Author: Virginia Vallejo

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 de-scribes the man she knew and loved. But, increasingly plagued by threats of kidnap and death for her knowledge on Escobar’s ties to the political establishment, Vallejo sought extradition to the United States. Her testimony would reo-pen one of the most important criminal cases in Colombian history.
