Don Winslow with ‘City in Ruins’ at The Music Hall Lounge

The Music Hall Lounge

Don Winslow with his newest — and final — book City in Ruins.

In conversation with bestselling author Joe Hill!

Following City on Fire and City of Dreams, City in Ruins is the explosive, impossible-to-put-down conclusion to New York Times bestselling author Don Winslow’s epic, genre-defining crime trilogy and the final book of Winslow’s extraordinary career.

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.

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.

Don Winslow is the author of 25 acclaimed, award-winning international bestsellers, including seven New York Times bestsellers (Savages, The Kings of Cool, The Cartel, The Force, The Border, City on Fire, and City of Dreams). A former investigator, anti-terrorist trainer, and trial consultant, Winslow has announced that City in Ruins will be his final novel.
