Publisher Description

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, Rhode Island, 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.

“City in Ruins is Don Winslow showing the rest of us how it’s done. The novel builds and builds, the drama, the suspense, our feelings for the central characters—and then everything comes together. Actually, everything explodes. It’s a beautiful, artful thing.”

— James Patterson, #1 New York Times bestselling author 


  • “Winslow has kept his footing throughout Ryan’s trilogy, with impressive results. Like very few of the gamblers who took their chances in Las Vegas, with City in Ruins, Winslow is going out a winner.”

    — St. Louis Post-Dispatch
  • “City in Ruins is an instant classic and some of the finest writing you’ll find in print today.”

    — Real Book Spy
  • “Bolstered by careful plotting and meticulous attention to character, Winslow’s ambitious narrative culminates with an exhilarating climax that beautifully wraps up the series’ many plot threads.”

    — Publishers Weekly (starred review)
  • “The follow-up to City on Fire and City of Dreams showcases everything that makes Winslow a spectacular writer: brilliantly realized characters, dialogue that rings true, and a story that explores the darkness that exists within each of us.”
