City on Fire

by Garth Risk Hallberg

eBooks of the Month Modern and Classic Literary Fiction Thriller and Suspense

City on Fire Synopsis

New York. 1977. Be There When It Explodes. It's New Year's Eve, 1976, and New York is a city on the edge. As midnight approaches, a blizzard sets in - and amidst the fireworks, an unmistakable sound rings out across Central Park. Gunshots. Two of them. The search for the shooter will bring together a rich cast of New Yorkers. From the reluctant heirs to one of the city's greatest fortunes, to a couple of Long Island kids drawn to the punk scene downtown. From the newly arrived and enchanted, to those so sick of the city they want to burn it to the ground.
