From Don Winslow, a #1 internationally bestselling author and “one of America’s greatest storytellers” (Stephen King), comes the first novel in an epic new triad. Exploring the classic themes of loyalty, betrayal, and honor, City on Fire is a saga that spans generations.
When a beautiful modern-day Helen of Troy comes between two criminal empires, a war is launched that will see them kill each other, destroy an alliance, and set a city on fire. Danny Ryan yearns for a more “legit” life and a place in the sun, but to save the friends he loves and the family he has sworn to protect, he becomes a leader, a ruthless strategist, and a master of a treacherous game. From the gritty streets of Providence to the glittering screens of Hollywood to the golden casinos of Las Vegas, Danny Ryan will forge a dynasty.
Don Winslow—former investigator, antiterrorist trainer, and trial consultant—is the author of 22 international bestsellers. Of his books, Savages was made into a feature film by Oliver Stone; The Power of the Dog, The Cartel, and The Border sold to FX to air as a major television series; and The Force is soon to be a major motion picture from 20th Century Studios.
