Description

Desperate for money to fund a new start, he makes a deal with the Drug Enforcement Agency to undertake a covert operation against a Mexican drug dealer.

Brooks is a pro at building suspense even if it plays out in some rather spectacularly yucky episodes, one involving a short spear that takes its name from “the sucking sound of pulling it out of the dead man’s heart and lungs. Irlandczycy udają się na zachód, najpierw do Las Vegas, potem do LA, gdzie Danny wchodzi w biznes filmowy, jednak stare demony i niezakończone sprawy nie dają o sobie zapomnieć.He then violates his own rules when he falls in love with a movie star and his whereabouts become fodder for the tabloids.

The story is well crafted but for a deus ex machina ending, and even that is enough of a shocker that readers may not mind. Interestingly, one of the affairs is between Peter Moretti and Cassandra Murphy even as their families are trying to kill each other. The whole Hollywood thing feels kind of humorous until it doesn’t because you just know it is all going to go wrong at some point and everybody and everything is coming down. City on Fire was the first Don Winslow book I read and I found it so engrossing, the characters so vivid, and the atmosphere so gritty, that I was hooked. There’s an attraction of pain to pain, a magnetism of hurt, a mutual recognition that creates a haven of understanding.My thanks to the author, Don Winslow, and the publisher, Harper Collins, for my advance copy of this book. Al igual que en ' Ciudad en llamas' los personajes son, en mi opinión, su punto fuerte, la historia que tiene detrás cada uno de ellos es asombrosa. Thankfully I consumed this in audiobook form (beautifully read by Ari Fliakos, who also read the first in the series) or I am sure I would not have cleaned or done laundry or walked anywhere during that time.
