Summary
"The explosive memoir of the two legendary drug enforcement agents responsible for taking down Pablo Escobar and the subject of the hit Netflix series ¿́¿Narcos¿́¿. Javier Pen¿¿a and Steve Murphy risked their lives hunting large and small drug traffickers in the decades they spent working for the US Drug Enforcement Administration. But their biggest challenge was the hunt for Pablo Escobar in Colombia. The partners, who began their careers as small-town cops, have been immortalised in Netflix¿́¿s ¿́¿Narcos¿́¿, a fictionalised account of their hunt for Escobar. Now, for the first time, they tell the real story of how they brought down the world¿́¿s first narco-terrorist and ended the reign of terror of the world¿́¿s most wanted criminal. Manhunters takes you deep inside the inner workings of the Search Bloc, the joint Colombian-US task force that resulted in an intensive 18-month operation that tracked Escobar. Between July 1992 and December 1993, Pen¿¿a and Murphy lived on the edge, setting up camp in Medellin at the Carlos Holguin Military Academy. There, they lived and worked with the Colombian authorities, hunting down a man thought to be untouchable. Their terrifying first-hand experience coupled with stories from the DEA¿́¿s de-classified files on the search for Escobar forms the beating heart of Manhunters, a gripping account of how two determined and courageous agents risked everything to capture the world's most wanted man." -- Back cover
