Spare, clipped expository prose and hip, spot-on dialogue have propelled this visceral crime novel from Winslow to early critical acclaim that includes a starred review from Booklist. The New York Times describes Savages as a “startling bid for attention”.
“Savages is Don Winslow’s best book yet-a wickedly funny and smart novel, with and of course, Winslow’s superb, adrenaline-fueled prose make this scorching a ripped-from-the-headlines story that gets your pulse racing as the action unfolds. Razor-sharp plot twists, a cast of ruthless antiheroes, drug-infused thriller an addictive and entertaining read.” – Janet Evanovich
