The extraordinary story of the richest and most violent gangster in history-his youth, his bid for political power, his domination of the world's cocaine trade, his campaign against the Colombian state during which thousands died, his imprisonment in a luxurious private jail, his escape, and his eventual capture and shooting-is told in hundreds of photographs gathered by photographer James Mollison in Colombia. The book contains illuminating interviews with family members, other gangsters, Colombian police and judges, and survivors of Escobar's killing sprees. It is both a compelling picture story and a landmark in visual journalism.
