Publisher's Summary

What began as an innocent love affair for one young woman, Marta Pea, in Costa Careyes, Mexico in 1969, sets in motion a series of events that spans the next 30 years.
This is the story of South American drug lords Antonio Espinoza and Javier Rodriguez, and their violent quest for power. In a sweeping family saga, we meet the women who love them and the children they vow to protect at any cost. With a complex web of interconnected families, this gritty novel delves into the lives of a power hungry clan, following the rise of their business, the destructive path of their torrid and erotic love affairs, and the struggle to balance intense greed with devout family loyalty.
Strong women face tragedies that test their will and their commitment to the men they passionately desire. As young girls grow into women, their traumatic pasts will drive their actions and force them to make gut-wrenching decisions. With murder, drug trafficking, dirty politics, illegal gambling, prostitution, obsessive love affairs, and family strife, The Cartel is a whirlwind in the vein of Mario Puzo's The Godfather.

That dude is crazy, this book was great!

If you could sum up The Cartel in three words, what would they be?

Has it all

Any additional comments?

Evidentally the previous review was by somebody who has nothing but negative things to look forward to in life. The narrator was awesome, even with her many spanish accents. I finished this audio book in record timing as I just couldnt wait to find out how things played out.
