Abstract

Kilo is not just another book about cocaine and drug cartels. It is
rather a vivid depiction of Colombia’s criminal psyche, and a
detailed record of the impact the 2016 peace deal between
the Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia – Ejercito del
Pueblo or FARC-EP, and the government of former President
Juan Manuel Santos had on to Colombia’s cocaine industry.
Never before had the issues of peace and cocaine been more
divisive yet intertwined in Colombia. Kilo’s examination of one
of the most turbulent chapters of Colombia’s history of drugs
and violence since the fall of the Medellin and Cali cartels, provides the much-needed perspective that battling the same
enemy for decades depletes.
