Every morning, at towns in Texas like Brownsville and McAllen, fleets of wheelers packed with cheap consumer goods some of them illicit rumble over international bridges, slowing down only to shift gears. Presidential dreams of a big, beautiful wall notwithstanding, for now and, perhaps, for the foreseeable future an endless mass of inexpensive T-shirts, fresh avocadoes, black tar heroin, undocumented migrants and fanny-packed vacationers will continue flowing undiminished through the great, swirling circulatory system that the two countries share. There is, however, at least one group for whom the border is a hard frontier, solid and impermeable: the American law-enforcement officers who have the job of investigating crimes that occur along its length. His American gaze at Mexico is mournful like that of a man watching his cousin die of cancer. An investigative reporter who has covered the border for publications like Time and The Guardian for nearly two decades, del Bosque based her account on scores of personal interviews and reams of court documents, and proves herself fluent in detailing the exceedingly different, but equally rich, milieus of cartel kingpins, Texas equestrians and federal investigators. Along the way, del Bosque has the great good fortune to have at her disposal an array of unusual and interesting characters.
Don Winslow, the acclaimed author of The Winter of Frankie Machine , Savages , The Force and other literary crime novels, has completed his internationally bestselling trilogy which includes The Power of the Dog , The Cartel , and his just published novel, The Border. In The Border , the heroin epidemic is the scourge of America, and now, Keller is not only at war with the cartels, but with his own government. This final installment of the trilogy is brutal, humane, soul-searching, and resonates with the story of America today. The book is not only a powerhouse crime thriller, but is a primer on the realities of the drug trade, on corruption, immigration, our politics, big business and their intersection in our tumultuous times. Don Winslow: It began in when there was a massacre of nineteen men, women, and children in a little town in Mexico, not far from where we used to go on weekends. I never started out to write The Power of the Dog. I was reading philosophy books, trying to get an answer to this question about human brutality.
