An immersive, exuberant, boundary-vaulting novel
New York City, 1976. Meet Regan and William
Hamilton-Sweeney, estranged heirs to one of the city’s great
fortunes; Keith and Mercer, the men who, for better or
worse, love them; Charlie and Samantha, two suburban
teenagers seduced by downtown’s punk scene; an obsessive
magazine reporter and his idealistic neighbor—and the
detective trying to figure out what any of them have to do
with a shooting in Central Park on New Year’s Eve.
The mystery, as it reverberates through families,
friendships, and the corridors of power, will open up even
the loneliest-seeming corners of the crowded city. And when
the blackout of July 13, 1977, plunges this world into
darkness, each of these lives will be changed forever.
City on Fire is an unforgettable novel
about love and betrayal and forgiveness, about art and truth
and rock ’n’ roll: about what people need from each other in
order to live . . . and about what makes the living worth
doing in the first place.
