"Savages will jolt Mr. Winslow into a different league...[his] most boisterously stylish crime book, his gutsiest and most startling bid for attention....full of wild-card moves....its wisecracks are so sharp, its characters so mega-cool and its storytelling so ferocious that the risks pay off, thanks especially to Mr. Winslow's no-prisoners sense of humor....The Winslow effect is to fuse the grave and the playful, the body blow and the joke, the nightmare and the pipe dream." --Janet Maslin, The New York Times
"Winslow's marvelous, adrenaline-juiced roller coaster of a novel . . . is both a departure and a culmination, pyrotechnic braggadocio and deep meditation on contemporary American culture."
--Sarah Weinman, Los Angeles Times
"Savages is Don Winslow's best book yet--a wickedly funny and smart novel, with a ripped-from-the-headlines story that gets your pulse racing as the action unfolds. Razor-sharp plot twists, a cast of ruthless antiheroes, and of course, Winslow's superb, adrenaline-fueled prose make this scorching, drug-infused thriller an addictive and entertaining read." --Janet Evanovich
"The stakes are extreme. . . . This is the story of love's costs--and the acceptance of whatever that cost entails." --Randy Michael Signor, Chicago Sun Times
"Savages is the book of my generation . . . nothing short of revolutionary, a flash grenade into the ineffectual heart of Generation Y. . . . . solidifies Winslow's reputation as not just one of the best crime writers working today, but one of the best writers, period. Jesus Christ, this book." --Brendan Leonard, January Magazine
"Winslow is a brilliant stylist, unflinching in detail, and his books jab a fountain pen in the eye of anyone who can read one of his tomes and state with conviction that crime fiction isn't literature." --Jason Pinter, The Huffington Post
"A spellbinding, tour de force that is utterly impossible to put down. Savages is, bar none, the finest novel I have read in years." --Christopher Reich
"An ultra-lean, stoner thriller....It packs a dynamic plot, sentences dripping with ``baditude'' and a singular way with language....Winslow's writing has the vigor of action painting....[his] command of vernacular is fabulous, his eye for detail sharp....Winslow's insights into drug wars are provocative, his descriptions of marijuana tantalizing." --Carlo Wolff, The Boston Globe
