City on Fire – Staff Review – Haley

City on Fire By Don Winslow (Request)(CloudLibrary)

Don Winslow translates his love for classic literary tales, like The Iliad, and turns it into a contemporary saga set in his hometown of Providence, Rhode Island. Together the Irish and the Italians have been controlling criminal activity in New England, until a beautiful woman comes between them and ignites a war.
“City on Fire” is a true crime family novel set in the 1980s with all the drama, suspense, and authentic dialogue Winslow is known for. It is a fast paced, mob story with likeable characters who are gritty and unapologetic. If you are a fan of his previous novels, or of stories like The Godfather, this is a must read.
