The True Story of Pablo Escobar

Former DEA Special Agents Steve Murphy and Javier Peña were at the center of the largest, most complex and high-profile investigation of its time. With tactful humor and rarely seen visuals, Steve and Javier share their experiences in hostile and often life-threatening conditions—all leading to the capture and downfall of the world’s first narco-terrorist, Pablo Escobar.
