Description

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.

Commentaires

"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)

Powerful masterpiece

Searing and savage, heartbreaking and shocking in equal measure. The opening chapters lure you in as forcefully as the smack so central to the story and the energy doesn't stop until the sad, final end. Superbly narrated with a cast of characters that reflect the complex mix of the great City, without becoming cliches. I thought nothing could top the tearful tragic love story of Mexico told through The Cartel, but this brilliant work is perhaps a greater masterpiece, a fine and fiery indictment of the world we live in. Best book I've read in ages.

Gritty tale of NYPD bad boys

Our main character is an egotistical dirty cop whose long and arduous slide into hell is documented in true Winslow detail. He is only able to escape by climbing over the backs of others sliding faster than him into the abyss. The suspense is all there as well as the violence and graphic language. None of the characters are very admirable especially for me who happens to have respect for the NYPD, but like Art Keller (The Cartel) there is a very believable grain of truth that runs through them. Recommended listen for those who like there grit served with a large portion of raw realism.

Denny Malone is a badass...

... but I expected this book to be much better having read the rave reviews. The Force chronicles the rise and fall of New York elite cop Denny Malone, tackling themes like corruption and the urban drug trade, but it does so without breaking any new ground. It's decent entertainment all the way through, but I must admit I was thoroughly underwhelmed.

The narrator does a good job of all the different accents and voices, but only really enforces the cliches and stereotypes (though only the author is really to blame for this).

Listen to this audio book if you are looking for a solid take on the dirty cop theme. If you are looking for something fresh, something other than cliches from a hundred books, movies and tv shows, look elsewhere.

Don Winslow is hailed as a master in the genre, but if that is indeed the case, his lesser collegues must write some awful books. I give it three stars only because it kept me interested enough to keep me listening to the end.

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.

Too many "he says"

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