Part The Godfather, part The Wire, The Force is a Molotov cocktail of cops and corruption, where good guys are also bad guys, and police malfeasance isn’t just about skimming money off drug busts—it’s about … the corruption that comes when trying to do the right thing.
A stunner of a cop novel with dialogue, gritty New York setting and moral pincers all in the service of a devastating plot…. Winslow weaves a complex story around a detective who wants to stay clean even though he’s already dirty.
Don Winslow’s summer blockbuster, The Force, is ready-made for Hollywood… A big, fat book of fast-moving fiction… Riveting and scary — in a lot of ways.
Shocking authenticity is the lifeblood of Don Winslow’s The Force. I stopped everything I was doing to read it straight through. Detective Sergeant Denny Malone takes us on a searing journey through the corruption that lies at the heart of our justice system. I wish I’d written it!
Don Winslow’s novel The Force isn’t just one of the great New York City cop novels ever written. It is one of the great New York City novels ever written.
Intensely human in its tragic details, positively Shakespearian in its epic sweep – probably the best cop novel ever written.
Don Winslow’s THE FORCE is mesmerizing, a triumph. Think The Godfather, only with cops. It’s that good.
