I just finished the book and wow. The author’s description of the prison system is so raw and authentic that you feel every moment with him.

It was not a book bu expected to like when I picked it up but it was a book I could not put down.

Whether you are familiar with the story or not you will be overwhelmed by Warrens honesty. A true testament of how the love and support of our family can get us through the hardest of times. When you are done reading the book, look around, be thankful and embrace every one you love.

Andie Stelman (age 16) sobbing uncontrollably on the phone from Miami International Airport: "Daddy!!! Three FBI agents met us when we got off the plane. They told Mommy she's under arrest. They left me here all alone. I'm so scared. What do I do? What's going to happen to Mom? Why was she arrested, Daddy? What did she do wrong?"
Warren Stelman (to himself) from Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic: "My worst fears are confirmed. They fucking got us! Oh My God!"

Even though I got this book during a time I was unexpectedly busy I had to carve out time every day to read Gorilla Tango! I just could not put it down.
It was a compelling read about how life can take a really bad turn for regular people-your friend, neighbor-with the wrong set of circumstances.
Great read and I highly recommend it!

This is long overdue. The author does a very good job painting a picture of the events and what followed. A biography which made some thoughts run through my mind. This is a book I will definitely read again someday.

This was a really powerful story. I appreciated Warren's honesty and vulnerability in sharing his experiences in the US prison system. I like that he didn't make excuses for his past, and instead worked hard to make changes and move forward. I had tears in my eyes by the end!
