no need for embellishment.”—Publishers Weekly
“Escobar writes earnestly … will satisfy curiosity regarding the tawdry reality of childhood within a criminal family.”—Kirkus
