Ian Fleming Steel Dagger 2016


Don Winslow

The Cartel

Published by: William Heinemann

A viscerally realistic report from the drug wars in early 2000s Mexico. Brutally authentic and immersive, this thriller is a powerful enough achievement as a gripping fact-driven narrative, but transcends as fiction through Winslow’s taut portrayal of a violent revenger’s tragedy.
