From Publishers Weekly:

In a riveting narrative based on their prize-winning series in the Miami Herald , Gugliotta and Leen expose in alarming, well-documented and vivid detail the estimated $8 billion-a-year Colombian cartel that controls 80% of the world's cocaine market. In their account, the complex hierarchy of the cartel directs an international operation that resembles and surpasses many multinational corporations in efficiency and sophisticated marketing techniques. Run by a small group of murderous young overlords, the organization has thousands of employees--from peasants and pilots to lawyers and hit-men. Initially, corrupt bank and government officials in Colombia favored the cartel's growth. However, this changed after the cartel's successful opposition to an extradition treaty between Colombia and the U.S., which involved a reign of terror against Colombian institutions. The extended activities of the cocaine barons in Central America have compromised U.S. national interests, the authors maintain, especially in the case of reported contra- cartel links and alleged drug trafficking by Panama's Noriega. Despite concerted law enforcement efforts, the cartel still thrives. Major ad/promo.

From Library Journal:

In what is the most gripping, complete account yet of this powerful cocaine cartel, the authors, Miami Herald reporters, have painted an incisive and shocking picture of the men and money involved. The lives and characters of the drug lords are thoroughly explored, including the trial of Carlos Lehder, who recently became the first Cartel leader to be sentenced to prison in the United States. Even those libraries with Paul Eddy's The Cocaine Wars: Murder, Money, Corruption, and the World's Most Valuable Commodity ( LJ 7/88) and Elaine Shannon's Desperadoes: Latin Drug Lords, U.S. Lawmen, and the War America Can't Win ( LJ 11/15/88) should purchase this. Highly recommended.
