The Power of the Dog

1 Mins read

The bad America that Ellroy does so well, and that DeLillo sometimes chronicles, is powerfully evoked in Don Winslow’s own lucid storytelling. Poetic and abrasive at the same time, he drags your raw and sorry ass into the world of Art Keller, a Vietnam vet and DEA officer whose job it is to stem the tide of narcotics into the US from Central America. Like the hydra of myth, when once cartel head is severed two seem to grow back in its place. Read it – it’s one of the most powerful, troubling and best-written books based on drug-running written in years.
