So far i'm half way via reading it but if this story is true, it's just a pity the man dealt in what is regarded as " illicit material" to make his fortune.
But the story tells another story just the same, we all pay massive amounts of money to local and national Governments and wander why and how it is being spent but this so-called criminal done a massive amount of "goodwill?!" with the money he raked in.
But yes, there is the other side of the story, the misery caused by Drugs in every day life, If he sold the drug to Pharmaceutical companies, would he still have made his fortune or would the Columbian "Government" creamed off most of it with massive tax demands??

It is a well written book. It would have been 5 stars if only the story is not so 'wrong'. A drug trafficker's bigger brother thinks 'he did nothing wrong' and yet pursued by the government. Who is he kidding? Through out the book, Roberts seems to think that selling drug is ok. He were the Robin Hood of Columbia. I bet hitler thinks he is doing the good so are isis etc...
