Inhaltsangabe

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.

Critic Reviews

"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)

Off to a slow start...

The first chapters did not immediately capture me, then the story took hold of me and I could not put it down. Great speaker, fantastic performance, great complex story, fascinating and wirh great depth. I highly recommend it for readers who like soft macho hero behind the scenes cop work.

Can‘t wait for the movie

Book‘s better to read than on audio. Will be a great movie! A mix of the departed and the godfather.

Too many "he says"

Almost all dialog ends with,"says'. It gets really annoying. The story itself is interesting., read at a good pace.
