Written by T. Wenger

Don Winslow's "Savages" opens in the living room of a Laguna Beach house, headquarters of Ben and Chon's marijuana operation. The partners grow the best hydro money can buy. Business is brisk - and so profitable that Mexico's Baja Cartel is demanding a piece of the action. Ben and Chon resist the cartel's pressure until their best friend and playmate, Ophelia, is abducted and becomes a pawn in the BC's vicious quest. Propelled by anger, they launch a violent, serpentine plan to keep the BC off balance and begin no-holes-barred negotiations for O's release.

The author of more than a dozen novels, including Shamus-winner California Fire and Life, Winslow offers a raw, close-up view of an underground industry in which brutality and bloodshed are inherent, and loyalty to a cartel equals enslavement. With brilliance and humor, he tells the story from both sides of the border through the eyes and ears of each character, masterfully employing technology and current political, ethnic and social themes.

Choppy, disjointed writing style I liked the content of this boo

Choppy, disjointed writing style I liked the content of this book but hated the choppy, weird way Winslow writes. It is not even, flowing text, but choppy, disjointed little blurbs. Will see the movie but this is not a fun and easy read. Reader beware.

    Overall, I really liked this book. The writing style is pretty unconventional, you will either really like it or find it to be ultra frustrating. The story is a good one. My only complaint is that I found myself wanting to learn more about the characters.
