Who is the man behind “El Chapo”? Andrés López can answer that question as both an expert in narcotrafficking and as a fearsome former drug dealer himself.     López offers us a topical story of intrigue and revenge, inspired in the life of “El Chapo” Guzmán: his childhood, his obsessions, the alliances that allowed for his incredible rise in the drug world. Based on extensive research and written with great skill, this is a fascinating portrait of one of the most terrifying figures in narcotrafficking worldwide.   As a former member of the Cartel del Norte, López has written other books on this topic, like El Cartel de los Sapos ,which became a bestseller and was the basis of the television series “El Cartel,” which was the TV event of the year.
