Stephen King: "Put me down as an enthusiastic Christopher Smith fan. Smith is a cultural genius.

Look beneath all the power and all the wealth that represents New York City's Fifth Avenue, and you'll find greed, blood, revenge. 

In the international best-selling thriller "Fifth Avenue," each intermingles within a revered society that's shaken to its core when one man finally decides to destroy another man for murdering his wife thirty-one years ago.

Louis Ryan is that man. George Redman, his wife, two daughters and their close friends are his targets.

The moment Ryan hires an international assassin to literally rip the Redman family apart, a series of events that can't be stopped catapults them all through a fast-paced, hard-edged thriller in which nobody is safe. 

Secrets are revealed. Sex lives are exposed. The Mafia get involved.

And George's two daughters, Celina and Leana Redman, are suddenly caught in the throes of their father's past as Louis Ryan's blind desire to kill them all takes surprising turns in his all-out effort to see them dead.

  • Excellent and thrilling!

    By Celina1977
    Quite surprised that this is a "first" novel by the author Christopher Smith. Fifth Avenue is set in Manhattan, New York and tells a tale of corruption, greed and revenge. The characters in the novel are brilliantly introduced and you often wonder if this book is actually a work of fiction. The plot has lots of twists and turns, while the reader discovers the long raging feud between the two main character families. Fifth Avenue is definitely a page turner that keeps you in suspense throughout the whole novel. I cannot wait to read future novels by this author and would recommend this novel to readers who like books that hold mystery, intrigue, suspense, revenge and hatred.. It grabbed my attention from the first page and the tension only built as the book went on. Mr Smith, you're an excellent writer of thrillers. You can be sure that I'll be reading more of your books. Thank you for a thrilling read!
  • What is the true pub date?

    By MJ845
    This book is the first of five in a series, the other four have earlier pub dates, so how does this have a pub date of 12/28/17 ? I suspect that it is the pub date of when it was converted to an ebook and not the real pub date. Something the iBook site does far to often.
