The long awaited sequel to "Power of the Dog", Don Winslow's epic novel about the drugwars set in the 1970's. The author picks up the story starting in 2004 with DEA agent Art Keller back to kill drug lord Adan Barrera who has just escaped from a mexican prison, much like the real "El Chapo".
The story shows Keller's relationship working with the DEA and with the mexican authorities, who he never knows who he can trust. The corruption rises to the top of the Mexican government and the power and influence of the cartels is all encompassing.
The parrallel story Of Adan and the cartel families is just as fascinating and truly frightening. A truly great novel, the Godfather of the war on drugs.
