Finding Escobar’s Millions

Once the most wanted man on the planet, cartel kingpin Pablo Escobar buried his billion-dollar fortune all over Colombia. Legends say most of it has never been found. Two former CIA officers, armed with their skills and training, go on the hunt for the alleged hidden treasure in this all-new series.


Ben Smith was raised on a farm in Washington State in a large family. He enjoyed the work pursuing national security interests around the globe, but then he met a girl… He currently lives in New York City, where he is completing a science-fiction novel.

Doug Laux grew up in small-town Ohio as the son of a steelworker. Throughout his career, he completed warzone tours tracking al-Qaeda, Taliban, and ISIS terrorists across multiple countries. He currently lives in Key West where he is completing his dive master certification.
