Over the years that I have been hosting this program I cannot recall ever feeling like I could declare that a particular book is the hottest book of the summer. Well, I'm pleased to be able to finally say that this is it; "The Force" by Don Winslow is the hottest book of the summer and perhaps will prove to be the hottest book of 2017.
This story about an elite force of police officers in Manhattan who are authorized to possess wide latitude in curtailing drug dealers and gun runners and criminal cartels is filled with non-stop action and moral quandaries. You see these cops are heroes but they are also dirty and corrupt and morally compromised.
This story will blow you right off of your beach towel.
