The explosive, highly anticipated conclusion to the epic Cartel trilogy from the New York Times bestselling author of The Force
What do you do when there are no borders? When the lines you thought existed simply vanish? How do you plant your feet to make a stand when you no longer know what side you’re on?
The war has come home.
For over forty years, Art Keller has been on the front lines of America’s longest conflict: The War on Drugs. His obsession to defeat the world’s most powerful, wealthy, and lethal kingpin―the godfather of the Sinaloa Cartel, Adán Barrera―has left him bloody and scarred, cost him the people he loves, even taken a piece of his soul.
Now Keller is elevated to the highest ranks of the DEA, only to find that in destroying one monster he has created thirty more that are wreaking even more chaos and suffering in his beloved Mexico. But not just there.
Barrera’s final legacy is the heroin epidemic scourging America. Throwing himself into the gap to stem the deadly flow, Keller finds himself surrounded by enemies―men who want to kill him, politicians who want to destroy him, and worse, the unimaginable―an incoming administration that’s in bed with the very drug traffickers that Keller is trying to bring down.
Art Keller is at war with not only the cartels, but with his own government. And the long fight has taught him more than he ever imagined. Now, he learns the final lesson―there are no borders.
In a story that moves from deserts of Mexico to Wall Street, from the slums of Guatemala to the marbled corridors of Washington, D.C., Winslow follows a new generation of narcos, the cops who fight them, street traffickers, addicts, politicians, money-launderers, real-estate moguls, and mere children fleeing the violence for the chance of a life in a new country.
A shattering tale of vengeance, violence, corruption and justice, this last novel in Don Winslow’s magnificent, award-winning, internationally bestselling trilogy is packed with unforgettable, drawn-from-the-headlines scenes. Shocking in its brutality, raw in its humanity, The Border is an unflinching portrait of modern America, a story of—and for—our time.
Brilliant end of the trilogy
Another hit by Mr. Winslow, who does expertly dissect the intertwined world of drugs, corruption, finance and politics in such a deep and realistic manner. This was a great end of the trilogy started with The Power of the Dog. All three books so rich in history, politics, the church, the human being lowest points... Congratulations Mr. Winslow, it’s truly difficult to successfully close a 20-year trilogy the way you have mastered it.
Regardless of the author’s political beliefs and regardless of whether they align with my own, I don’t want to be constantly bombarded with shallow partisan comments while I read B-level (at best) fiction. Such books are meant for entertainment, and by doing so, the author destroys the sole purpose of reading the crap. I stopped reading around the halfway point because the mild entertainment value was significantly outweighed by the annoyance of author’s political sniping. If you’re like me, don’t buy this book.
Another excellent read Don Winslow writes classics
