This is a very well written and well researched book into one of the drug cartels in Colombia and how one man reluctantly became head of Cali security and how he tried to escape from that life Along the way it also highlighted how cheap and scary life is there and illustrated for me how very lucky I am not to live in a country where drugs have totally changed the police force military and politics Although this book is easy to read because of the construction and excellent writing it is often difficult to read because of the maddening or awful things that happen because the cartels have such a strong hold on the country Jorge Salcedo was a very interesting person to watch while he progressed through the Cali cartel and tested his morals against the cartel decisions A very interesting instructive and fast read

The front cover of At the Devils Table doesn't do the book any favours as it looks like the kind of trashy novel you'd find in Poundland For the majority of the 300 hundred pages it's a half decent read I'm a fan of Narcos so I was anticipating an intriguing insight into the Cali Cartel the successors of Pablo Escobar's Medellin cartel It's always fascination to read about the ins and outs of a dark underworld like the drug trade but I don't feel At Devils Table delves far enough The book comes across as a surface skimmer with only a few scraps thrown at the reader and none of the gory details I wanted from a book like this I mean this guy was in the cartel so I really wanted full exposure but by the half way mark it was clear this was never going to happen The book becomes boring and a chore to get through I skimmed the last 50 or so pages The only good thing was it made me want to watch Narcos Season 3 which I've neglected since its release
