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

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, Adan Barrera-has left him bloody and scarred, cost him 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 that want to kill him, politicians that 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 south of the border to Wall Street, from the slums of Guatemala to the marbled corridors of Washington, DC, Winslow follows a new generation of narcos, the cops that fight them, the street traffickers, the addicts, the politicians, money-launderers, real-estate moguls, and mere children fleeing the violence for the chance of a life in a new country.

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.

Simply one of the best books I have read in the past 20 years. No doubt about it. This is the best book in the trilogy. And that's saying something! ( )

Ok, but very long and slow-moving….story line never did develop empugh to keep me interested, didnot finish ( )

An excellent conclusion to a gut-wrenching trilogy. If Winslow made a statement about not portraying actual people, he had his fingers crossed behind his back when he did it. A lot of actual events were described in the pages of this trilogy. ( )

The Border is the on-going story of Art Keller, Vietnam Vet, ex-CIA agent, ex-DEA agent, now head of the DEA, and his personal war with the Mexican Cartels. At the beginning of this third book in the series, Art tries to retire but never gets the chance because his friends/enemies always have ways of sucking him back into the game.

His old nemesis, Adán Barrera—head of the Sinaloa Cartel—is missing, presumed dead. In his absence, the other factions of the drug cartel fight for power and territory, eventually leading to another bloody war on Mexican soil. Meanwhile, Big Pharma introduces painkillers to the world with false promises that they are non-addicting. These claims lead millions of Americans to drug addiction, driving them straight into the arms of the drug-slinging cartels now serving up Fentynol laced Heroin causing massive overdoses in every community. After realizing drug dealers will never vanish as long as they have customers, Art Keller takes his fight in another direction—a war that goes all the way to the POTUS.

Don Winslow, a master at his craft, has included everything in this explosive final book in the cartel series. We see the politicians in the U.S. emerge as wealthy, corrupt profiteers willing to do business with drug lords while they peddle a mountain of bull***t to the American people. We witness the poor of Central America, forced to starve in trash dumps they call home while gang members torture and rape them, then follow their desperate journeys north to El Norte. Some die, some make it, but all are damaged along the way. We see the injustice and impossible bureaucracy of the immigration system. Informative and vital, this book brings all the extraordinary characters in the series to a shattering and memorial end—a triumph for Mr. Winslow. ( )

Ho aspettato parecchio questo libro ma l'attesa è stata ripagata. Come ne "Il potere del cane", il primo libro dei tre, l'autore narra una storia romanzata ma realmente accaduta, i personaggi sono ispirati a controparti reali. Nell'ultima parte è divertente come venga raccontato ciò che stiamo vivendo in questi anni, Dennison è palesemente il biondo Presidente Usa che promette la costruzione del muro al confine con il Messico.

Don Winslow chiude la famosa trilogia sul narcotraffico in modo esemplare, il libro ti prende dal primo momento e non ti lascia più. Credo siano pochi gli scrittori capaci di mischiare cronaca e fiction, Winslow è uno di questi. E lo fa in modo eccezionale, con il suo stile inconfondibile. ( )

Mais il n’y a pas de mur, se dit Keller en souriant.
Et il n’y en aura jamais. Une frontière est une chose qui nous sépare, mais qui nous unit également ; il ne peut pas y avoir de véritable mur, de même qu’à l’intérieur de l’âme humaine aucun mur ne sépare les meilleurs penchants des pires.
