CITY ON FIRE is the first book that I have read by Don Winslow; though I have my eye on THE POWER OF THE DOG, THE BORDER, and THE CARTEL for quite some time, I was thrilled to receive and review an advance paperback copy of CITY ON FIRE—an excellent introduction into the Winslow Crime Fiction Catalogue.
‘Two criminal empires together control all of New England.’
Soon the line between friend and foe blurs when a beautiful woman, the likes of Helen of Troy, enters the fold turning the Italians and Irish against one another.
As the body count builds, Danny must rise as a leader whilst struggling to take care of and protect his immediate and extended family from the mayhem and bloodshed that turns brother against brother.
As you delve into a book, as the reader, it’s essential (in my opinion) to reflect on or become familiar with, though possibly disturbing, the ideology of the period a book is set in—in this case, the late 80s.
Thank you, William Morrow (HarperCollinsPublishers), for providing me with an ARC of CITY ON FIRE at the request of an honest review.
