Savages Summary

Savages by Don Winslow

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, sending 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. Savages is an ingenious combination of adrenaline-fuelled suspense and true-crime reportage by a master thriller writer at the very top of his game.

Savages Reviews

"Savages is Don Winslow's best book yet - a wickedly funny and smart novel, with a ripped-from-the-headlines story that gets your pulse racing as the story unfolds. Razor-sharp plot twists, a cast of ruthless antiheroes, and, of course, Winslow's superb adrenaline-fuelled prose make this scorching, drug-infused thriller an addictive and entertaining read" -- Janet Evanovich
"A spellbinding tour-de-force that is utterly impossible to put down. Savages is, bar none, the best novel I have read in years" -- Christopher Reich, author of Rules of Deception
"...a thoughtful, prescient satire on the war on drugs, packed with neat twists and funny-horrid set pieces. The characters stay with you, too." * Guardian *
"Savages is a wild ride...The language is limber and lean, the pace adrenalin-fuelled and the killers downright terrifying...Ben, Chon and their funny, nervy, best girl friend Ophelia are one chummy trio who will linger with you long after the final page." * Time Out *
"He has long been lauded by fellow crime writers as a man to watch. For the uninitiated, Don Winslow's prose style sits somewhere between Elmore Leonard and James Ellroy...Savages is Winslow on rip-roaring form, his most stylish, pacy and blood-soaked novel yet...A brilliantly clever game of cat and mouse...Savages is more vibrant, stylish and captivating then just about anything that comes from our dark, damp shores. A true thriller." * Mirror *
