Review

Mrs Escobar

07 October 2019
Written by: Victoria Eugenia Henao
Review by: Dee Atkinson
Genre: Non-fiction

This is the story of Pablo Escobar, the infamous Columbian druglord and narcoterrorist.

It is a story from the inside, told from his partner of 16 years Victoria Eugenia Henao.

Victoria met Pablo when she was 13 and he was 23, eloped with him at age 15 and stayed with him for 16 years despite his infidelities and violence towards her.

She recounts an unwavering love for him despite it all and even though she disagreed with his decisions and his treatment of others she remained by his side.

This is an intriguing expose told from the perspective of someone who knew him better than anyone.

It's the closing chapter for lovers of the Netflix hit series, Narcos.
