Description

From the bestselling author of the acclaimed The Power of the Dog comes The Cartel, a gripping true-to-life epic, ripped from the headlines, spanning the past decade of the Mexican-American drug wars. It's 2004. DEA agent Art Keller has been fighting the war on drugs for thirty years in a blood feud against Adan Barrera, the head of El Federacion, the world's most powerful cartel, and the man who brutally murdered Keller's partner. Putting Barrera away costs Keller dearly - the woman he loves, the beliefs he cherishes, the life he wants to lead. Then Barrera gets out, determined to rebuild the empire that Keller shattered. Unwilling to live in a world with Barrera in it, Keller goes on a ten-year odyssey to take him down. The Cartel is a true-to-life story of power, corruption, revenge, honour and sacrifice, as one man tries to face down the devil without losing his soul.show more

Review quote

"Don Winslow delivers his longest and finest novel yet in The Cartel. This is the War and Peace of dope-war books. Tense, brutal, wildly atmospheric, stunningly plotted, deeply etched. It's got the jazz-dog feel of a shot of pure meth." -- James Ellroy "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 "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 "Don Winslow is one of the most exciting and well-researched crime writers of modern times. The Cartel is a masterpiece of storytelling." -- Simon Kernick "Astoundingly ambitious...Draws on real events and people as it chronicles Mexico's drug wars...Masterfully organised and teeming with memorable characters, it is unlikely to be bettered this year." * Sunday Times (Thriller of the month) *show more
