Novelist Don Winslow will be in Westerly on April 4 for a event to mark the publication of "City in Ruins," the conclusion of his Rhode Island-inspired organized crime trilogy.

"City in Ruins," which will be released April 2, completes the Danny Ryan series that began in 2022 with "City on Fire" and continued in 2023 with "City of Dreams." The three are Winslow's only books set in the state where he grew up.

"City in Ruins" finds Ryan, the former dock worker, Irish mob soldier and fugitive from the law, living large as a Las Vegas casino mogul and billionaire silent partner in a group that owns two lavish hotels. But when he tries to buy a piece of prime real estate to build his dream resort, he sets off a chain of events that draws the attention of some old enemies bent on revenge.

"City in Ruins," Part 3 of the Danny Ryan series, is out on April 2.

Winslow was born in New York City but grew up in Rhode Island, mostly in the Perryville section of South Kingstown. He now divides his time between California and his restored family home in Perryville.

He is the author of 25 bestsellers, including the "Cartel" trilogy set in the brutal drug wars on the Mexican border. But Winslow is leaving writing behind to pursue another passion: full-time political activism to oppose the reelection of former President Donald Trump and other MAGA politicians.
