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.

Reviews

"A stunning and timely conclusion to Don Winslow's drug-war trilogy. . . This is a book for dark, rudderless times, an immersion into fear and chaos. . . You don't read these books; you live in them."--New York Times
"Mr. Winslow writes gripping action sequences and wields statistics like a crusading journalist. Grand in scope, audacious in its political portraits, convincing in its socio-economic arguments and humane to the core, The Border is not only a formidable thriller but an important and provocative work."--Wall Street Journal
"If Dostoevsky slung dope, he might have written the fierce morality tale that Winslow began with The Power of the Dog . . . Truth compacted into narrative by way of meticulous research. . . Eerily prescient and scathing. . . quite simply the most important crime saga in modern literature."--Arizona Republic
"The Border is intricate, mean and swift, a sprawling canvass of characters. . . Granular detail and sharp dialogue have made his drug war trilogy propulsive and compelling. . . The stories unravel broken lives caught in a mesmerizing mosaic fueled by addiction and haunted by bloodshed."--Los Angeles Times
"Peak page-turner. . . Will rattle your soul in those early-morning hours as you come face to face with all the corruption and depravity in the world. . . The crime-fiction equivalent of The Stand--the kind of compulsive Stephen King-esque epic that captivates and horrifies."--Globe & Mail
"The Cartel and The Force were high water marks in the genre in terms of ambition and reach, and Winslow has excelled again. . . This is Winslow at his sensational best."--Financial Times
"Don Winslow's epic trilogy about America's longest war comes to a powerful and troubling conclusion."--Associated Press
"With clear-eyed determination and an almost Shakespearean grasp of human nature, Winslow takes readers on an unforgettable journey."--Publishers Weekly [starred review]
"I'm totally swept up. You can't ask for more emotionally moving entertainment. . . Everyone in America--left, right, and center--should read this book. It's social fiction to rival Tom Wolfe and John Steinbeck. Focused, angry, suspenseful, occasionally hilarious, always hugely entertaining. . . A harsh, important book."--Stephen King
"These angry, often heartbreaking books stand as the definitive fictional rendering of an ongoing modern tragedy. . . . The Border guides us through a savage, wholly believable world. The result is a powerful--and painful--journey through a contemporary version of hell. Rarely has hell been so compelling."--Washington Post
โ€œA landmark moment in crime fiction. . . . It is Winslow's remarkable ability to translate the utter fiasco of our 50-year War on Drugs into the most wrenching of human stories, tragedy seemingly without end, that gives this novel its unparalleled power.โ€--Booklist [starred review]
