Coperta “City of Dreams”

City of Dreams

Narator: Ari Fliakos

Durata: 8h 6m

Following the epic, ambitious, instant New York Times bestseller City on Fire, “The Godfather for our generation” (Adrian McKinty), comes the dramatic second novel in an epic crime trilogy from Don Winslow, #1 internationally bestselling author of the Cartel trilogy (The Power of the Dog, The Cartel and The Border). Hollywood. The city where dreams are made. On the losing side of a bloody East Coast crime war, Danny Ryan is now on the run. The Mafia, the cops, the FBI all want him dead or in prison. With his little boy, his elderly father and the tattered remnants of his loyal crew of soldiers, he makes the classic American migration to California to start a new life. A quiet, peaceful existence. But the Feds track him down and want Danny to do them a favor that could make him a fortune or kill him. And when Hollywood starts shooting a film of his former life, Danny demands a piece of the action and begins to rebuild his criminal empire. Then he falls in love. With a beautiful movie star who has a dark past of her own. As their worlds collide in an explosion that could destroy them both, Danny Ryan has to fight for his life in a city where dreams are born. Or where they go to die. From the shores of Rhode Island to the deserts of California where bodies disappear, from the power corridors of Washington where the real criminals operate to the fabled movie studios of Hollywood where the real money is made, City of Dreams is a sweeping saga of family, love, revenge, survival and the fierce reality behind the dream. Already described as ‘The Godfather for our generation’, this is storytelling at its inspiring, epic best, and it feels like a movie in the making.’ Daily Mail ‘Maintains the fierce trajectory of its predecessor… With this new sequence, Winslow’s epic The Power of the Dog is acquiring an equally accomplished successor.’ Financial Times ‘it’s still the action scenes that stand out, and one of them, a showdown in the desert, is as powerful as anything in Winslow’s majestic Cartel trilogy’ Sunday Times ‘City of Dreams picks up exactly where City on Fire left off, and the result is even sharper, funnier, and more brilliant than its predecessor … but Winslow makes this Aeneid-inspired tale soar—sometimes from epic to venal, or from poignant to comical—and it makes the wait for the third book unbearable.’ Amazon Best Books of April 2023 ‘CITY OF DREAMS is a crime classic. Winslow's best book, by far. You won't put it down’ Stephen King ‘Winslow should not be allowed to write so brilliantly. It’s unfair on all other authors!’ Peter James, the Sunday Times No. 1 Bestselling author Don Winslow is the author of nineteen acclaimed, award-winning, international bestsellers – including the No. 1 international bestseller The Cartel, winner of the Ian Fleming Steel Dagger Award, The Power of the Dog, Savages, and The Winter of Frankie Machine – several of which have been made into movies or are in development. A former investigator, anti-terrorist trainer, and trial consultant, Winslow lives in Southern California.
