Review:

"The Power of the Dog throws shadows a mile long. Fearless, humane, aesthetically fervent, it's also passionate, unapologetic, gorgeously written and unquestionably authentic." --Dennis Lehane

"An express train of a thriller that cannot be put down. . . . One of this year's finest novels." --The Baltimore Sun

"A pit bull of a book. Once unleashed, this thriller . . . charges and attacks without mercy, shredding anyone in its path. . . . A well-tuned plot, driving rhythm, intelligence and a touch of politics." --The Washington Post

"You should try to get your hands on everything Winslow's written, because he's one of the best thriller writers on the planet." --Esquire

"Blasts off like a rocket . . . The Power of the Dog burns with rage at the badly flawed U.S. war on drugs." --The San Diego Union-Tribune

"Expansive, thought-provoking. . . . A cast of drug enforcement agents and drug dealers, government officials and religious leaders, willing participants and innocent bystanders is swept up in a dizzying tidal wave of events that horrify and shock." --Pittsburgh Tribune-Review

"Thrilling. . . . Fast-paced. . . . Epic in scope." --The Denver Post

"Tremendous. . . . This puts even the excellent The Death and Life of Bobby Z and California Fire and Life in the shade. . . . No one since James Ellroy has conveyed the morally troubled heart of the American dream with such savage aim. . . . A future classic." --The Guardian (London)

"The story is as addictive as its subject matter." --New York Post

"A miracle. . . . The best writing about Mexico by an Anglo since the days of Graham Greene. . . . [A] book you don't want to end. . . . There's no way you're going to find anything more compelling, more revealing about a major issue in society and more pulse-pounding in terms of action and
suspense than this. . . . Read it for its action, its insight into the drug underworld, its amazing prose. It's the one crime novel this year you absolutely can't ignore." --The Huntsville Times

"[A] tour de force. . . . Harrowing. . . . Complex and riveting. . . . Pack[s] one gut punch after another. . . . The best crime novel about the Western Hemisphere's drug trade . . . in many years. It will leave you stunned. . . . A book like The Power of the Dog rarely comes along, and when it does, let it break your heart and open your mind." --January Magazine

"It is impossible in a few words to do justice to Don Winslow's The Power of the Dog. . . . The hero's determination is passionately portrayed, and his personal crusade makes a memorable and thought-provoking novel." --The Daily Telegraph (London)

"The Power of the Dog is the first great dope novel since Dog Soldiers thirty years ago. It's frightening and sad, with a superbly sustained intensity. It's a beautifully compressed vision of hell, with all its attendant moral madness." --James Ellroy, author of The Cold Six Thousand

"Provocative. . . . Convincing. . . . Every character, even those doomed to be quickly ground under the wheels of fate, is a living, breathing person. . . . The story shocks, educates and puts strangely human faces on 'the problem.' . . . A very believable tale that delicately walks the line between
documentary and fiction." --Edge Boston

"Exciting. . . . Well-plotted. . . . [A] tense, brutal thriller." --The Decatur Daily

"With an epic's scope and a freight train's rush, The Power of the Dog is an absolute page-turner. I couldn't put it down and I was sorry when it ended. As always, Don Winslow delivers!" --S. J. Rozan, author of Absent Friends

"Revelatory. . . . A dynamo of a book. . . . [Winslow] brings an intense realism to a pounding account of narco-trafficking across our southern border. . . . He fuels his narrative with conviction and rocket-engine pacing . . . [and] a splendidly realized cast of characters on both sides of the law. . . . If you like an adventure into the sacred or the untouchable, take this ride." --Entertainment Today

From the Publisher:

Don Winslow's break-out novel. A hugely ambitious, page-turning thriller of power and revenge, in the tradition of the Great American Novel.

'This is Winslow's masterpiece (so far) and should have a place on every crime freak's bookshelf. Superb!' Independent on Sunday
