Coming To Your Local Bookstore: ‘El Chapo’ Biography

The biography of the most wanted Mexican drug lord, Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman, written by journalist Malcolm Beith is now available at your local bookstores.  The biography details El Chapo’s beginnings in Sinaloa to his rise as one of Mexico’s most well known drug lords.

The book titled, “The Last Narco: Hunting El Chapo” was originally published by Penguin in England and is now available in the U.S.  Many know about Guzman’s Sinaloa cartel but little about the brains behind it.  His illegal feats and business empire is impressive for a man that started as an illiterate opium poppy grower.  He is also Forbes’ #41 most powerful person in the world with an estimated net worth of $20 billion. 

The author is a Newsweek investigative journalist based in Mexico City.
