Here’s the book description:

The 2012 US Secret Service scandal in Cartagena, in which agents were caught partying with Colombian prostitutes, brought global attention to the sex tourism industry in Colombia and greater Latin America. Just months before that news story, Colin Post had shuttered a guide service for tourists looking to visit the red lights districts of Bogota, Colombia.

This is the story of that business, which brought gringos to ‘zonas de tolerancia’ – designated neighborhoods where prostitution and brothels are legal and tolerated. Those areas can be found in Chicó, Chapinero, and the infamous Santa Fe, each one catering to a different economic level. The story is full of cocaine and putas, of gringos and colombianas, of whoremongers and whorehouses, of strange fetishes and wild times with beer and aguardiente.

The story takes a twist as the Colombian government intimidates Post via the DAS, Colombia’s version of the FBI which has since been closed by President Juan Manuel Santos for corruption. And finally, the book tells the tale of another foreigner with an agency catering to sex tourism, Noah Goldberg of Medellin Paisa Tours, who was assassinated in Medellin shortly after the Cartagena scandal.

The book is a wild ride that gives an inside look into the sinful kinds of fun that can be had in Bogota, Colombia.

UPDATE 2014: Do not email me for Bogota Brothel Tours. I am completely out of the business and don’t even live in Colombia anymore. Here is a new Bogota brothel tour service you can contact instead of bothering me. Because I won’t even reply.

    Certainly an enjoyable read, but a little … short.

    I got the impression that you weren’t really interested in any of the people you dealt with while running BBT, so no characters really popped off the page. In fact, you seemed a little disinterested in the whole enterprise, which is probably why you didn’t have more to say.

    OTOH, the Noah Goldberg stuff was great. You seem to have a real knack for this … let’s call it “investigative journalism” thing, and you seem genuinely interested in the stuff you dig into.

    Enthusiasm isn’t everything, but it is something. Why did, say “The New Yankee Workshop” run for *20 years*? ‘Cause that SOB just loved screwing around with wood, or else did a great job faking it. People are drawn to people who genuinely love what they do.

    Looking forward to the Mick.

    Thank you Samuel and Twenty.

    Too short is a good problem to have I guess. Better than too long, too drawn out. I guess there weren’t many stories because the business didn’t last long.

    Twenty you’re 110% right I wasn’t interested in any aspect of the job. And you’re 120% right that Noah Goldberg absolutely fascinated me. I mean, an Ivy League educated guy playing gangster in a hardcore Mafia town like Medellin? Stranger than fiction.

    Twenty reviewed the book on his blog for those interested, see:
