Don Winslow

Best-selling author Don Winslow talks about his new novel, The Cartel, which spans the past decade of the Mexican-American drug wars. DEA agent Art Keller has been fighting the war on drugs for thirty years in a blood feud against  Adán Barrera, the head of the world’s most powerful cartel. But despite putting his life on the line to nab the arrest, the druglord escapes. Winslow based the character of Adán Barrera on real-life Mexican drug lord Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán Loera, who recently escaped from maximum security prison.
