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, RI 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.… (mer)

Don Winslow's last book wraps up his trilogy about New England mobster Danny Ryan, who is now living in Las Vegas, having fled Rhode Island with the Feds, the mob and assorted others in hot pursuit. Ryan is now at the head of a casino and gaming empire and prospering as a result. Until his past catches up to him and Ryan is forced to make an alliance with his chief competitor. City of Ruins is a fitting end to Don Winslow's novel writing career. ( )

This one should be subtitled, a series of unlikely events.

The third books in Don Winslow's Danny Ryan trilogy is a engrossing read, as long as you allow the exceptional writing to blind you the unlikely and loosely hung together story.

For those of you unfamiliar, Ryan is former New England mobster who was forced to flee Rhode Island with the mob, the Feds, and assorted others hot on his heals. Magically, he overcame all of that and has now risen, in a short 10 years to a preeminent position in the Las Vegas gaming industry.

Danny overreaches though, and the kingdom that he's built begins to crash around him. But fear not, no challenge is too much for our hero.

The book, purportedly Winslow's last, is saved by his writing skills. In a lesser's hands, it would be dismissed as the work of a hack and the holes in the plot considered a sense of amusement. But Winslow is among the best in the use of language in spinning a yarn, and this one is no exception.

It'll give you a sugar high, but be careful the crash is right around the corner. ( )

Didn’t mind this one, but more of the same & predictable, sticks to his formula w/out fail, his last book & seems more focused on getting it over with ( )

“Trust?
Trust is children waiting for Santa Claus.”

Nearly the beginning 60 pages are a recap of how Danny Ryan made the move to Vegas, ala the Corleone family in the first Godfather. With the same exact goal, going completely legitimate. So just start reading with chapter 10, if you read the previous two books and have seen “The Godfather”.

I felt like this book was going to be a snoozer, but by Part 3, the story really hits the lift-off button!

“It’s a lesson they’ll learn - castles of sand don’t last.”

And, if I’m reading the Acknowledgements accurately, this is the author’s last book. Thank you Don Winslow for the many, many hours of reading enjoyment!

It’s incredibly difficult to maintain a great story throughout a series, but City in Ruins wraps up Don Winslow’s Dan Ryan trilogy with all of the elements that made the first two books a success. Book three picks up Danny running a hotel and casino empire in Vegas, but of course his past isn’t too far behind. Winslow also weaves in a few other storylines that keep the pages turning and help wrap things up very neatly. (Don’t worry — he also manages to throw in enough background information to help remember what happened without too much annoying rehash.) If you read the first two books in the series, do not miss City of Ruins; if you haven’t read the Dan Ryan trilogy and you enjoy thrillers — what are you waiting for? ( )
