These books are available by ordering online with bookshop.org, an online platform designed for U.S. independent bookstores. We choose them based on NEIBA (New England Independent Booksellers Association), Barnes & Noble, and bestseller lists found in newspapers (we use those who employ NPD, point of sale data and make clear their methodologies).

Don Winslow was born in Perryville, Rhode Island and like Christian McBurney, another BoP local writer, attended South Kingstown High School. Conceivably he surfed the wild shores of Matunuck, as some of his books describe the sport as someone who has lived it. His professions have ranged from private investigator to expert trial consultant. Winslow has earned several prestigious writing awards, filmmakers want his stories for manuscripts, and he writes and lives now also in California. He and his wife remain safe from the wild fires.
