About the Book

Following the epic, ambitious, instant New York Times bestseller City on Fire, 'The Godfather for our generation' (Adrian McKinty), comes the dramatic second novel in an epic crime trilogy from Don Winslow, #1 internationally bestselling author of the Cartel trilogy (The Power of the Dog, The Cartel and The Border).


The city where dreams are made.

On the losing side of a bloody East Coast crime war, Danny Ryan is now on the run. The Mafia, the cops, the FBI all want him dead or in prison. With his little boy, his elderly father and the tattered remnants of his loyal crew of soldiers, he makes the classic American migration to California to start a new life.

A quiet, peaceful existence.

But the Feds track him down and want Danny to do them a favor that could make him a fortune or kill him.

And when Hollywood starts shooting a film based on his former life, Danny demands a piece of the action and begins to rebuild his criminal empire.

Then he falls in love.

With a beautiful movie star who has a dark past of her own.

As their worlds collide in an explosion that could destroy them both, Danny Ryan has to fight for his life in a city where dreams are born.

Or where they go to die.

From the shores of Rhode Island to the deserts of California where bodies disappear, from the power corridors of Washington where the real criminals operate to the fabled movie studios of Hollywood where the real money is made, City of Dreams is a sweeping saga of family, love, revenge, survival and the fierce reality behind the dream.

Praise for City on Fire:

'Blisteringly good; a fast-paced thriller and an intimate portrait of family dynamics ... The plot flies at a pace, the words punching as much as the characters' Weekend Australian

'An organised crime saga that sits somewhere between the intimate and the epic, between Mystic River and The Godfather, and stands with the best in its genre.' Sydney Morning Herald Fiction Pick of the Week

'A masterpiece' Christian White

'Winslow at his very best' Karin Slaughter

'Pure genius!' Jeffery Deaver

'Hugely entertaining ... with an emotional depth that lingers long after the book is finished' Kyle Perry
