    Several years ago I did my first interview with legendary comic book writer/artist Howard Chaykin. At the end of the interview I revealed to him I was a crime fiction fan. So we then spent twenty minutes swapping recommendations, and one of the most interesting novels he recommended to...

    No one cold accuse Don Winslow of a lack of ambition. The scope of this novel dwarfs almost anything we would consider to be a literary novel. Whatever skill he may lack as a wordsmith, he more than makes up for in this shotgun blast of a story that takes down everyone even remotely in...

    They say that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again while expecting a different result. So maybe America should start questioning its ?war on drugs? which is almost 50 years old now? Nah. Let?s just keep doing the same thing we always have. It...

    Don Winslow brings to a close his two decades obsession with the War on Drugs and the people involved, principally Art Keller and Adan Barrera. The Border has Adan dead (or is he? Adan Vive the people scrawl) and Art fighting a new threat, the people in America who profit by the obscen...

    This is the concluding book of Don Winslow's well-researched trilogy on America's longest-running war: the war on drugs, with a primary focus on Mexico, and especially, the Sinaloa cartel. For maximum enjoyment, read The Power of the Dog [2005] and The Cartel [2015] first, and be prepa...

    If you only read one book this year, make it this one. I eagerly anticipated this third book in Winslow?s trilogy for almost 2 years after he told me at a BEA that he was working on it. At 720 pages, it?s a doorstopper but Winslow provides backstory so that it can be enjoyed as a s...

    Twice now, Don Winslow believed he was out. After finishing 2005?s The Power of the Dog, he?d felt he said his piece on the war on drugs. Then, nearly a decade later, he sat down at a keyboard and started typing what would become his follow-up to The Power of the Dog, The Cartel...

    A superlative ending to the Power of the Dog trilogy, The Border is a perfect blend of the first two volumes. The epic sprawl of The Cartel is cut back, though we see a broad swath of the people affected by the drug war, from a migrant child fleeing gang violence, an addict struggling ...

    They have not yet invented a sufficient number of superlatives to describe how much I loved this book. It's an absolute masterpiece and a very worthy conclusion to the trilogy that Winslow began with The Power of the Dog in 2005. It's a sweeping epic with a huge cast that clocks in at ...

    There's a lot to unpack here. Perhaps a little too much for a novel that was meant to be an epic conclusion, but you can't blame Don Winslow for throwing everything at the wall. And he throws everything: a heroin epidemic, corrupt politicians, a power vacuum in Mexican cartels, the...

    After a writing journey of over 20 years, Don Winslow hits it way out of the park with this incredible finale to his trilogy. Everything about this book hit the superior bell. Absolutely marvelous! Thanks, Don. ...

    Stephen King recommended series. He tweeted: ?These books are coolness.? He tweeted: "Reading THE BORDER, by Don Winslow (out next month). Man is a balls-to-the-wall storyteller. A harsh, important book. Favorite line so far: "The difference between a hedge fund manager and a [d...

    THE BORDER is the last book in the POWER OF THE DOG trilogy. All I can say is WOW. It was everything I hoped for and more. Brutal criminals, sometimes even more brutal law enforcement, international drug wars, politics, and the absolutely fabulous Ray Porter relating it all in that ...

    So good?I didn?t want it to end. Ray Porter is the shit when it comes to narrating these books?he does an impeccable job reading incomparable material. I may just start the whole trilogy over again... ...

    I thankfully discovered Don Winslow several years ago when the second leg of his now complete The Cartel trilogy, was released. I picked up the audiobook and was captured immediately, taken deep into the world of drugs and its traffickers, and the accompanying violence and corruption. ...

    I am an unabashed fan of Don Winslow in general and his trilogy about the drug wars in particular. While Power of the Dog is a satisfying breakfast and The Cartel is a great lunch, The Border is a full on banquet. Winslow grabs you on the first page and never lets go for the next 715 p...

    The best book I've read this year and should be best book of 2019. The Border is exceptional, exciting - epic. Bravo Don Winslow. ...

    This was one of my most anticipated books of the year. I didn't like this as much as the first two books but it was still a good conclusion to one of the most powerful trilogies I've ever read. I felt a little sad at the end because the state of the US's "drug war" is so bleak. I knew ...

    Disappointing I couldn't wait for this to come out. I sped through the first 2 books. This is way too California anti Trump syndrome to ignore. I hate paying to have politics rammed down my throat. ...

    4.5 stars. The first two books in this trilogy were perfection, I removed a half star from this one because there were two or three chapters that I felt did not fit into the overall flow and were a bit unnecessary. That being said I feel that these books deserve a place amongst the ver...

    Though you could read this as a standalone, I'd recommend reading The Power of the Dog and The Cartel first. At 700 pages, there's plenty of story here, and no filler. There is a bit of catch-up explication to start, but once it picks up speed, hold on. There's much to recommend it, fr...

    Don Winslow is a master. This is such a great ending to a fantastic trilogy. This book locks you in within 5 minutes of starting it, and it does not let up until the last words. I would HIGHLY recommend reading the first two books in the series if you have not done so yet. It wil...

    The Border (2018) follows The Power of the Dog (2005) and The Cartel (2015) as the last in Don Winslow's powerful and disturbing trilogy of the rise of Mexican drug cartels. Each novel follows a generation of Mexican drug families: Dog introduces us to the diverse families that started...

    After completing THE FORCE, the second installment of Don Winslow?s THE POWER OF THE DOG trilogy that encompasses the narco-drug world that resides in Mexico, but also a symbiotic relationship with areas of the United States, I looked forward to seeing how his fictional account with ...

    Together with The Power of the Dog and The Cartel, these books are foundational texts of our time. Some stories are more real than nonfiction, they let later generations breathe the air of a world, live inside a different time. I?ve read innumerable history books, but the deepest thi...

    The Final Book of the Trilogy The Border is the final concluding chapter to Winslow?s magnum opus, his trilogy about the long-running drug war. Like the first two lengthy chapters in the trilogy, The Power the Dog and the Cartel, The Border is a broad, sweeping epic telling multip...

    I can?t imagine anything will beat this as my best read of 2019. An epic tale. A modern masterpiece from an absolutely brilliant writer. Following on from The Cartel, Art Keller?s war on the drug trade continues, but now the war has crossed the border into the USA. So m...

    We cannot build a wall, a fence, a border across the entire United States. We cannot end the drug cartel put every bad person in prison, lock em all up. What we can do is what we've been doing because when each member of the cartel are caught thousands more are scattering to get in t...
