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.

A darn-tootin good Audible book!
Attwood keeps the story flowing, interesting and suspenseful. I learned a lot of interesting knowledge.
He branches out realistically in different voices for the various characters, I believe he was a great choice as a narrator
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.
This is another win for Shaun Attwood and I recommend it!
