City on Fire Author Don Winslow Interview

Don Winslow has been writing books for thirty years, which has included the internationally bestselling book The Cartel Trilogy (The Power of the Dog, The Cartel and The Border). He has a new book out which starts a new trilogy in City on Fire.

City on Fire is the first of three books in his latest trilogy with the following books coming out in 2023 and 2024. I had the pleasure of sitting down and chatting with Don Winslow about his book City on Fire, his writing process and why he decided after these two books to walk away from writing for good.

If you are Nashville Native, Don will be at the Bookstore Event at Salon @ 615 with Parnassus Books on Tuesday, May 3rd following the release of the book nationwide on Tuesday, April 26th. For More info click here.

City on Fire Book Synopsis

Two criminal empires together control all of New England.

Until a beautiful modern-day Helen of Troy comes between the Irish and the Italians, launching a war that will see them kill each other, destroy an alliance, and set a city on fire.

Danny Ryan yearns for a more “legit” life and a place in the sun. But as the bloody conflict stacks body on body and brother turns against brother, Danny has to rise above himself. To save the friends he loves like family and the family he has sworn to protect, he becomes a leader, a ruthless strategist, and a master of a treacherous game in which the winners live and the losers die.

From the gritty streets of Providence to the glittering screens of Hollywood to the golden casinos of Las Vegas, Danny Ryan will forge a dynasty.
