Waterstones Says

The first instalment of an expansive new trilogy from one of the world’s most eloquent crime writers, City on Fire essays the trials and tribulations of a Rhode Island longshoreman caught in the middle of a deadly mob turf war.

The new thriller from Don Winslow - the start of a brand new trilogy

Providence, 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, honour, and corruption on both sides of the law, City on Fire is a contemporary Iliad from Don Winslow.
