The explosive, highly anticipated conclusion to the epic Cartel trilogy from the New York Times bestselling author of The Force

What do you do when there are no borders? When the lines you thought existed simply vanish?  How do you plant your feet to make a stand when you no longer know what side you’re on?

The war has come home.

For over forty years, Art Keller has been on the front lines of America’s longest conflict: The War on Drugs. His obsession to defeat the world’s most powerful, wealthy, and lethal kingpin?the godfather of the Sinaloa Cartel, Adán Barrera?has left him bloody and scarred, cost him the 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 thirty more that are wreaking even more chaos and suffering in his beloved Mexico. But not just there.

Barrera’s final legacy is the heroin epidemic scourging America. Throwing himself into the gap to stem the deadly flow, Keller finds himself surrounded by enemies?men who want to kill him, politicians who want to destroy him, and worse, the unimaginable?an incoming administration that’s in bed with the very drug traffickers that Keller is trying to bring down.

Art Keller is at war with not only the cartels, but with his own government. And the long fight has taught him more than he ever imagined. Now, he learns the final lesson?there are no borders.

In a story that moves from deserts of Mexico to Wall Street, from the slums of Guatemala to the marbled corridors of Washington, D.C., Winslow follows a new generation of narcos, the cops who fight them, street traffickers, addicts, politicians, money-launderers, real-estate moguls, and mere children fleeing the violence for the chance of a life in a new country.

A shattering tale of vengeance, violence, corruption and justice, this last novel in Don Winslow’s magnificent, award-winning, internationally bestselling trilogy is packed with unforgettable, drawn-from-the-headlines scenes. Shocking in its brutality, raw in its humanity, The Border is an unflinching portrait of modern America, a story of—and for—our time.

The Border

This is the fifth Don Winslow book I have read. I enjoyed the previous ones but really disliked this book. The book is very political, he spends so much time displaying his like for conservatives that it is not enjoyable. I don’t like books that take a political stand one way or the other, I read Winslow’s book for the entertainment value. If his future books are like this one I won’t be buying another.

Boring, poor attempt to make political comments

I struggled to get through this book. It was by far the worst book that I have read in the past 5 years. Not only was the book boring, but the author involved his political views in an otherwise fiction story. If I want to read his political views, I’ll buy a political book. When I buy a fiction book, I want to read for the entertainment value. Sadly, this book had none. The author failed to make the heroes compelling characters and the “action” scenes were far short of detail and boring. Even the conversations between characters were unrealistic. I can’t think of one positive thing to say about this book. I will never buy another book written by this author. It was that bad.
