Description: From a Nobel laureate comes the international bestseller that carries us into the horrific world of Colombia's Medellin drug cartel

Consumed these past twenty years by a "biblical holocaust, Colombia has endured leftist insurgencies, right-wing death squads, currency collapses, cholera epidemics, and, most recently and corrosively, drug trafficking. Returning to his days as a reporter for El Espectador, Gabriel Garcia Marquez chronicles, with consummate skill, the period in late 1990 when Colombian security forces mounted a nationwide manhunt for Pablo Escobar, the ruthless and elusive head of the Medellin cartel. Ten men and women were abducted by Escobar's henchmen and used as bargaining chips against extradition to the United States. From the testimonies and diaries of the survivors, Garcia Marquez reconstructs their bizarre ordeal with cinematic intensity, breathtaking language, and rigor. We are drawn into a world that, like some phantasmagorical setting in a great Garcia Marquez novel, we can scarcely believe exists -- but that continually shocks us with its cold, hard reality.

"Fascinating .... Possesses all the drama and emotional resonance of Garcia Marquez's most powerful fiction". -- The New York Times

"A potent mixture of the news-hound's well-documented detail and the novelist's tragic vision". -- Chicago Tribune

"Classic Garcia Marquez .... It brings together the world's two best-known Colombians, symbolically locked in a struggle for their nation's soul". -- Time
