Another fine novel from Don Winslow
January 1, 2014
An absorbing and nuanced examination of the war between the drug cartels and the US government and its agencies that sketches its political and social underpinnings and exposes the greed, voilence and corruption that fuel it. Well drawn fictional characters that are credible, interesting and human with story lines that never lose their momentum with Winslow's entertaining and punchy writing style.
