Frequently bought together
“Mr. Winslow writes gripping action sequences and wields statistics like a crusading journalist. Grand in scope, audacious in its political portraits, convincing in its socio-economic arguments and humane to the core, The Border is not only a formidable thriller but an important and provocative work.” -- Wall Street Journal
“I’m totally swept up. You can’t ask for more emotionally moving entertainment. . . Everyone in America—left, right, and center—should read this book. It’s social fiction to rival Tom Wolfe and John Steinbeck. Focused, angry, suspenseful, occasionally hilarious, always hugely entertaining. . . A harsh, important book.” -- Stephen King
“These angry, often heartbreaking books stand as the definitive fictional rendering of an ongoing modern tragedy. . . . The Border guides us through a savage, wholly believable world. The result is a powerful—and painful—journey through a contemporary version of hell. Rarely has hell been so compelling.” -- Washington Post
“If Dostoevsky slung dope, he might have written the fierce morality tale that Winslow began with The Power of the Dog . . . Truth compacted into narrative by way of meticulous research. . . Eerily prescient and scathing. . . quite simply the most important crime saga in modern literature.” -- Arizona Republic
“The Border is intricate, mean and swift, a sprawling canvass of characters. . . Granular detail and sharp dialogue have made his drug war trilogy propulsive and compelling. . . The stories unravel broken lives caught in a mesmerizing mosaic fueled by addiction and haunted by bloodshed.” -- Los Angeles Times
“A landmark moment in crime fiction. . . . It is Winslow’s remarkable ability to translate the utter fiasco of our 50-year War on Drugs into the most wrenching of human stories, tragedy seemingly without end, that gives this novel its unparalleled power.” -- Booklist [starred review]
“Peak page-turner. . . Will rattle your soul in those early-morning hours as you come face to face with all the corruption and depravity in the world. . . The crime-fiction equivalent of The Stand—the kind of compulsive Stephen King-esque epic that captivates and horrifies.” -- Globe & Mail
“The Cartel and The Force were high water marks in the genre in terms of ambition and reach, and Winslow has excelled again. . . This is Winslow at his sensational best.” -- Financial Times
“Don Winslow’s epic trilogy about America’s longest war comes to a powerful and troubling conclusion.” -- Associated Press
“With clear-eyed determination and an almost Shakespearean grasp of human nature, Winslow takes readers on an unforgettable journey.” -- Publishers Weekly [starred review]

I noticed that in these 3 novels of which this is the last DW tries to tell a very long and complex tale as quickly as possible. This could have been twice as long easily. I found myself noticing that reading this was starting to resemble reading later James Ellroy novels. There is less room from fluff due to the scope of the story that DW pares back the descriptions somewhat. Don't worry, it's not Ellroy, just different from his other novels like The Force (2017).
A worthy successor to The Power of the Dog and The Cartel.
End the failed war on drugs. Legalize all of it . . . it will saves lives and money and we can turn to healing the root causes of the pain that draws so many Americans to drugs.
That's how the Border made me feel.
Hell, that's how the entire trilogy made me feel, and the Border is the best of them all. Easily the Ferrari of the series. Mr. Winslow ends things his way, and in a way that leaves the reader with a gut punch impression of what is happening on our border, and the truth behind the war on drugs. I started reading Mr. Winslow for entertainment, like many readers, but along the way I've learned so much about the southern border and what's really been happening for the past thirty years. Thank you, Mr. Winslow, for dedicating over twenty-years of your life to telling this story--a story that all Americans should read.
