              The explosive memoir of the two legendary drug enforcement agents responsible for taking down Pablo Escobar and the subject of the hit Netflix series `Narcos'. Javier Pena and Steve Murphy risked their lives hunting large and small drug traffickers in the decades they spent worki...ng for the US Drug Enforcement Administration. But their biggest challenge was the hunt for Pablo Escobar in Colombia. The partners, who began their careers as small-town cops, have been immortalised in Netflix's `Narcos', a fictionalised account of their hunt for Escobar. Now, for the first time, they tell the real story of how they brought down the world's first narco-terrorist and ended the reign of terror of the world's most wanted criminal. Manhunters takes you deep inside the inner workings of the Search Bloc, the joint Colombian-US task force that resulted in an intensive 18-month operation that tracked Escobar. Between July 1992 and December 1993, Pena and Murphy lived on the edge, setting up camp in Medellin at the Carlos Holguin Military Academy. There, they lived and worked with the Colombian authorities, hunting down a man thought to be untouchable. Their terrifying first-hand experience coupled with stories from the DEA's de-classified files on the search for Escobar forms the beating heart of Manhunters, a gripping account of how two determined and courageous agents risked everything to capture the world's most wanted man.

              For the first time, legendary DEA operatives Steve Murphy and Javier F. Pena tell the true story of how they helped put an end to one of the world's most infamous narco-terrorists in Manhunters: How We Took Down Pablo Escobar--the subject of the hit Netflix series, Narcos. Colomb...ian drug lord Pablo Escobar's brutal Medellin Cartel was responsible for trafficking tons of cocaine to North America and Europe in the 1980s and '90s. The nation became a warzone as his sicarios mercilessly murdered thousands of people--competitors, police, and civilians--to ensure he remained Colombia's reigning kingpin. With billions in personal income, Pablo Escobar bought off politicians and lawmen, and became a hero to poorer communities by building houses and sports centers. He was nearly untouchable despite the efforts of the Colombian National Police to bring him to justice. But Escobar was also one of America's most wanted, and the Drug Enforcement Administration was determined to see him pay for his crimes. Agents Steve Murphy and Javier F. Pena were assigned to the Bloque de Busqueda, the joint Colombian-U.S. taskforce created to end Escobar's reign of terror. For eighteen months, between July 1992 and December 1993, Steve and Javier lived and worked beside Colombian authorities, finding themselves in the crosshairs of sicarios targeting them for the $300,000 bounty Escobar placed on each of their heads. Undeterred, they risked the dangers, relentlessly and ruthlessly separating the drug lord from his resources and allies, and tearing apart his empire, leaving him underground and on the run from enemies on both sides of the law. Manhunters presents Steve and Javier's history in law enforcement from their rigorous physical training and their early DEA assignments in Miami and Austin to the Escobar mission in Medellin, Colombia--living far from home and serving as frontline soldiers in the never ending war on drugs that continues to devastate America.
