The Kings of Cool
A Prequel to Savages

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Cartel, The Force, and The Border
In Savages, Don Winslow introduced Ben and Chon, twenty-something best friends who risk everything to save the girl they both love, O. Among the most celebrated literary thrillers, Savages was a Top 10 Book of the Year selection by Janet Maslin in The New York Times and Stephen King in Entertainment Weekly.
Now, in this high-octane prequel to Savages, Winslow reaches back in time to tell the story of how Ben, Chon, and O became the people they are. Spanning from 1960s Southern California to the recent past, The Kings of Cool is a breathtakingly original saga of family in all its forms—fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, friends and lovers. As the trio at the center of the book does battle with a cabal of drug dealers and crooked cops, they come to learn that their future is inextricably linked with their parents’ history. A series of breakneck twists and turns puts the two generations on a collision course, culminating in a stunning showdown that will force Ben, Chon, and O to choose between their real families and their loyalty to one another.

Better then Savages...A must read for anyone looking to lose themselves into a world of non stop adventure
Great follow up
Busy momma & wife
Brilliant writing! Entertaining! Couldn't wait to get to the end, yet I didn't want it to end! Not sure if I should have read Savages second. Reading out of order gave me a reflective perspective. Enjoyed references to the OC...surprised by all the drug dealing going on right under our noses as we go on in the non-narcotic world... Or is it???
