Power of Revenge aka Wow!
This was a great book about the War on Drugs, politics, fear, greed, and revenge. This book is almost a continuation of James Ellroy's Underworld Trilogy (American Tabloid, Cold Six Thousand, and Blood's a Rover.) This book is engrossing and is filled with very human characters that are not "good" or "bad." This book changed my view of the world & I imagine it would do the same for anyone not living in the world this book portrays. This is a book that I'll remember...
This is a wonderfully written book. Winslow at his best. Great characters that are complex, flawed and in context...totally believable. Parallels actual events. Excellent!
Don Winslow has crafted one of the better books I have ever read. Power of the Dog is rich in detail. full of suspense, and moves quickly. The first time I read it, I felt chills run down my spine during some of the more suspensful scenes and upon re-reading it, I discovered new details evoking even stronger emotions.
Winslow has also crafted a book that gives one powerful insight into todays headlines on the War on Drugs; his stories seem to predate what is happening now (and in recent history). Although somewhat violent at times, the book is wonderfully written and a powerful read.
