"The explosive, highly anticipated conclusion to the epic Cartel trilogy from the New York Times bestselling author of The Force. What do you do when there are no borders?When the lines you thought existed simply vanish?How do you plant your feet to make astand when you no longer know what side you're on? The war has come home. For over forty years, Art Keller has been on the front lines of America's longest conflict: The War On Drugs. His obsession to defeat the world's most powerful, wealthy, and lethalkingpin--the godfather of the Sinaloa Cartel, Adan Barrera--has left him bloody and scarred, cost him people he loves, even taken a piece of his soul. Now Keller is elevated to the highest ranks of the DEA, only to find that in destroying one monster he has created thirty more that are wreaking even more chaos and suffering in his beloved Mexico. But not just there. Barrera's final legacy is the heroin epidemic scourging America. Throwing himself into the gap to stem the deadly flow, Keller finds himselfsurrounded by enemies--men that want to kill him, politicians that want to destroy him, and worse, the unimaginable--an incoming administration that's in bed with the very drug traffickers that Keller is trying to bring down. Art Keller is at war with notonly the cartels, but with his own government. And the long fight has taught him more than he ever imagined. Now, he learns the final lesson--there are no borders. In a story that moves from deserts south of the border to Wall Street, from the slums ofGuatemala to the marbled corridors of Washington, D.C., Winslow follows a new generation ofnarcos, the cops that fight them, the street traffickers, the addicts, the politicians, money-launderers, real-estate moguls and mere children fleeing the violence for the chance of a life in a new country. A shattering tale of vengeance, violence, corruption and justice, this last novel in Don Winslow's magnificent, award-winning, internationally bestselling trilogy is packed with unforgettable, drawn-from-the-headlines scenes. Shocking in its brutality, raw in its humanity, Untitledis an unflinchingportrait of modern America, a story of--and for--our time"--
Looking for a hero : Staff Sergeant Joe Ronnie Hooper and the Vietnam War by Peter Maslowski( )

11 editions published between 2004 and 2009 in English and held by 1,843 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Widely acclaimed as the Vietnam War's most highly decorated soldier, Joe Ronnie Hooper in many ways serves as a symbol for that conflict. His troubled, tempestuous life paralleled the upheavals in American society during the 1960s and 1970s, and his desperate quest to prove his manhood was uncomfortably akin to the macho image projected by three successive presidents in their "tough" policy in Southeast Asia. This book extracts the real Joe Hooper from the welter of lies and myths that swirl around his story; in doing so, the book uncovers not only the complicated truth about a complex, gifted, and disturbed man, but also the story of how Hooper's war was lost in Vietnam, not at home. In the distortions, half-truths, and outright lies that mar Hooper's medal of honor file, the authors find a painful reflection of the army's inability to be honest with itself and the American public.--From publisher description
