Reviews

[A] fast-paced tale of the decadeslong quest to capture a notorious drug kingpin... Feuer builds a taut narrative of the cat-and-mouse game that found Guzmán...[and] he knows how to spin a tale. Fans of Don Winslow's fiction and Mark Bowden's nonfiction alike will be eager to read Feuer's blood-spattered tale. - Kirkus Reviews

El Chapo Guzmán was both a criminal and a celebrity -- something like Depression Era-gangsters Al Capone and John Dillinger.... New York Times reporter Alan Feuer, who covered Guzmán's 2019 drug trafficking trial, charts his rise from teenage smuggler to drug lord -- a mix of tall tales and brutal crimes.--San Antonio Express-News

Feuer's book draws on confidential sources and his experience covering El Chapo's 2019 trial as a criminal justice reporter for the New York Times to give us a definitive account of Guzman's life.--Omnivoracious, The Amazon Book Review
