‘The year’s best thriller’ The Times, Books of the Year

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

The war has come home.

For over forty years, Art Keller has been on the front lines of America’s longest conflict: The War On Drugs.

Now elevated to the highest ranks of the DEA, Keller finds himself surrounded by an incoming administration that’s in bed with the very drug traffickers that Keller is trying to bring down.

From the slums of Guatemala to the marbled corridors of Washington, D.C., Winslow follows a new generation of narcos, cops, addicts, politicians, and mere children fleeing the violence for the chance of a life in a new country.

The Border is an unflinching portrait of modern America, a story of – and for – our time.
