Summer Reading

As if I didn’t have enough books already, I have decided to dig into Don Winslow’s dope-war books this summer. I’m only one third of the way through “The Power of the Dog” (2005) and have decided to buy into its continuation, “The Cartel” (2015).

Yes, it’s that good.

The Americans take a product that literally grows on trees and turn it into a valuable commodity. Without them, cocaine and marijuana would be like oranges, and instead of making billions smuggling it, I’d be making pennies doing stoop labor in some California field, picking it.” ― Don Winslow, The Power of the Dog
