I've followed Don Winslow on twitter for ages because he does good tweets about writing and politics, but I hadn't picked up one of his books until now. After reading The Power of the Dog, I will be impatiently waiting for my holds on the other two to come in at the library because this book is genuinely epic. A sprawling story that encompasses every type of crime from mafia to narcos to police corruption to politics to arms dealing, and more, and weaving them into a brutal, page-turning thriller. Winslow captures the blistering horror of the War on Drugs in all its faces and angles, and turns it into a monumental work from which you can't look away.
