San Diego Author Don Winslow Discusses New Novel, “The Force”


Don Winslow
, author, "The Force"


Don Winslow's previous crime thrillers have focused on Mexican drug cartels, now the New York Times-bestselling author, who lives in Julian, is turning his attention to corrupt New York City police officers.

Winslow's latest novel, “The Force”, follows a highly decorated NYPD detective sergeant who finds himself on the wrong side of the law.

"The Force" explores the ethical tightrope police officers walk and the rising tensions between law enforcement and the public.

The crime novel is based on years of research and interviews with New York City police officers. It is Winslow's 20th book.

Winslow, who worked as a private investigator in New York before becoming a writer, discussed Monday on Midday Edition why "The Force" is the book he wanted to write for years.
