Book Description Reviews


See all titles by Don Winslow.

In affluent Laguna Beach, California, Ben and Chon manage a profitable marijuana business. However, the Baja Cartel wants to expand into the Laguna Beach theater of operations and two punk Americans will not prevent them.

Ben agrees with the Mexicans' assessment as he wants no trouble. However, former SEAL Chon, as Ophelia describes, has a "baditude" who does not mind a fight though he would also prefer a peaceful solution. The partners reject the foreign demands, but ignore the cartel until the Baja banditos go too far when they snatch O. They plan to take the war to the cartel as late night second half buffs Letterman and Leno in order to rescue O.

Don Winslow savages the American war on drugs (and immigration) with this wild bloody thriller. In between the flowing of red and profanity, celebrities and politicians are lampooned as capitalism at its oligopoly best. Mr. Winslow makes a case for more of the trade insanity of Second Amendment selling of weapons to the Mexican Cartels who sell drugs to the Americans and buy more weapons. Don't read on a full stomach, Savages takes no prisoners.

5 of 5 Savages - The Movie November 2, 2010
Reviewer: John from Tualatin, OR  
Just as I was finishing Don Winslow’s Savages I learned that he had agreed to co-write a script from the story with Oliver Stone.   He’s working on the first draft of the screenplay while Stone finishes Wall Street 2.  Several drafts are likely.

Winslow said that he wanted to "bust the crime-fiction genre open."  He believes that writers are becoming bound by definitions and sees it becoming increasingly difficult for an author to do anything new or different.  He considers Savages his most creative work yet.  

Savages has the potential to become a thrilling and powerful film. Stone has decades of experience so he’s got more than enough know-how to handle this material right. Not only is he directing, producing and co-writing Savages, he’s also putting up his own money to fund it, which shows that he really believes in the project.

Do yourself a favor - read Savages - you won't regret it!
