Reviews

[Winslow] is an excellent crime writer. He writes in the simplest, clearest, most spare way of anybody I've read. He's been honing it for years. * Evening Standard *
Packing more of an emotional heft than Savages, it's written in the leanest prose possible, with a single-word paragraph being nothing unusual but managing to say more than you'd expect. -- Alastair Mabbot * Herald *
A brilliant, hypnotic novel...A considerably more ambitious book than Savages, seeking to map out not only the history of Savages' weird love triangle, but also to cast a panoramic eye over the whole history of the drug trade in California from the 1960s onwards. And Winslow fulfils those ambitions fantastically well, with a stylistic swagger and bucketloads of empathy to go with a scintillating, perfectly executed crime-novel plot...Delivered in the sleekest, most sinewy prose you're ever likely to read. At times, The Kings of Cool verges on a kind of steel-tipped poetry, providing flashes of insight from perfectly carved sentences. It is a simply stunning novel. -- Doug Johnstone * Independent on Sunday *
An epic prequel to Don Winslow's Savages . . . Winslow writes the kind of books that Tarantino might- if he had a heart. -- Julia Handford * The Telegraph *
American author Don Winslow is so good at capturing LA slacker speak...[His books] are always superb and The Kings of Cool - a new prequel to the brilliant Savages may be his best yet * The Sun *
