Synopsis

Our ends know our beginnings, but the reverse isnt true All Denny Malone wants is to be a good cop. He is the King of Manhattan North, a highly decorated NYPD detective sergeant and the real leader of Da Force. Malone and his crew are the smartest, the toughest, the quickest, the bravest, and the baddestan elite special unit given carte blanche to fight gangs, drugs, and guns. Every day and every night for the eighteen years hes spent on the Job, Malone has served on the front lines, witnessing the hurt, the dead, the victims, the perps. Hes done whatever it takes to serve and protect in a city built by ambition and corruption, where no one is clean. What only a few know is that Denny Malone himself is dirty: he and his partners have stolen millions of dollars in drugs and cash in the wake of the biggest heroin bust in the citys history. Now Malone is caught in a trap and being squeezed by the feds, and he must walk the thin line between betraying his brothers and partners, the Job, his family, and the woman he loves, trying to survive, body and soul, while the city teeters on the brink of a racial conflagration that could destroy them all. This is the great cop novel of our time and a book only Don Winslow could write: a haunting story of greed and violence, inequality and race, crime and injustice, retribution and redemption, a story that reveals the seemingly insurmountable tensions between the police and the diverse citizens they serve. A searing portrait of a city on the edge of an abyss and of a courageous, heroic, and deeply flawed man who stands at that edge, The Force is a masterpiece of urban realism full of shocking and surprising twists, leavened by flashes of dark humor, a morally complex and utterly riveting dissection of modern American society and the controversial issues confronting us today.
