A Reluctant Warrior written by Kelly Brooke Nicholls gives a rare insight to Colombia’s drug war and the impact on its citizens. Drug cartels are empires, monarchies built from the ground up. Dealers will protect their provinces no matter what. When Luzma’s brother Jair is kidnapped by Colombia’s most notorious drug cartel for knowing too much she doesn’t care who’s protecting anything. She’ll do anything to get her brother back. Based on real events and interviews with a number of victims Nicholls paints a vivid image of the struggle Colombians faced in the war that ravaged their streets and their homes.
