The Power of Winslow
June 30th, 2015
A master storyteller, surpassing the likes of Coben, Patterson, Connelly and King in stylistics, characterization, and verisimilitude, Winslow is a "must-read" in the crowded marketplace of popular fiction. "The Power of the Dog" will not disappoint.

I thought this was going to be your average everyday thriller. Lucky me. It is a powerful novel - it starts with a bang then works its way back to the beginning, telling the story of how that big bang came to be -- that describes what I now believe to be the true history of the drug world. If you liked Blow, or Traffic, you will LOVE this book.
