    Don Winslow

    ''You can''t ask for more emotionally moving entertainment'' Stephen King A riveting collection of original fiction from the revered #1 international bestselling author of The Cartel trilogy and The Force No matter how you come into this world, you come out broken... In six intense, haunting short novels, Don Winslow returns to the themes that are the hallmarks of his acclaimed body of work - crime, corruption, vengeance, justice, loss, betrayal, guilt, and redemption - to explore the savagery and nobility that drive and define the human condition. In Broken , Winslow creates a world of high-level thieves and low-life crooks, obsessed cops and jaded private detectives, dope dealers and government agents, bounty hunters and fugitives. Diverse and richly drawn, these characters - some familiar, others new - are lost souls driving without headlights on the dark highway of modern America. Set in New Orleans and Hawaii, Southern California and south Texas, each story in this collection is distinctively Winslow, shaped by his trademark blend of insight, humanity, humor, drama, and consummate literary craftsmanship. A powerful, gripping collection of tales that will become classics of crime fiction, Broken is Don Winslow at his nerve-shattering, heartbreaking best.
