Ce roman de Don Winslow, le deuxième d'une trilogie, est plus faible que le premier. La première moitié, dédiée à la nouvelle vie de Danny Ryan et ses hommes de mains, fuyant la ville de Providence, n'a pas beaucoup d'intérêt, à part de préparer la seconde moitié, centrée sur l'implication de ces personnes dans le monde du cinéma à Hollywood. Le roman devient alors plus intéressant, même si le choix de Danny Ryan de s'afficher publiquement dans sa relation avec une actrice très renommée semble peu crédible de part la personnalité et l'intelligence du personnage mis en place par l'auteur. Ce choix causera la perte de cette actrice et une nouvelle fuite du personnage principal.
Il est dommage que l'auteur n'ait pas plus développé la deuxième partie du roman pour mettre en place quelque chose qui aurait été plus en ligne avec la personnalité de Danny Ryan. Dommage car l'auteur a mainte fois prouvé qu'il pouvait faire beaucoup mieux.

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.

Could not finish. Big disappointment for me after reading Power of the dog trilogy. Could not understand Danny Ryan's character. He seems confused in whole series.
