Summary

A New York Times Book Review Editor’s Choice of the Week

An Audible Pick of Listeners' Favorites of the Month

'If you haven't read American writer Don Winslow, Broken is all the introduction you need ... [it] will make you laugh and cry ... Broken is devastating and brilliant.' Sydney Morning Herald

A riveting collection of six short novels from the New York Times bestselling author of The Force and The Border.

'Is there any doubt that Don Winslow is the greatest?' New York Times

In six intense novellas connected by the themes of crime, corruption, vengeance, justice, loss, betrayal, guilt and redemption, Broken is #1 international bestseller Don Winslow at his nerve-shattering, heart-stopping, heartbreaking best. In Broken, he creates a world of high-level thieves and low-life crooks, obsessed cops struggling with life on and off the job, private detectives, dope dealers, bounty hunters and fugitives, the lost souls driving without headlights through the dark night on the American criminal highway.

With his trademark blend of insight, humanity, humor, action and the highest level of literary craftsmanship, Winslow delivers a collection of tales that will become classics of crime fiction.

'A collection of six remarkable novellas ... The tales all unfold at a torrid pace that will leave readers both satisfied and wishing for more' Daily Mail

'A master of thrills shows his range, and his bite' New York Times

'Winslow's brisk, colorful prose and artful shorthand shine in this collection of six novellas' Vulture

'One of the best story collections I've read, period ... Together the stories make a potent bundle that can be read all at once, in any order, or one at a time, to savor like omakase from a sushi master' Criminal Element

PRAISE FOR DON WINSLOW:

'He's a master' Michael Connelly

'Winslow's the best' Stephen King

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“All six yarns feature Mr. Winslow’s talent for narrative thrust and linguistic economy.” Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
“This is an outstanding sextet in which—praise be!—‘love and loyalty trump the law.’ It is fast, furious, and very funny.” Sunday Times (London)
“Winslow, whose work includes a dozen of the finest crime novels written in the last twenty years, displays all of his strengths, including propulsive narration, compelling characters, and a tight, staccato writing style, in Broken, a collection of six remarkable novellas.” Associated Press
“A greatest-hits album but with all-new melodies: what could be sweeter?” Booklist (starred review)
“Six crime novellas from Winslow, who pays homage to Steve McQueen, Elmore Leonard, and Raymond Chandler…There are so many good lines in these yarns…Each story line will keep readers entertained with wit, humor, and occasional sadness…A great collection of short crime fiction.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
