PositiveUSA Today\"[The Border is] the eerily prescient and scathing climax to what is quite simply the most important crime saga in modern literature ... never before has Winslow served as a kind of cultural soothsayer the way he does in The Border. And that is saying something ... The Border puts politics front and center. As equally unforgiving as its predecessors, it puts the onus square on the shoulders of the American public and asks you to consider some hard truths about addiction.\
Lars Kepler, Trans. by Neil Smith
PositiveThe Arizona RepublicThis is a straight-up story of good versus evil ... This is reliable and familiar, and it is done amazingly well. The book's chief attribute, however, is also its biggest shortcoming. It is fast ... The pace is so swift that the book doesn't allow for reflection. Its characters are reactive, conventional. And so, too, is the writing. A book this fast doesn't have time for self indulgence or nuance. That doesn't mean its bereft of intrigue ... Instead of disappointing, the book surprises.
