Author Don Winslow in Conversation with Mike Stanton at The Columbus Theater


Please join us for this special night to celebrate Don Winslow's new book, City On Fire. Winslow will be in conversation with author, journalist and professor Mike Stanton.

With City On Fire, Winslow launches what will go down in history as one of the most ambitious crime trilogies ever written. Over the next three years readers will be transported from the gritty streets of PROVIDENCE to the glittering screens of Hollywood to the golden casinos of Las Vegas as Danny Ryan forges a dynasty and Don Winslow cements his title as “One of America’s greatest storytellers” (Stephen King).


About the book:

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 as 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.

About the author:
