The Power of the Dog

by Don Winslow

Set about ten years prior to The Cartel, this gritty novel introduces a brilliant cast of characters.

Art Keller is an obsessive DEA agent. The Barrera brothers are heirs to a drug empire. Nora Hayden is a jaded teenager who becomes a high-class hooker. Father Parada is a powerful and incorruptible Catholic priest. Callan is an Irish kid from Hell's kitchen who grows up to be a merciless hit man.

And they are all trapped in the world of the Mexican drug FederaciĆ³n. From the streets of New York City to Mexico City and Tijuana to the jungles of Central America, this is the war on drugs like you've never seen it.
