Joaquín El Chapo Guzmán is one of the highest-profile narco-terrorists the world has ever seen. Beginning work aged nine as a farmhand harvesting opium, El Chapo rose to the leadership of the Sinaloa Cartel. In 2009, he made the Forbes annual billionaires list and by 2013 he was named Public Enemy Number One.

This gripping account retells the story of his life crimes, imprisonments and multiple prison escapes. It tells the remarkable tale of El Chapo\'s arrest in Guatemala in 1993, how he continued to run his cartel from his cell in a Mexican jail and his subsequent escape in a prison laundry cart, along with his recapture and ultimate extradition to the US for the Trial of the Century.

Featuring chilling photographs of El Chapo and his associates, this book gives you the inside track on the dog-eat-dog world of international drugs trafficking.
