Just loved it. Loved the first two books In fact couldn t wait for the final instalment This was a huge disappointment Story jumped all over the place, and it didn t have the same gripping flow as the prior two books And non stop bashing of the political right The constant anti Trump rhetoric and the far left spin was just monotonous I read to escape the partisan politics on the news every day However, if you enjoy continual Trump bashing and are left leaning, then perhaps you will enjoy the book Overall, the book is giant departure from the first two Would not recommend. No writer knows about drug cartels nor writes about them better than Winslow This is the third book of his trilogy The Power of the Dog, The Cartel, The Border , and it s terrific It follows a number of intertwined stories There s the wars among the various Mexican cartels for control of the drug trade in the various regions There s the tracing of the flow of heroin, from the poppy fields of Mexico to the dealers and users on the streets of New York There s the story of three children trying to make their way from the hell hole of Guatemala to the USA And there s the thinly disguised roman a clef of a U.S Administration, involved in money laundering and rife with corruption it s ineffective and harebrained efforts, including inhumane treatment of immigrants, to try and stem the flow of drugs across the Border.This is a book as current as today s news, must reading not only for Realists and blind eye Trumpers, but for everyone concerned with the drug, criminal and political world of today.Highly Recommended. Der letzte Teil der Trilogie um Art Keller und seinen Kampf gegen die Drogenkartelle bietet wieder eine ungeheure Vielzahl interessanter Personen und aufregender Geschichten, ist wieder gl nzend recherchiert und geschrieben, mit brutalen, aber auch ber hrenden Episoden, nie langweilig, gepr gt von der menschlichen Haltung des Autors Doch mir pers nlich war alles ein wenig zu viel des Guten Ich war froh, als ich den W lzer durchhatte, dennoch war ich nie in der Versuchung, das Buch einfach auf die Seite zu legen was ich oft genug mache, weil mir meine Lebenszeit zu wertvoll ist f r dummee B cher. Amazing conclusion to an incredible trilogy Don is a fantastic writer, whose knowledge of the drug trade and its political and social impact is unrivalled.
