The Cartel trilogy of books by Don Winslow:
- The Power of the Dog
- The Cartel
- The Border

These fiction novels focus on America's war on drugs in Mexico and Central America, the rise/fall of the drug cartels, and the impact these events have on the main character's (DEA agent) life.

I have finished the first 2 books and am 1/3 of the way through the third book. The books were highly recommended on a number of websites so I checked it out from the local library. Apparently, FX picked up the rights to produce a TV series based on the books in 2019 but I haven't seen anything more about the TV series yet. I am guessing that COVID has slowed production.
