Roberto's portrait of his brother is an important corrective' -- Misha Glenny, The Sunday Times 'More eye-opening than a line of coke' -- Melanie McGrath, Evening Standard 'Escobar led such an extraordinary life that the narrative is always absorbing.' -- Independent 'Authoritative ... remarkable.' -- Daily Express
