Found it amazing that all of this was going on during this time. All I could think of was episodes of Miami Vice when I was reading this, it's hard to believe these things really happened. Not as much about US Special Forces as I was looking for, but it was a good book.
This book is a very well-written, gripping account of not only the hunt for the "world's greatest outlaw" but also of the horrifying climate in Columbia created by the drug trade.
It would be a great read for those who like thrillers, mysteries, action novels and even history buffs, as the author sets up the book nicely with a succinct history of the troubled South American nation.
This book also offers a fascinating window into the U.S. agencies involved in international policing, and details the paradigm shift initiated by the Bush administration toward engaging the U.S. military in its first battle in a drug war.
