Publisher's Summary

From the New York Times best-selling 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.
Detective sergeant Denny Malone leads an elite unit to fight gangs, drugs and guns in New York. For 18 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 Feds, and he must walk a thin line of betrayal, while the city teeters on the brink of a racial conflagration that could destroy them all.
Don Winslow's latest novel is a haunting story of greed and violence, inequality and race, and a searing portrait of a city on the edge of an abyss. Full of shocking twists, this is a morally complex and riveting dissection of the controversial issues confronting society today.


What the Critics Say

"Nobody understands the disaster of corruption better than Don Winslow. The Force exposes the dawning horror of how it eats into the best intentions." (Val McDermid, number one best-selling author of Out of Bounds)
"A stunner of a cop novel with dialogue, gritty New York setting and moral pincers all in the service of a devastating plot." (The New York Times)
"Intensely human in its tragic details, positively Shakespearian in its epic sweep - probably the best cop novel ever written." (Lee Child)

Powerful masterpiece

Searing and savage, heartbreaking and shocking in equal measure. The opening chapters lure you in as forcefully as the smack so central to the story and the energy doesn't stop until the sad, final end. Superbly narrated with a cast of characters that reflect the complex mix of the great City, without becoming cliches. I thought nothing could top the tearful tragic love story of Mexico told through The Cartel, but this brilliant work is perhaps a greater masterpiece, a fine and fiery indictment of the world we live in. Best book I've read in ages.
