A lot of good stuff here, but nothing we haven’t seen before. I loved this book!

So this began brilliantly, even better than The Power of the Dog, Winslow describes Frankie’s ordinary life with real skill and emotion. He owns a bait shop on San Diego pier, supplies fish to the best local restaurants and has a property rental portfolio. This was a fun book. What I love most about the book is the character that Winslow has created in the protagonist, Frank Machianno. Frankie is on the run, trying to survive while also trying to learn who has set him up.

I love the way Don Winslow writes. Thanks for telling us about the problem.

The Winter of Frankie Machine by Don Winslow

Things get exciting at this point. I liked Frankie, but his youthful carelessness about killing stopped me from fully believing he is a reliable narrator. Frankie has a whole career as a mob hitman behind him, but we’re supposed to believe he’s all shook up by a bunch of very ordinary crimes committed by generic “corrupt” DC politicians.


Get to Know Us. He runs a bait shop down on the pier; he wholesales fish, and he has a few onvierno properties. I loved this book when it was first published inand I enjoyed it even more, re-reading it nine years later.

Having worked in a bait shop myself during a college summer I can totally relate to the Zen nature of selling worms. This is the guy who runs a bait shop on one invierrno San Diego’s piers. If you like this try: I can hardly wait maxhine read this book again in another few years.

This book gave me a new love for mafia books. Yes, it’s a collection of cliches: That’s all I’m coughing up for the plot of this winlow. Frankie bends the rules of English and would inspire eye rolling among the prose police but it is not quite as “millennial” as Savages cringe. Winslow’s examples from features to temperatures. The writing is excellent.

El Invierno de Frankie Machine

Description Frankie Machianno, a hard-working entrepreneur, passionate lover, part-time surf bum, and full-time dad, is a widely recognized pillar of his waterfront community. I thought this was a terrific book. How does one young kid becomes a hitman for the Mob? Someone out of his past wants him dead, and Frank has no idea who or why. The title is a good indicator of the power and subtlety of this book, its double meaning highlighted as you take a ride with Frankie Machine, a 62 year old retired hitman, through his life of crime.

This, he said, is dukkha-suffering.

We hear a lot about surfing, but never get the feel of the good times or the music. My very first novel by Don Winslow, innvierno definitely not the last one. It’s a most excellent read. In other words, life is pretty damned good until suddenly the bad old days rear their ugly head.

Like those two iconic gangsters, Frankie balances his life as a violent criminal with a practical and affectionate concern for his family, immediate and extended.

This is actually twofold. Spelling may be off as I was audio This was a fun book.

His only recourse is to follow the trail of the assigned hit back up the chain and see where it leads. When a contract is put out on his life he is pulled back in and is desperately trying to figure out the what and why of it all.

It’s a rare thriller that will leave readers rooting for a hit man, but this is definitely one. May 11, Lyn rated it it was amazing. My brother in law passed it on to his friend that never ever read and he credits this book with getting him into reading.

Anyone who had not been to these places before would be able to grasp what they are like based on Mr. I really enjoyed this short novel about a retired mafia hitman and his forced re-entry into the life that he used to know. The prose is one of the best things about the novel, and the main reason I will continue to read Winslow novels, although I wish he would use a little less acronyms PCH stand for Pacific Coast Highway, I thinkbut probably this is my own peeve and Californians really enjoy shortening all official names.

The fun part about this book is that Frankie Machine is a great anti-hero to root for even though he has his share of demons in his closet. Someone is trying to kill him and the list of killers is long and he has little time to find who and why this is happening. Would you like to tell us about a lower price?
