The explosive, highly anticipated conclusion to the epic Cartel trilogy from the New York Times bestselling author of The Force

What do you do when there are no borders? When the lines you thought existed simply vanish? How do you plant your feet to make a stand when you no longer know what side you’re on?

The war has come home.

For over forty years, Art Keller has been on the front lines of America’s longest conflict: the War on Drugs. His obsession to defeat the world’s most powerful, wealthy, and lethal kingpin—the godfather of the Sinaloa Cartel, Adán Barrera—has left him bloody and scarred, cost him people he loves, even taken a piece of his soul.

Now Keller is elevated to the highest ranks of the DEA, only to find that in destroying one monster, he has created thirty more that are wreaking even more chaos and suffering in his beloved Mexico. But not just there.

Barrera’s final legacy is the heroin epidemic scourging America. Throwing himself into the gap to stem the deadly flow, Keller finds himself surrounded by enemies—men that want to kill him, politicians that want to destroy him, and worse, the unimaginable—an incoming administration that’s in bed with the very drug traffickers that Keller is trying to bring down.

Art Keller is at war with not only the cartels, but with his own government. And the long fight has taught him more than he ever imagined. Now, he learns the final lesson—there are no borders.

In a story that moves from deserts south of the border to Wall Street, from the slums of Guatemala to the marbled corridors of Washington, DC, Winslow follows a new generation of narcos, the cops that fight them, the street traffickers, the addicts, the politicians, money-launderers, real-estate moguls, and mere children fleeing the violence for the chance of a life in a new country.

A shattering tale of vengeance, violence, corruption, and justice, this last novel in Don Winslow’s magnificent, award-winning, internationally bestselling trilogy is packed with unforgettable, drawn-from-the-headlines scenes. Shocking in its brutality, raw in its humanity, The Border is an unflinching portrait of modern America, a story of—and for—our time.

Winslow was on e of my favorite authors. This is a great story ruined by political statements. Too bad the author chose too let his politics ruin it.

Wow could have been a great read but his political statements just absolutely ruined this book. It is ok to voice point of views but it was so overwhelming bias it took away from what was an interesting look at the danger of Mexican Cartels as an international danger and one that should be labeled as an enemy of the United States.

I have logged thousands of hours of audiobooks over the past several years, and this trilogy by Don Winslow, narrated by Ray Porter, is the best combination of writing and performance, that I have found. You won’t regret it.

Loved the 1st 2 books but this one was really all about his hate for Trump. Not saying i disagree but he ruined the book.

I really enjoyed the prior two books, I feel let down that the author felt it necessary to become a political nut job with what could have been a great read. This author has gone completely crazy and I am truly saddened that I will never read him again. You can be for the other party, you can dislike the candidate but to throw out slanderous lie after slanderous lie like you’re working for the Democratic Party or MSNBC is enough to make this former fan sick at heart.

I wonder if this author has the guts to write a sequel- he could build it around a fictional drug addict son of a president - maybe he could call him Brandon.

Worth the anticipation!!!! Winslow is one of my favorite authors! One reviewer complained about the authors partisanship. BS! This story is raw, entertaining as hell and steeped in reality. I love how Winslow uses an alternative idea of the corruption the president's son in law is involved in that is just as nefarious as the real president's son in law could be involved with. Great great story!
