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 the 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 who want to kill him, politicians who 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, D.C., Winslow follows a new generation of narcos, the cops who 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.

Praise For…


“The publication of [The Border] represents a landmark moment in crime fiction . . . It is Winslow’s remarkable ability to translate the utter fiasco of our 5-year War on Drugs into the most wrenching of human stories, tragedy seemingly without end, that gives this novel its unparalleled power.”
— Booklist (starred review)

“With clear-eyed determination and an almost Shakespearean grasp of human nature, Winslow takes readers on an unforgettable journey.”
— Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“I couldn’t put [The Border] down. Like everything Don Winslow writes, it grabs you on page one and never lets go. It’s also particularly timely given all that’s going on in the world.”
— Dan Pfeiffer, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Yes We (Still) Can: Politics in the Age of Obama, Twitter, and Trump

“Don Winslow’s epic trilogy about America’s longest war, which he launched with The Power of the Dog in 2005 and continued with The Cartel in 2015, comes to a powerful and troubling conclusion in his new novel, The Border.”
— Associated Press

“Jack Ryan’s got nothing on Winslow’s guy. An action-filled, sometimes even instructive look at the world of the narcos and their discontents.”
— Kirkus Reviews

The Cartel and The Force were high water marks in the genre in terms of ambition and reach, and Winslow has excelled again with the final novel in the trilogy, The Border. . . . This is Winslow at his sensational best.”

— Financial Times

“Winslow tells a hell of a compelling story.”
— LitHub
