''You can''t ask for more emotionally moving entertainment'' Stephen King A riveting collection of original fiction from the revered #1 international bestselling author of The Cartel trilogy and The Force No matter how you come into this world, you come out broken...

In Broken , Winslow creates a world of high-level thieves and low-life crooks, obsessed cops and jaded private detectives, dope dealers and government agents, bounty hunters and fugitives.

A powerful, gripping collection of tales that will become classics of crime fiction, Broken is Don Winslow at his nerve-shattering, heartbreaking best.
