Don Winslow, “The Cartel”
Not all mystery writers have had actual experience as private investigators, but it’s worked for Winslow. Winner of the Raymond Chandler Award and the author of some seventeen novels, one of which, Savages, using Winslow’s screenplay, was filmed by Oliver Stone, Winslow now continues the story he began in his gripping 2005 The Power of the Dog. Having put a top Mexican drug lord in prison, DEA agent Art Keller retires. His peace and quiet come to an abrupt end when the convict is transferred from a U.S. to a Mexican prison and violence erupts again—as does Keller’s own struggle with drugs.
