The New York Times bestselling second novel in the explosive Power of the Dog series—an action-filled look at the drug trade that takes you deep inside a world riddled with corruption, betrayal, and bloody revenge.

Book Two of the Power of the Dog Series

It’s 2004. Adán Barrera, kingpin of El Federación, is languishing in a California federal prison. Ex-DEA agent Art Keller passes his days in a monastery, having lost everything to his thirty-year blood feud with the drug lord. Then Barrera escapes. Now, there’s a two-million-dollar bounty on Keller’s head and no one else capable of taking Barrera down. As the carnage of the drug war reaches surreal new heights, the two men are locked in a savage struggle that will stretch from the mountains of Sinaloa to the shores of Veracruz, to the halls of power in Washington, ensnaring countless others in its wake. Internationally bestselling author Don Winslow's The Cartel is the searing, unfiltered epic of the drug war in the twenty-first century.

The Cartel

Wonderfully written. Great story.

Don Winslow should be the one making drug policy for the US.

The futility of the War on Drugs.

We lost, very very very bad guys won.

Winslow tell a great story. He changed my thinking about the drug laws.

He doesn't say it, nor do I know if he believes it. He just tell the story. Drugs have to be made legal. No way to stop them coming across the border.

Drug trade has helped lead to the disintegration of the Mexican state. US is partially responsible. Of course, corrupt Mexican politicians are also responsible.

I've read other books by Winslow and they are all great.

He has something to say that is important to all Americans.

George Will wrote a column about his books and George Will being someone I greatly admire, I immediately went and purchased this one.

Every America should read this.
