Don Winslow – City on Fire

City on Fire is the first in an epic crime trilogy about crime syndicates in 1980s and 1990s America. Irish and Italian criminal empires together control all of New England until a war erupts that will leave only one standing.

Danny Ryan yearns for a more “legit” life and a place in the sun. But as the conflict stacks body on body and brother turns against brother, Danny has to rise to become a leader, a ruthless strategist, and a master of a treacherous game in which the winners live and the losers die.

Exploring the classic themes of loyalty, betrayal, and honour, City on Fire is a contemporary masterpiece
