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.
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 THE FORCE is mesmerizing, a triumph. Think The Godfather, only with cops. It’s that good.
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.
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!
Intensely human in its tragic details, positively Shakespearian in its epic sweep – probably the best cop novel ever written.
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.
