Publisher Description

Instant New York Times Bestseller!

“The final shattering installment in a gangland trilogy to equal The Godfather. If you like Scarface and Goodfellas, this is where it’s at.” — Stephen King

“City in Ruins is Don Winslow showing the rest of us how it’s done. Winslow has saved the best for last.” — James Patterson

“The Godfather for our generation.” — Adrian McKinty

From New York Times bestselling author Don Winslow comes City in Ruins – his epic, genre-defining crime masterpiece . . . and the final novel of Winslow’s extraordinary career.

Sometimes you have to become what you hate to protect what you love.

Danny Ryan is rich.

Beyond his wildest dreams rich.

The former dock worker, Irish mob soldier and fugitive from the law is now a respected businessman – a Las Vegas casino mogul and billionaire silent partner in a group that owns two lavish hotels. Finally, Danny has it all: a beautiful house, a child he adores, a woman he might even fall in love with.

Life is good.

But then Danny reaches too far.

When he tries to buy an old hotel on a prime piece of real estate with plans to build his dream resort, he triggers a war against Las Vegas power brokers, a powerful FBI agent bent on revenge and a rival casino owner with dark connections of his own.

Danny thought he had buried his past, but now it reaches up to him from the grave to pull him down. Old enemies surface, and when they come for Danny they vow to take everything – not only his empire, not just his life, but all that he holds dear, including his son.

To save his life and everything he loves, Danny must become the ruthless fighter he once was – and never wanted to be again.

Ranging from the gritty back rooms of Providence, RI to the power corridors of Washington, DC and Wall Street to the golden casinos of Las Vegas, City in Ruins is an epic crime novel of love and hate, ambition and desperation, vengeance and compassion.

dj-wa ,

Read ALL three! Great trilogy.

Darn sad that this was Don’s last book and only a trilogy. I, for one wish for more Danny Ryan but it wasn’t to be. Maybe a follow up with Ian later on??

stone crap ,

I’m a providence guy

So these books especially reached out to me. This one was a little all over the place, hence the three stars, and if one more writer spells the Italian slang word “Madonna,” “Marone,” I’m gonna lose my lunch! But all things considered it was a good Irish/Italian mob story complete with a move to Vegas. Should have hired Tom Hagen tho!

Cut wood ,

Great ending to a great series

Read the series. It’s well written, the characters are interesting, the story is good. What else is there to say. Very enjoyable
