Produktinformation

Produktbeschreibungen

Pressestimmen

"The Power of the Dog throws shadows a mile long. Fearless, humane, aesthetically fervent, it's also passionate, unapologetic, gorgeously written and unquestionably authentic." (Dennis Lehane)

"Don Winslow is the kind of cult writer who is so good you almost want to keep him to yourself." (Ian Rankin)

"The first great dope novel since Dog Soldiers thirty years ago. It's frightening and sad, with a superbly sustained intensity. A beautifully compressed vision of hell, with all its attendant moral madness." (James Ellroy)

"A damn good read. If you've never read Don Winslow, start now." (Val McDermid)

"It is impossible in a few words to do [it] justice ... It's a huge book, both in size and scope." (Sunday Telegraph)

Werbetext

Don Winslow's break-out novel. A hugely ambitious, page-turning thriller of power and revenge, in the tradition of the Great American Novel.

'This is Winslow's masterpiece (so far) and should have a place on every crime freak's bookshelf. Superb!' Independent on Sunday

The novel opens with an attack by joint Mexican forces and the American DEA on a Sinaloa poppy field, the poppies burn and Art Keller, the DEA agent and protagonist, sitting on a ridge is looking down into the red burning valley. He reflects how Hieronymus Bosch would depict fighting the War on Drugs. He has flash backs of the Vietnam war, of the exfoliant called Agent Orange and the notorious Operation Phoenix designed by the CIA, and Keller was one of these Company Cowboys who were active in the program. Now he is part of Operation Condor (not to be confused with the historic Operation Condor, implemented by right wing South-American dictatorships in the 1970s) spraying the poppy fields with 24-D from helicopters.

Power of the Dog follows five equally important characters through 35 years charting the evolution of the Mexican "trampoline" and the Sinaloa cartel to an internationally powerful organization. According to Winslow, it took him nearly six years of research to combine modern historic facts and fiction to describe the War on Drugs which is by far America's longest war since President Nixon's declaration in 1973. More than a trillion dollars und hundreds of thousand murders later, drugs are more plentiful than ever. The author realistically describes how the War on Drugs has created multinational corporations loaded with sociopaths, because in a world where violence rules the scum floats to the top.

This novel, beefed up with hard-nosed journalism, delivers a horrifying dose of reality in the theater of violence as Art Keller follows the advances of the drug economy from the introductory Operation Condor in Sinaloa in1975 to Guadalajara in 1984 and El Salvador in 1985, Mexico and the NAFTA agreement in 1992, and through the late nineties.

For a long time now I find it very hard to get my hands on books that are of real high quality. The same ideas are being recycled over and over, often the language is flawed, the characters are cliché, unbelivable or the entire story reeks of education of the reader and the agenda of the author.

None of that will you find in "the power of the dog". It's really great to read, nice, original wording, great dialogs and of course the whole scope of the storry is just magnificent. The characters apear natural, believable, sophisticated, their actions reasonable and interesting because often unexpected. You learn something about a part of this world and its history ... it's just great, really.

The book is about the Mexican (and to some extend rather Middle- and Southern-American) drug "business" and the involvent of the US efforts against it - how it all came to the current situation. The historical sweep reaches as far back as to the end of the Vietnam war in the early seventies. It includes various agencies, countries, US administrations ... the whole enchilada.

On the other hand this is not (just) a fact book. This is also a very entertaining criminal story. You follow the "hero" from the start of the DEA and his first days in Mexico through the destruction of the old cartel, the establishment of the new federation of cartels and so on ... it's a very personal story - his life, his actions, mistakes, victories, ... family life, everything. The author has really succeeded in presenting the big picture by telling the story of a single man.

Of course there's one problem: I can't tell how accurate the whole thing is. The impression I got is that everything was very well researched and presented in detail.

Frankly speaking the only reason why I bought this book was, because my mother donated the sequel The Cartel to me at my birthday. The last book of Don Winslow that I read was The Dawn Patrol and I really hated it, because it had a lack of drive and was anything but not compelling. But therefore The Cartel was a gift of my mom I bought The Power of The Dog, because it wanted to know the whole story and not only the second half.

... and I really loved the story. In my whole life I have never read a book before that was written in such an interesting way. I think there are already a lot of reviews on Amazon regarding this book and it is not necessary that I describe the content. So I'll just mention that I bought it already for two of my friends and finish my writing with the advice to buy & read this book.

Wie immer zeichnet Don Winslow wunderbare Charactere, denen man sehr nah ist. Der Humor und Sprachwitz von "Savages" blitzt hier eher am Rande auf, denn das Thema ist viel zu ernst. Teilweise braucht man starke Nerven, denn die Schilderungen von Gewalt sind sehr realistisch. Und vor dem Hintergrund, dass Don Winslow wohl weiß, wovon er spricht, muss man manchmal ganz schön schlucken. Die Handlung hat hin und wieder ein paar Längen, aber man darf natürlich drauf vertrauen, dass Winslow am Ende alle Fäden seiner diversen Handlungsstränge wieder zusammenbringt. Seine Figuren sind einfach genial. Schön mehrschichtig und immer interessant.

This book is one of the best books I've ever read in my life and I've been reading a lot during the past 50 years.
Winslow has a really refreshing stile of writing and it never got boring for a second.
After reading this book I got myself all of his other books which all have been a great read.
Can't wait for the next one.
