Cartel Wives: A True Story of Deadly Decisions, Steadfast Love, and Bringing Down El Chapo

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Mia Flores

Narrated By: Joy Nash

Publisher: Hachette Book Group USA

Duration: 12 hours 33 minutes

Language: Spanish


An astonishing, revelatory, and redemptive memoir from two women who escaped the international drug trade, with never-before-revealed details about El Chapo, the Sinaloa Cartel, and the dangerous world of illicit drugs.

Olivia and Mia Flores are married to the highest level drug traffickers ever to become US informants. Their husbands worked with--and then brought down--El Chapo, as well as dozens of high-level members of the Mexican cartels. They had everything money could buy: luxury cars, huge houses, and expensive jewelry--but they chose to give it all up when they cooperated with the US government. They knew that life was about more than wealth; it was about love, family, and doing what's right. CARTEL WIVES is a love story, a "Married to the Mob" story, an insider's look into the terrifying but high-flying empire of the new world of drugs, and, finally, the story of a major DEA and FBI operation.

    A great book. I couldn't stop listening until the end. A true love story. Very touching.

    I liked the book. It was a bit complicated at first following all the characters they mentioned.....but once you get going with the story it was very interesting.

    This book is awful. The beginning of this audio book. is the worst. Having to hear about two woman and their habitual bad decisions. Over and over. Had me thinking I wish I could get a refund.
