Description

New York Times Bestseller

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).

Hollywood.

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.

        Blockbuster Baldacci takes a break with Simply Lies, forsaking his various series for the moment to write a stand-alone (a million-copy first printing). In Where Are the Children Now? Burke springboards from the Higgins Clark classic Where Are the Children? as a grown-up Missy and Mike rely on what they learned during their own childhood abduction to rescue Missy's snatched stepdaughter. In Graham's Shadow of Death, Amy Larson of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and FBI special agent Hunter Forrest head to Denver to find the lethal doomsday cult they tracked through Danger in Numbers and Crimson Summer. In Robert Ludlum's The Treadstone Rendition, Hood brings back Adam Hayes, who rushes in to help former partner Abdul Nassir and his family, who are terrified of both the Taliban and the rogue CIA contractors gone violent as the United States withdraws from Afghanistan. Mary Pat Fennessey's teenage daughter goes missing and a young Black man is struck and killed by a subway train on the same steamy night in 1974 Boston, and there are no Small Mercies as Mary Pat's hunt for Jules riles the Irish mob; following Lehane's multi-best-booked Since We Fell (150,000-copy first printing). Two cold cases are Standing in the Shadows in this latest from Edgar and CWA Dagger in the Library honoree Robinson; in 1980, Nick Hartley is suspected of killing his ex-girlfriend and spends a lifetime seeking the killer, while in 2019 a modern-day skeleton found at an archaeological dig keeps Detective Superintendent Alan Banks and his Yorkshire team busy. In Sandford's Dark Angel, Lucas Davenport's adopted daughter Letty poses as a rogue programmer for hire to help the Department of Homeland Security forestall the takeover of Minneapolis's power grid by some ominous hackers. While facing down angry competitors when he moves to the West Coast and its City of Dreams, young, widowed mob underboss Danny Ryan visits the set of a movie depicting his crew's involvement in the New England crime war and encounters the actress playing his late wife; following Winslow's New York Times best-selling series launcher, City on Fire (250,000-copy first printing).

        In 1988, Chris Calumbo, a lieutenant in the Providence, R.I., Italian mob, sets in motion a risky plan, in bestseller Winslow’s powerful sequel to 2022’s City on Fire. He brokers a deal with the Baja cartel for 40 kilos of heroin; gets his boss, Peter Moretti, and several other New England wiseguys to invest; and arranges for Danny Ryan, the Irish mob’s leader, to hijack the shipment. Calumbo tips the feds, who will bust Ryan and return the dope to the Italians (minus a cut, of course). What could go wrong? Ryan, a recent widower, winds up fleeing Providence and landing in San Diego with his 18-month-old son and elderly father. Ryan and his crew spread out and work anonymous jobs, keeping their heads down until they hear that their nemesis, Moretti, has been killed. In a surreal twist of fate, Ryan ends up in Hollywood, where he finds himself investing in a movie called Providence based on the war between Italian and Irish mobs, and he falls in love with the film’s beautiful, doomed starlet. This classically inspired mob story breaks no new ground, but fans of Dennis Lehane and Richard Price are sure to be well pleased. Agent: Shane Salerno, Story Factory.

        April 1, 2023
        A gangster heads to LA in this bleak sequel to City on Fire (2022). It's 1988. Recently widowed drug dealer Danny Ryan wants to "get the hell out of Rhode Island," where the victorious rival Moretti crime family wants him dead. He and a few buddies steal millions of dollars' worth of the Morettis' heroin, which he dumps into the ocean. Then they rob the gang of cold, hard cash, lots of it. But Danny won't kill anyone. "We came for the money, not a massacre, Danny thought. Tens of millions of dollars in cash to start new lives, not keep reliving the old ones." Then he and his pals head west to Tinseltown. More than anything else, he'd like to protect his young son, Ian, and raise him in a crime-free environment. Perhaps Danny's estranged mother, Madeleine, can help if he'll allow it. You'd think he'd keep a low profile, but instead he makes a series of blunders such as investing in a particular movie and boffing a famous actress. Thus, he forgets his old man's advice: "When you're on the run, you leave the skirts alone." Danny is, to play on the book's favorite profanity, effing inept. (Of course, if he does everything right there is no story, so there's that.) Instead of leaving his East Coast troubles behind, he brings them along where they metastasize into bloody violence. The story is well crafted but for a deus ex machina ending, and even that is enough of a shocker that readers may not mind. Along the way are a couple of eye-popping twists. And there are some great lines: "I thought Jesus died for my sins..." Danny muses. "Maybe my sins just maxed out Christ's credit card." And "Ned Egan has killed more guys than cholesterol." While the story can stand alone, readers might want to read City on Fire first, as it provides essential background and is the better story. There is a glimmer inside Danny Ryan suggesting he wants to become--could become--a good person if he can only survive. The story has no more violence than many other crime thrillers, but a sense of hopelessness progressively builds. Danny pisses off his enemies, has the FBI's attention, and brings heartbreak to Hollywood. He may not live to raise his 3-year-old son. Enjoyable despite a few flaws, but damn, it's dark.

        Starred review from February 15, 2023
        The second volume in Winslow's Danny Ryan trilogy delivers on all the promise of its predecessor, City on Fire (2021). We left Rhode Island mobster Danny on the run at the end of the first book, which brilliantly uses parallels to Homer's Iliad to portray a gang war between Italian and Irish mobs. The Homeric connection isn't as central here, but there are elements of both Aeneas and Odysseus in Danny's flight, as the defeated warrior leaves his own city on fire in search of sanctuary, embarking on a series of adventures along the way, including an unfortunate sojourn in Hollywood. Danny's stint as a movie producer blows his cover and lands him in the crosshairs of old and new enemies, leading to the kind of climactic conflagration that distinguishes Winslow's Cartel trilogy. Before that, however, the author makes time for some highly acidic satire about life in the goldfish bowl of Hollywood, but finally, this is a novel about bad men and women--"the thieves, the hustlers, the dealers, the racketeers, the killers"---trying to make room for a little goodness in their lives without endangering those they love. Like Dennis Lehane's Joe Coughlin trilogy, also about a New England gangster looking for but failing to find a separate peace, the Danny Ryan saga draws great power from its consummate portrait of a man whose unshakable humanity imperils him just as it offers the possibility of salvation. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Aided by Winslow's social-media presence, City of Dreams will join City on Fire atop most best-seller lists.
