THIS IS THE NEW GODFATHER

Virginia Vallejo's memoir is MOVIELIKE! This is the story
of the most famous Colombian couple of all times, not some
product of investigative reporting or one of those apologies
dictated by hitmen to Colombian and American journalists who
paint Escobar as some Hollywood superhero. This woman WAS THERE,
in Pablo's arms, his ranch, his zoo, his jungle hidings, during
five years. she knew his presidents, accomplices, partners,
rivals, paramilitaries, rebels, rivals. After reading Aquel
Palacio en llamas one understands what is going on in Latin
America. and after seeing Virginia's pictures in her website I
understood why Escobar went to war for that woman.
FASCINATING BOOK!, E. Rac. (Florida)
This is an unconventional love story, and also one on
greed and power. Pablo Escobar didn't deserve Virginia Vallejo's
love and courage, of course. That monster was very smart to
choose her to write his biography. The story is filled with joy,
humor, political corruption, compassion and sense of History.
Great reading for both men and women!
