Ari Fliakos narrates this gangster story based on Homer's ILIAD with a cool reserve. A functioning truce between two criminal families in 1980s Providence, Rhode Island, breaks down when a beautiful woman sets young mobsters against each other. Fliakos shines as he depicts the heartbreaking tension between the men who love Pam, a stand-in for Helen of Troy. Circumstances force Irish gangster Danny Ryan into a leadership role, portrayed by Fliakos with empathy and sincerity. As the bodies stack up, and Fliakos lets an edge of menace into his tone, an evocative climax unfolds. CITY ON FIRE delivers for thirsty crime-fiction aficionados. R.O.
