Summary

The explosive, highly anticipated conclusion to the epic Cartel trilogy from the New York Times best-selling author of The Force.

The war has come home.

For over 40 years, Art Keller has been on the front lines of America’s longest conflict: the War on Drugs. His obsession with defeating the godfather of the Sinaloa Cartel - Adán Barrera - has cost him people he loves, even taken a piece of his soul.  

Now Keller is elevated to the highest ranks of the DEA, only to find that in destroying one monster he has created 30 more that are wreaking chaos in his beloved Mexico. But not just there. 

Fighting to end the heroin epidemic scourging America, Keller finds himself surrounded by an incoming administration that’s in bed with the very drug traffickers that Keller is trying to bring down.

From the slums of Guatemala to the marbled corridors of Washington, DC, Winslow follows a new generation of narcos, cops, addicts, politicians and mere children fleeing the violence for the chance of a life in a new country.

A shattering tale of vengeance, corruption and justice, The Border is an unflinching portrait of modern America, a story of - and for - our time.

A MASTERPIECE.

The combination of Don Winslow's words, and Ray Porter's voice make this an exceptional experience.
Please make The Power of the Dog, and The Cartel, also available on Audible, preferably with Ray Porter narrating them.
This trio of powerful stories is too good not to be available as a set.
Don Winslow is an outstanding writer, and Ray Porter has made a masterful job of this narration.
I cannot recommend this production highly enough.
Thank you.

Epic....just epic

Don't be put off by this being 3rd in a trilogy - the author skillfully paints the picture of the first two books over the opening two hours or so.

Almost 30hrs flies by in a blur of intricate storytelling and wonderful performance.

This book is so good I have written my first review in over 70 audible audio books. The only downside is that the first two books weren't on audible.....sort this out please.

Brilliant conclusion to the trilogy

Beautifully told by the narrator this is the most powerful and absorbing novel of the Cartel trilogy by Don Winslow. I didn't think the other two novels could be bettered but boy, was I wrong. Simply stunning narrative. I cannot recommend this novel highly enough.

End of an epic story

Amazing story. Had me yearning for doing chores so I could listen. Wholeheartedly recommend!

Ever since I stumbled over "Power of the dog" I've been enthralled by the insight Winslow offers into the Mexican drug trade and the counter moves from the DEA.

This book combines the political games in Washington (complete with a Trump character) with the horrifying front line details of the sicarios of the cartels. I usually don't care for political drama, but the author keeps it interesting without becoming too complicated.

Reads like a movie, just like the other books in the series. It can be read as a stand alone as well.

Section through a drug sphere

@donwinslow if one was to visualise the drug problem as a solid sphere and slice a few sections through the sphere, what you would see under the microscope are the three books from Don _ #ThePowerOfDog, The #Cartel and The #Border. More than a story..it’s an EPIC🙏
