Editorial Reviews

Savages is full of wild-card moves.... Its wisecracks are so sharp, its characters so mega-cool and its storytelling so ferocious...thanks especially to Mr. Winslow's no-prisoners sense of humor. Janet Maslin, The New York Times
“Narrator Michael Kramer’s performance is perfect for the story, which delivers a gritty portrait of the border drug trade of Laguna, California. His narration engages listeners in the nonstop action and depicts credible characters on all sides of the drug wars. Savages is an audio experience that lives up to its name. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
“A revelation…Every bit as savage as its title…This is Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid on autoload.” Stephen King, #1 New York Times bestselling author
“Winslow’s marvelous, adrenaline-juiced roller coaster of a novel…is both a departure and a culmination, pyrotechnic braggadocio and deep meditation on contemporary American culture.” Los Angeles Times
