Advanced Praise for At the Devil’s Table:

“A fast-paced, heart-racing nonfiction thriller.”—Kirkus Reviews

“In this powerful and riveting work of nonfiction, William Rempel demonstrates the virtues of investigative reporting. Gaining access to the figure that could—and indeed did—spill the secrets that brought down a cartel, Rempel has an extraordinary story to tell. He not only takes the reader inside the hidden world of the drug cartels. He also provides a fascinating character study of a man who must answer a simple harrowing question: Should he risk his life in order to save his soul, or should he keep a pact with the devil?”—David Grann, author of The Lost City of Z

“Bill Rempel has earned his reputation as one of America’s finest investigative reporters the old fashioned way — by getting people to tell him explosive stories they won’t talk about with anyone else. At the Devil’s Table brings Rempel’s skills to the fore as never before, revealing the graphic details of Colombia’s bloody drug wars from the ultimate insider. By the end, you realize that the biggest mystery is how Jorge Salcedo stayed alive long enough to tell Rempel about his amazing life.”—James Risen, author of State of War: The Secret History of the CIA and the Bush Administration

“This fast-paced, beautifully crafted piece of storytelling is filled with unexpected twists and genuine humanity. Rempel weaves extraordinary access to the ruthless world of the drug cartels into a gripping and elegant work of true crime and redemption. In the hands of a masterful reporter and storyteller, even readers familiar with the forbidden realms of traffickers are in for a thrill-ride of surprises with some of the most intriguing characters in non-fiction.”—Douglas Frantz, federal investigator and co-author of The Nuclear Jihadist and Fallout
