City of Dreams

City of Dreams by Don Winslow is the follow-up to his 2022 crime thriller City on Fire, so be sure to pick that book up first before delving into this much-anticipated sequel. City of Dreams picks up the saga of dueling Irish and Italian crime families in Providence, Rhode Island in 1988, with the Irish mob leader Danny Ryan involved in a convoluted heroin deal that goes wrong. Danny flees to Hollywood, where he gets involved with a movie that bizarrely mirrors the real-life drama he’s left behind on the East Coast--or has he?
