When Jon Roberts was seven years old, after another motorist cut off his Mafioso father, his dad pulled over and shot the guy. That unpunished crime taught Jon a lesson: "Evil is stronger than good." Not surprisingly, the young man embarked on a career of crime. When apprehended for kidnapped and attempted murder, he found a logical escape path: He volunteered for service in Vietnam and joined an assassination squad. After that slight detour, he resumed his life as a bad boy, eventually becoming a key member of the Medellin cocaine cartel. Three years of conversations convinced veteran journalist and author Evan Wright (Generation Kill) that Roberts was more than the superstar criminal of Cocaine Cowboys; he was a super criminal with a unique story.
