About the Author

Don Winslow is the author of twenty-two acclaimed, award-winning international bestsellers, including the New York Times bestsellers The Force and The Border, the #1 international bestseller The Cartel, The Power of the Dog, Savages, and The Winter of Frankie Machine. Savages was made into a feature film by three-time Oscar-winning writer-director Oliver Stone. The Power of the Dog, The Cartel, and The Border sold to FX to air as a major television series, and The Force is soon to be a major motion picture from 20th Century Studios. A former investigator, antiterrorist trainer, and trial consultant, Winslow lives in California and Rhode Island.


"After three epic-scale masterpieces--The Cartel (2015), The Force (2017), and The Border (2019)--Winslow returns with a delicious serving of small plates. . . . A greatest-hits album but with all-new melodies: what could be sweeter?!"--Booklist [starred review]
"A great collection of short crime fiction."--Kirkus Reviews [starred review]
"Winslow, whose work includes a dozen of the finest crime novels written in the last 20 years, displays all of his strengths, including propulsive narration, compelling characters and a tight, staccato writing style, in "Broken," a collection of six remarkable novellas."--Bruce De Silva, Associated Press

"A master of thrills shows his range, and his bite . . . [Winslow is] a writer from whom others can learn the ropes."--Janet Maslin, New York Times
"Fans of the author will eat up these neat, taut, action-packed stories, told in staccato sentences and one-line paragraphs."--Library Journal
"While Winslow is in widely fluent in many different prose techniques -- from the twisty punchline felonies of Elmore Leonard and Robert B. Parker to the rebop riffs of James Ellroy to mega-works of dark literature a la Cormac McCarthy and James Lee Burke -- he's not "copying" anyone. He's writing his OWN masterpieces and just happens to do so in the fashion appropriate to the work. . . . Every piece in Broken is a winner and compellingly different."--The Day (CT)
"Entertaining . . . . All six yarns feature Mr. Winslow's talent for narrative thrust and linguistic economy."--Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
"Don Winslow has made his name with propulsive thrillers about drug lords, corrupt cops, retired hit men, and surfer-outlaws. His brisk, colorful prose and artful shorthand, showcased in 2019's The Border, shine in this collection of six novellas."
--New York Magazine
"The six little doses of crime fiction here run the gamut from gritty, bloody thrillers to a humorous encounter with a gun-wielding chimpanzee. . . . Time and again, Winslow creates deeply believable characters by highlighting their desires and the setbacks to fulfilling those desires -- goals to which readers can easily relate."--Nashville Scene
"If you're a Don Winslow fan - and of course you are - you've surely been waiting for reunions with Ben and Chon or the Dawn Patrol, that Hemi V-8 elegy to Highway 101, or a border-crossing saga to match the author's ferocious anti-Trump Twitter feed. You just never imagined they'd arrive in the same 335-page package. . . . An arresting set of six short novels."--The Oregonian
"With the passing of Elmore Leonard a few years back, it's now safe to proclaim Winslow America's greatest living crime writer. His consistency is matched only by his creativity, his talent exceeded by his ability to surpass himself time and time again."--Jon Land, Providence Journal
"One of the masters of mystery and thriller, Don Winslow's latest volume is a reading bonanza: a collection of six crime-focused short novels . . . that riffs off the genre with technical virtuosity, building to a staggering immersion in the possibilities of the form. It's a hugely enjoyable crash course in the chameleon-like possibilities of crime."--The Arts Desk (UK)
"Exhibiting a remarkable range, [Winslow is] just as good at sprints as long distances, is as adept at mimicking screwball capers as mobster movies, and can charm as well as chill. . . . A dazzling display of versatility, this set of novellas shows Winslow to be an author who has hit his prime."--The Sunday Times (UK)
"This is an outstanding sextet in which - praise be! - 'love and loyalty trump the law.' It is fast, furious, and very funny."--The Times [London]
