The final installment of Don Winslow's Cartel trilogy will be released on February 26th, but this is where it all began. Winslow is well-known for his meticulous first-hand research, and Power of the Dog showcases his talent for working these details into a compelling and moving narrative. This is no dry, journalistic article, but a deep, very human exploration of actions with consequences far beyond single lives.
