The explosive memoir of legendary DEA agents and the subjects of the hit Netflix series Narcos, Steve Murphy and Javier F. Peña. 

In the decades they spent at the DEA, Javier Peña and Steve Murphy risked their lives hunting large and small drug traffickers. 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 fictional account of their hunt for Escobar. 

Now, for the first time ever, they tell the real story of how they brought down the world's first narco-terrorist, the challenges they faced, and the innovative strategies they employed to successfully end the reign of terror of the world's most wanted criminal.  

Listeners will go 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, Steve and Javier 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 who was thought by many to be untouchable. Their firsthand experience coupled with stories from the DEA's recently declassified files on the search for Escobar forms the beating heart of Manhunters, an epic account of how agents risked everything to capture the world's most wanted man.

Mehr eine Biographie Murphy/Pena als zu Pablo

Ich bin von dem Buch etwas enttäuscht. Das Buch hat eine Laufzeit von 9 Stunden, davon geht es allerdings in der ersten vier ausschließlich darum, was Murphy und Pena in ihrer Zeit vor Kolumbien gemacht haben. Das ist ehrlicherweise nicht besonders spannend. In dem Teil zu Pablo Escobar erfährt man wenig, was man nicht schon aus der Narcos Serie (Netflix) kennt. Gefühlt wird das alles auch nur sehr oberflächlich erzählt. M.a.W. wenn man die Serie kennt, ist der Erkenntnisgewinn sehr gering. Keine Empfehlung.
