Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Mass market edition of an acclaimed account of the kidnapping in Colombia of several older women by Pablo Escobar's Medellin drugs cartel. "News Of A Kidnapping" is a powerful and brave piece of reporting, which is every bit as gripping as one of Marquez's fictional works. Before writing classics such as "One Hundred Years Of Solitude" and "Love In The Time Of Cholera", he was a reporter in Colombia, then a foreign correspondent.

Synopsis:

This text narrates the kidnapping of Maruja, a well-connected journalist in her 50s living in Botoga, and of her sister-in-law, Beatriz, by the gangs run by Pablo Escobar, head of the Medellin drug cartel, and one of the richest men in the world.
