“I’ve spent more time then I would have liked to, looking at atrocity videos, autopsies and talking to the families of victims, that kind of thing. Do I still flinch? Yes … but not as much as I should” - author Don Winslow talking about the research he’s done on the real-life violence perpetrated by drug cartels.

New York Times best-selling author Don Winslow began writing his first book about the U.S.-Mexico drug war 20 years ago. After six years of research, he released POWER OF THE DOG in 2005. Ten years later, he continued the story with THE CARTEL. And this year, the third and final part of the trilogy, THE BORDER, hit book store shelves. The novel debuted at number three on the New York Times fictional best-seller list.

Critics have compared Winslow’s trilogy to the works of Dostoevsky, Steinbeck and Shakespeare.

THE BORDER wraps up the saga that began in POWER OF THE DOG. But the story will live on in a new media, the cable network FX recently secured the rights to Winslow’s cartel trilogy and plans to turn the books into a television series.

THE BORDER is currently available everywhere books are sold. The TV adaptation of Winslow’s cartel trilogy is currently in development.
