'Breathtaking' JEREMY CLARKSON 'Winslow's masterpiece (so far) ... should have a place on every crime freak's bookshelf. Superb' INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY _______________________ A brilliant page-turning thriller of power and revenge on the front lines of the drug war. Drug lord Miguel Angel Barrera is head of the Mexican drug federacion, responsible for millions of dollars worth of cocaine traffic into the US and the torture and murder of those who stand in its way. His nephew, Adan Barrera, is his worthy successor. Art Keller is a US government operative, so determined to obtain revenge for a murdered colleague that his pursuit of the cartel veers dangerously towards an obsession outside the law. In a brutal world filled with striking characters, from a high class prostitute to an Irish hitman and a charismatic Catholic priest, everyone is in search of some kind of salvation - or damnation... Don Winslow's masterpiece is not only a page-turning thriller but also a rich and compelling novel in the league of James Ellroy or Don DeLillo. _______________________ The Cartel, the blockbuster sequel to The Power of the Dog, is also available.

The Power of the Dog throws shadows a mile long. Fearless, humane, aesthetically fervent, it's also passionate, unapologetic, gorgeously written and unquestionably authentic. * Dennis Lehane * Don Winslow is the kind of cult writer who is so good you almost want to keep him to yourself. -- Ian Rankin The first great dope novel since Dog Soldiers thirty years ago. It's frightening and sad, with a superbly sustained intensity. A beautifully compressed vision of hell, with all its attendant moral madness. -- James Ellroy A damn good read. If you've never read Don Winslow, start now. -- Val McDermid It is impossible in a few words to do [it] justice ... It's a huge book, both in size and scope. * Sunday Telegraph *
