Summary
Virginia Vallejo: Top Colombian television journalist, cover model and socialite. Pablo Escobar: Head of the Medellin cartel, the founder of the global cocaine industry and one of the most ambitious - and brutal - criminals in history. Over the course of their tempestuous love affair, Vallejo witnessed first-hand the bloodshed, fear and corruption that accompanied the rise of Escobar's crime empire. In this explosive tale of drugs, sex, wealth and violence, Vallejo describes the man she knew and loved. But by the end of their dramatic five-year romance, increasingly plagued by threats of kidnap and death for her knowledge on Escobar's ties to the political establishment, Vallejo would fear for her life - forced to give up her career as a TV anchorwoman and cover model and flee Colombia for the United States. Her testimony would reopen one of the most important criminal cases in Colombian history. Loving Pablo, Hating Escobar tracks the birth and boom of the cocaine industry and follows Escobar's evolution from billionaire benefactor to ruthless terrorist, responsible for the historic tragedies that forever altered the course of the Colombia conflict and its relationship with the world
