A breakthrough novel that pits young kingpins against a Mexican drug cartel, Savages is a provocative, sexy, and sharply funny thrill ride through the dark side of the war on drugs and beyond. Part-time environmentalist and philanthropist Ben and his ex-mercenary buddy Chon run a Laguna Beach-based marijuana operation, reaping significant profits from their loyal clientele. In the past when their turf was challenged, Chon took care of eliminating the threat. But now they may have come up against something that they can't handle--the Mexican Baja Cartel wants in, and sends them the message that a "no" is unacceptable. When they refuse to back down, the cartel escalates its threat, kidnapping Ophelia, the boys' playmate and confidante. O's abduction sets off a dizzying array of ingenious negotiations and gripping plot twists that will captivate readers eager to learn the costs of freedom and the price of one amazing high. Following "the best summertime crime novel ever" ( San Francisco Chronicle on The Dawn Patrol ), bestselling author Winslow offers up a smash hit in the making. Savages is an ingenious combination of adrenaline-fueled suspense and true-crime reportage by a master thriller writer at the very top of his game.

display_description From the New York Times bestselling author of The Cartel and The Force

A New York Times, Entertainment Weekly, and Chicago Sun-Times Favorite Book of the Year

"A revelation...This is Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid on autoload." —Stephen King, Entertainment Weekly

"Startling...Stylish...Mega-cool." —Janet Maslin, The New York Times

Ben, Chon, and O are twentysomething best friends living the dream in Southern California. Together they have made a small fortune producing premium grade marijuana, a product so potent that the Mexican Baja Cartel demands a cut. When Ben and Chon refuse to back down, the cartel kidnaps O, igniting a dizzying array of high-octane negotiations and stunning plot twists as they risk everything to free her. The result is a provocative, sexy, and darkly engrossing thrill ride, an ultracontemporary love story that will leave you breathless.
"A spellbinding tour de force that is utterly impossible to put down." —Christopher Reich
"This is the story of love's costs—and the acceptance of whatever that cost entails." —Randy Michael Signor, Chicago Sun-Times
"A wickedly funny and smart novel." —Janet Evanovich
"Winslow's marvelous, adrenaline-juiced roller coaster of a both a departure and a culmination, pyrotechnic braggadocio and deep meditation on contemporary American culture." —Sarah Weinman, Los Angeles Times
