These came to mind for #LetsTravelAugust #NewYork. To me these represent then (1970's) & now. Both are gritty & involve corrupt law enforcement. The Force in particular was one of the most engrossing crime novels I've ever read. (The audiobook is fantastic with Dion Graham!) So many books are written within the city, but I know New York is more than #NYC. I'd love some recs for books set in other areas of of the state!

Superb crime novel centring on Denny Malone, hero cop in an elite force who is also as corrupt as the city he nominally serves. As it nears its climax this novel suddenly seems to expand and become a howl of rage against the truly corrupt - the Brass, the property developers, the legal system and the city administration, compared to whom Denny's crimes pale into insignificance. Magnificent.

avgeyer Legitimately one of the best books I have ever read. 6mo

⭐️⭐️ 1/2

I thought initially I was going to rate this higher as the setup is strong and I was having flashbacks to one of my favourite TV series - The Wire. Unfortunately the middle third bogged down in complicated plotting and by the end pretty much every character was loathsome to me.
I will keep trying with Winslow and try The Cartel series next.

ClairesReads Oh bummer! 8mo
Redheadrambles @ClairesReads I think I prefer my crime on film ? This book sidetracked me into watching The Godfather trilogy again and well it suffered by comparison! 8mo

#winterwonderland So my day #snowballed into a happy oblivion when I came home to a package from @Centique that contained the sweetest card, some delicious candy, and this fabulous apron!!!! I am going to be holiday baking this week, this is perfect. Thank you so very much!!! Also, The Force is about an NYC cop caught in one lie and then it becomes a couple of more lies and then this book #snowballs into an action packed book you can‘t put down.

Reggie Honestly Paula this was so sweet, I can‘t thank you enough. I remember that picture of you and your daughter making that pavlova from last year. I‘ll send a pic when I make one off the recipe of this apron. Thanks again!! @Centique (edited) 14mo

I'm not usually one for reading police drama, but I picked up the ARC of this at work a while ago and finally got to reading it. It was really good!! A group of bad cops have control of their city--until they don't. Drugs, sex, murder, cops being investigated by the FBI...it's got it all. I've added his other books to my ever-growing TBR pile!

It doesn‘t get a whole lot better than this audiobook. Don Winslow writes it, and Dion Graham narrates this gritty tale of corruption and greed. There‘s a lot more to this book than your average crime thriller. One of the best. Overall rating: 4.66 stars

This is a fantastic book. Having said that, I gave it a ‘so-so‘ rating simply because this authors previous books, THE POWER OF THE DOG and THE CARTEL are mind-blowing, and this book, as great as it is, is not of the same caliber in my opinion. Still, this is a tense, gritty view of an elite police force in modern NYC.

This was the first Don Winslow book I read and it was quite different in its style to anything I‘ve read recently.
It‘s written in the 3rd person but I could practically hear Denny Malone‘s voice regaling his story. I think this is definitely written in a way that calls for a movie adaptation (low and behold here‘s one in the works) and I assume that‘s Winslow‘s style given that several movies of his books have already been made.
Continued below

LoveToReadLiveToRead This was a good story though and it had me gripped. If you‘re a fan of things like The Departed then this is probably a good shout. It‘s not one I‘m sure I‘ll remember for a long time though and it‘s not got me desperate to pick up Winslow‘s back catalogue but good entertainment. 2y

Day 1 - April TBR: I don‘t set monthly TBR lists because I never adhere to them. Reading is an act of spontaneity for me. Either that or there‘s whole lotta ‘book whispering‘ going on in my home. It feels like the book chooses me instead of me choosing it. Something speaks to me from the book & the next thing I know I‘m reading that book in place of what I had planned. That being said, I selected one book ONLY for this prompt. #ReadingResolutions

QuietlyLaura I don‘t follow a TBR list, either. I read whatever appeals to me in the moment. 2y
Bourriquet76 I‘m the same way. I have a huge TBR pile and read what inspiration tells me to. The only must-read for April is a NetGalley ARC. 2y

I love it when I‘m understood.💕 Oh yeah...Yay Don Winslow! He must have been a former detective, CIA or FBI Agent because he gets this type of novel just right. 2y

?? #Audiobook

I made it 6 hrs in, but couldn't continue due to the writing style..."He said blank" then "she said blank" over and over?. As an #Audiobook, it just didn't translate well being spoken out loud for me.

Which is a real shame since the narrator himself had on of the smoothest & richest voices I've heard - think Idris Elba.?

Maybe I'll try the print version instead at some point. But for now, I'm leaving this one alone.

kgriffith I had the same issue with Lock In! Apparently dialog tags are a Scalzi signature, but doesn‘t work well in audio. 2y

22 #Audible hours last month, not bad! A good chunk was due to The Force by Don Winslow. I give it 4 stars! It's about the demise of a dirty NYPD cop & his team. Although I was annoyed by the characters' cognitive dissonance at times, everything was not what it seemed, & I developed some empathy for Denny Malone. Dion Graham was an excellent narrator. This is going to be a movie & I hope Jon Bernthal (The Punisher) is cast as Denny. #audiobook

I had 80 pgs left going into work tonight. With all the story induced adrenaline pumping through my veins, I thought if I walked the casino floor faster, time would go faster so I could finish this on my break. Denny Malone, a dirty NYC cop, tells you his tale of how a good cop making his neighborhood safe turns bad. In the end, street politics, street justice, the high brass bureaucracy, and hypocrisy leaves no one clean. Soo ******* good!!!!

An interesting story. Danny Malone, a NYC Homicide Detective is seriously flawed yet not a completely despicable individual. Don Winslow did a great job of writing a story and character that to me, seemed much more human, flaws and all, then a lot of stories based on bad cops. The ending is not totally unexpected and yet did have some surprising twists. I listened to this and the narrator, Dion Graham, did an amazing job.

Don Winslow's police thriller is a gripping tale of corruption, politics, racial violence and the struggle to stay clean in a dirty city and although there's nothing new in the storyline, it has a wonderful narrative voice and is told with a real sense of place that had me gripped from beginning to end and is only let down by one double deal too many at the end.

The Force is a brutal, but fascinating look at a dirty cop quickly getting in over his head. Its a pessimistic world where everyone is crooked and out for their own gain. The government, the police, they're all as bad as the criminals they claim to go after. There is a lot of intrigue and fun twists. I had no problem powering through this 400+ page during the #BTAT17
