The Border

The Border by Don Winslow is fiction but reads like today’s headlines. The main character Keller is going after the world’s largest drug trafficking operation. It feels like trying to sweep back the ocean. The Mexican heroin traffickers have made a monstrous fortune on the backs of the opioid crisis. There are both moral and physical borders that play a role in the plot. There is a fair amount of violence; the unfortunate reality of the drug wars.
