Editorial Reviews

Review

“A big, sprawling, ultimately stunning crime tableau. . . . The Cartel, like The Power of the Dog, can be better appreciated for its gritty, gasp-inducing knowledge of true crime’s brutal extremes and for its unflinching awareness of what Mr. Winslow calls ‘evil beyond the possibility of redemption.’”
—Janet Maslin, The New York Times
 
“You don’t have to read Don Winslow’s The Power of the Dog to get swept away by The Cartel, its ripped-from-the-headlines sequel, but you should.  You should try to get your hands on everything Winslow’s written, because he’s one of the best thriller writers on the planet.  An epic, gritty south-of-the-border Godfather for our time.”
—Benjamin Percy, Esquire
 
“Clearly one of the most ambitious and most accomplished crime novels to appear in the last fifteen years, The Cartel will likely retain that distinction even as the twenty-first century grinds on.”
—Bill Ott, Booklist
 
“Don Winslow’s The Cartel is the most important crime saga of the millennium. . . . The Cartel is fiction in the same way Upton Sinclair’s The Jungle is fiction. This is reporting and exposé built around an intricate plot, finely etched characters, and whip-crack dialogue. Storytelling that matters.”
—Robert Anglen, Arizona Republic
 
“A Game of Thrones of the Mexican drug wars, a multipart, intricately plotted, blood-soaked epic that tells the story of how America’s unquenchable appetite for illegal drugs has brought chaos to our southern neighbors and darkened our own political and criminal culture.”
—Will Dana, Rolling Stone
  
“Astoundingly ambitious. . . . Draws on real events and people as it chronicles Mexico’s drug wars. . . . Masterfully organized and teeming with memorable characters, it is unlikely to be bettered this year.”
—John Dugdale, The Sunday Times (London), thriller of the month
 
“Winslow’s masterly sequel to The Power of the Dog continues his epic story of the Mexican drug wars. This exhaustively researched novel elucidates not just the situation in Mexico but the consequences of our own disastrous forty-year ‘war on drugs.’”
—Publishers Weekly
 
“Winslow is the most fearless chronicler of the chaos and violence along the U.S.-Mexico border. . . . [He] has written what could be the War and Peace of the War on Drugs.”
—Erik Hedegaard, Men’s Journal

“Don Winslow delivers his longest and finest novel yet in The Cartel. This is the War and Peace of dopewar books. Tense, brutal, wildly atmospheric, stunningly plotted, deeply etched. It’s got the jazz dog feel of a shot of pure meth!!”
—James Ellroy

“Don Winslow has done it again. The Cartel is a first rate edge-of-your-seat thriller for sure, but it also continues Winslow’s incisive reporting on the dangers and intricacies of the world we live in. There is no higher mark for a storyteller than to both educate and entertain. With Winslow these aspects are entwined like strands of DNA. He’s a master and this book proves it once again.”
—Michael Connelly

“The Cartel is a gut-punch of a novel. Big, ambitious, violent and widely entertaining, Don Winslow’s latest is an absolute must-read.”
—Harlan Coben
 
“Sensationally good, even after the near-perfection of The Power of the Dog. Less of a sequel than an integral part of a solid-gold whole.”
—Lee Child
