The stunning new novel by the acclaimed author of The Power of the Dog ('so good you want to keep him to yourself' Ian Rankin), bought for the movies by Robert de Niro, who plans to play Frankie himself.
Don Winslow has always had the crime beat. He has smuggled money in South Africa, sold safari tours in China, and simulated hostage exchanges whilst working as a 'mock' terrorist for the Institute for International Studies. He has also worked in the theatre, film and as a private investigator. More recently he has settled down to work as an independent consultant in issues involving litigation arising from criminal behaviour. Also a prolific writer, his novels include The Death and Life of Bobby Z, California Fire and Life and The Power of the Dog.
"Praise for The Power of the Dog: No one since James Ellroy has conveyed the morally troubled heart of the American dream with such savage aim... A future classic." * The Guardian * "Don Winslow is the kind of cult writer who is so good you almost want to keep him to yourself" -- Ian Rankin "The first great dope novel since Dog Soldiers thirty years ago. It's frightening and sad, with a superbly sustained intensity. A beautifully compressed vision of hell, with all its attendant moral madness" -- James Ellroy "A damn good read. If you've never read Don Winslow, start now" -- Val McDermid "It is impossible in a few words to do [it] justice... It's a huge book, both in size and scope" * Sunday Telegraph *
