Unfortunately Don Winslow, while still a crime writing force,
seems to be writing more for the big screen rather than
a great book read. Read his The Cartel, where the first
100 pages of an engrossing tale will hold your
feet to the fire, whereas in The Force you
may slog for the first 100 pages
enduring a main character
that seems cut right
out of one played
by Josh Brolin
Fine in the film.
But it picks up by about page 200
in a book that goes over 400 pages.
If you're a crime writer fan, you'll hang in there.
Expect a movie.
