Ari Fliakos uses his skill with accents, pacing, and ratcheting up narrative tension to deliver this second novel in a trilogy. In the first novel, CITY ON FIRE, Irish mobster Danny Ryan led a mob war against a rival Italian gang. In this follow-up, the war continues, and Fliakos allows Ryan's desperation and exhaustion to creep into his narration. Eventually, the story lands in Hollywood, where Ryan joins a production as a silent advisor and partner. Winslow's capo, Danny Ryan, takes his place alongside the great Mob bosses like Michael Corleone of THE GODFATHER. Fliakos portrays Ryan with intelligence, humanity, and flashes of vocal fireworks. The story is one for the ages, and this audio version is one of the best ways to experience its violent and heartbreaking world. R.O.
