Don Winslow on his book “The Border” @ Politics & Prose
Don Winslow discusses his novel, “The Border”, at Politics and Prose on 3/1/19.
Winslow’s crime thrillers have won audiences world-wide, and many—Savages, The Death and Life of Bobby Z, The Force—have been turned into acclaimed films. His latest book joins The Power of the Dog and The Cartel to conclude his award-winning trilogy on the drug trade. Again featuring Art Keller, now in the top ranks of the DEA after a forty-year career, the novel follows the agent from his successful efforts to defeat the Mexican drug kingpin Adán Barrera into an even more dangerous fight against the heroin epidemic. Moving at a fast pace from south of the border and the slums of Guatemala to Wall Street and Washington, D.C., the story pits Keller against not only a new generation of narcos, corrupt cops, and street traffickers but an incoming administration that’s as much his enemy as the old drug cartels were.
DON WINSLOW is the author of twenty acclaimed, award-winning international bestsellers – including the New York Times bestseller and sensation The Force, the #1 international bestseller The Cartel, The Power of the Dog, Savages, and The Winter of Frankie Machine. Savages was made into a major film by three-time Oscar winning writer-director Oliver Stone. The Cartel is scheduled to begin production in 2019. A former investigator, anti-terrorist trainer, and trial consultant, Winslow lives in California and Rhode Island.
