The death and life of Bobby Z
Don Winslow's book, Morte e vita di Bobby Z, HarperCollins, tells us about the war raging over the control of drug-trafficking and illegal immigration along the US-Mexico border. A war where boundaries are hazy, involving crime gangs and police, and a large amount of compromise and corruption. A war in which Tim Kearney finds himself caught up – Kearney is a disgraced former military hero embroiled in small illicit dealings and, later on, in a shocking murder committed in jail. With the pace of Winslow's best novels, this book features mistaken identities, double- and triple-crossings, betrayals, violence, business and vendettas, as well as sensational twists and turns. An exemplary crime fiction novel, and much more – an ironic and blunt portrait of the dark soul of America and of the fragility of human life, which, however and despite everything, always offers a chance for recovery and redemption.
