4 Fantastic as always!WELSHSOLDIER | 12/04/2010 | See all WELSHSOLDIER's reviews (40)Don Winslow. Pick up one of his books and you know your in for a an entertaining ride. I've been a fan since reading California fire and life and Power of the dog (both of which i highly urge you to pick up and read). Winter of Frankie machine is right up there with his best. The story sound like your usual mobster shlick but i thoroughly enjoyed his take on a retired button-man who has some shady characters related to his past who want's him 'Sleeping with the fishes' if you will. Cannot praise this enough, what a great author. Every book you should try and get your hands on.
