'Probably the best cop novel ever written' - Lee Child

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Cartel - winner of the Ian Fleming Steel Dagger Award for Best Thriller of the Year - comes The Force, a cinematic epic as explosive, powerful, and unforgettable as The Wire.

Everyone can be bought. At the right price...

Detective Sergeant Denny Malone leads an elite unit to fight gangs, drugs and guns in New York. For eighteen years he's been on the front lines, doing whatever it takes to survive in a city built by ambition and corruption, where no one is clean.

What only a few know is that Denny Malone himself is dirty: he and his partners have stolen millions of dollars in drugs and cash. Now he's caught in a trap and being squeezed by the FBI. He must walk a thin line of betrayal, while the city teeters on the brink of a racial conflagration that could destroy them all.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'This stands out by a mile ... fresher, faster, funnier and truer ... bursting with life, lousy with death, it is because it tells the truth, in all its ugliness, that this novel is so exhilarating' - Daily Telegraph

'Hard-hitting ... one of the great works of fiction about the police ... superbly chronicled' - The Times

'There won't be a better cop novel this year than The Force by Don Winslow. Not next year, or the year after that, either' - Linwood Barclay

'Stephen King, James Ellroy and Lee Child see Don Winslow as one of their number, and he confirms his right to belong in this elite with The Force ... a panoramic picture of a criminal justice system permeated by corruption, cronyism and lies' - Sunday Times

'Sprawling and visceral' - Financial Times

'Breathtaking. Think of TV series The Sopranos ... told in majestic prose ... this is without question among the finest ever police novels.' - Daily Mail

'A brutal, gut-punching story' - Independent

'Almost Shakespearean' - Spectator, Books of the Year

'Shocking and shockingly convincing ... sinewy, flexible, raw and full of wit. This novel is as entertaining as the best crime fiction must be, but it is also moving' - TLS

'Don Winslow's magnificent novels have positioned him as the next big-hitter of crime writing ... Gripping' - Metro

'Intensely human in its tragic details, positively Shakespearian in its epic sweep - probably the best cop novel ever written' - Lee Child

'Mesmerizing, a triumph. Think The Godfather, only with cops. It's that good' - Stephen King
