Publisher's Summary

An electrifying account of the Cali Cartel beyond its portrayal on Netflix.
From the ashes of Pablo Escobar's empire rose an even bigger and more malevolent cartel. A new breed of sophisticated mobsters became the kings of cocaine. Their leader was Gilberto Rodríguez Orejuela - known as the Chess Player due to his foresight and calculated cunning.
Gilberto and his terrifying brother, Miguel, ran a multi-billion-dollar drug empire like a corporation. They employed a politically astute brand of thuggery and spent $10 million to put a president in power. Although the godfathers from Cali preferred bribery over violence, their many loyal torturers and hit men were never idle.

AMAZING

What made the experience of listening to The Cali Cartel the most enjoyable?

Excellent up-to-date book about the Cali cartel that deconstructs the war on drugs, and is so gripping that you won’t want to put it down

A darn-tootin good Audible book!

What did you love best about The Cali Cartel?

Attwood keeps the story flowing, interesting and suspenseful. I learned a lot of interesting knowledge.

What does John H Fehskens bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He branches out realistically in different voices for the various characters, I believe he was a great choice as a narrator

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, I can't exactly call it a "page turner", haha, but it took me less than two days to finish and I continued listening whenever I had the chance - in the car, at the gym, in cooking, laying in bed before falling asleep, ect.

Any additional comments?

This is another win for Shaun Attwood and I recommend it!

Eye opening

Extremely interesting book that draws you in slowly then completely amazes you. Filled with action and sometimes giving me goosebumps, it was shocking to hear everything in this book because whilst we know this is explains what has actually happened in the past, the dealings and the murders sound too extraordinary to not be fiction! Really good writing that pulls you in, I was upset that it had to end!

Narcos in depth

I have watched the Netflix series Narcos and so was very interested in listening to this audiobook. It did not disappoint. It was an in depth, obviously well researched and very well presented look at the drug cartels and all the major players. I highly recommend it to anyone with an interest in this subject. Well worth a listen!
