From the #1 internationally bestselling author of the Cartel Trilogy, The Force, and Broken comes the first novel in an epic crime saga about the Irish and Italian crime syndicates in America during the 1980s and 1990s. ' One of America' s greatest storytellers' Stephen KingProvidence, RI, 1986. Twenty-nine-year-old Danny Ryan is a hard-working longshoreman, loving husband, loyal friend, and occasional "muscle" for the Irish crime syndicate that oversees much of the city. He yearns for something more and dreams of starting over fresh, someplace far away. But when a modern-day Helen of Troy triggers a war between rival mob factions, Danny is embroiled in a conflict he can' t escape. Now it is up to him to step into the breach to protect his family, the friends who are closer to him than brothers, and the only home he' s ever known. Exploring classic themes of loyalty, betrayal, honor, and corruption on both sides of the law, City on Fire is a contemporary Iliad from Don Winslow, "America' s greatest living crime writer" (Jon Land, Providence Journal). ' Is there any doubt that Don Winslow' s the greatest? ' New York Times' One of the best thriller writers on the planet' Esquire
