Présentation de l'éditeur

*STEPHEN KING on Christopher Smith: "Put me down as an enthusiastic Christopher Smith fan. Smith is a cultural genius."


For the first time, all three books in the international Top 100 best-selling FIFTH AVENUE series are now available in one boxed set! Look for the sixth book in the series, PARK AVENUE, available now.

Over 800 pages!


DESCRIPTIONS:


FIFTH AVENUE:

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 is unprepared for what's in store for it when one man finally strikes in an effort 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. Both men are self-made billionaires who came from nothing to stake their claim to Fifth Avenue. But when Louis 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, come to the forefront. More than anyone, it's they who are 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.


RUNNING OF THE BULLS:

In the second book in the international best-selling “Fifth Avenue Series,” a former Wall Street titan who robbed the world of billions is now out of prison. Good for him, but not for those who put him there. Now, they are dying grisly deaths by the hands of two hired assassins.

Investigating is private investigator Marty Spellman, who soon learns that all isn't what it seems as the twists pile up along with sheer number of the dead.

Spellman's life is put on the line. His family is threatened. No one is who they appear to be. Who can he trust as the bulls of Wall Street start to run as the two assassins--Vincent Spocatti and Carmen Gragera--fully ignite their killing spree?


FROM MANHATTAN WITH LOVE:

An outcast billionaire’s daughter is caught at the wrong place at the wrong time.

An international assassin questions her sanity when she falls in love with the very assassin she’s charged to assassinate.

What happens when each collide? Chaos. Murder. Love. Revenge.

And redemption.

In this taut, 35,000-word novella, which is a prequel to the upcoming third novel in the Fifth Avenue series, “Park Avenue,” both women come together for the first time in an explosive story that threatens each of their lives, particularly when one woman breaks her own rules and dares to fall in love.

In “From Manhattan with Love,” she soon learns what she always feared. When it comes to real danger, there’s nothing more dangerous than love itself.


RAVES FOR CHRISTOPHER SMITH:


***PLANET KINDLE ON CHRISTOPHER SMITH***

"Fifth Avenue, the first novel by penned Christopher Smith, is a fantastic first effort and was the reason I was simply unable to put my Kindle down over this Christmas period. And I would go as far to say that it ranks as one of the best first novels I’ve ever read."--PLANET KINDLE



***P.M. RICHTER ON CHRISTOPHER SMITH***

"Fifth Avenue. A big, big novel. A blockbuster? Yes. A bestseller. It should be. The author, at the beginning of the novel, thanks the people who introduced him to the 'real' Fifth Avenue. I suspect the real one could not be as interesting or engrossing as this novel. ...This is a highly recommended novel. It deserves the five stars." --P.M. RICHTER



***CHRIS TRUSCOTT ON CHRISTOPHER SMITH***

"Christopher Smith delivers an amazing story that's worth the advance billing."

Personnages stéréotypés, prose très pauvre, histoire peu crédible et confuse. Bref on s'ennuie et on n'y croît pas. C'est écrit à la moulinette. Toutes les dix pages les personnages passent leur temps devant la fenêtre d'un gratteciel à Manhattan, en admiration du paysage.... ...

2.0 étoiles sur 5 The art of mediocrity 24 avril 2012
Par Hella Georgina Aguirre Dorrer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
The good price of the set and the good reviews got me to buy these books. I wouldn't go as far as to consider the money wasted, but I sincerely doubt I will ever read these texts again.
Both novels and the novella share common traits in structure and style: The author tries to pack the stories with action and morbid qualities, but he does it to such an extent and in such a way that it soon becomes saturated, unbelievable and -what IMHO is worse- predictable and boring. The plot twists he goes for seem many times desperate attempts to be surprising and original but fail completely as after the first couple you already know what to expect.
The gallery of characters was -MHO again- completely unappealing. I'm not well acquainted with Fifhth Avenue's jet set nor with international hitmen, and maybe Stephen King is right and the author truly is a "cultural genius", but I find it hard to believe that everybody is completely dumb, amoral, boring, spoiled etc... It's really scary to think even the "self-made men" who have supposedly worked their way to being powerful are really all so stupid.
There was not a single character I cared for, not even a little. Whether they came and went in the plot made absolutely no difference to me. I just turned the pages because I feel bad for not finishing a book and because - to be honest- I was curious to see whether I could guess the next "unexpected twist".

Some things really upset me: For one, the author focuses on some characters in ways that, if not sarcastic, are trully sad: One of the main female character complains she has never been given chance to succeed and uses it as an excuse to explain her mistakes. When she is finally given the chance (not even because she deserves it), the author keeps focusing on how she "intends" to show the world she can make it... but actually, if you count at the the end of the story the time she did invest in working for that respect, it turns out she dedicates little time at all. Pathetic, especially because the author seems to feel a special pride in the way she "prospers".
Another main character who should be extremely resourceful -being a pro killer- makes stupid mistakes that she does not even remember about and that lead to the -boring- novella.

The books also display other upsetting traits, not because the author puts certain attitudes in the book, but because they appear so often and in all circles that is seems they are his own ideas and not those of specific characters. To name one, all references to non-USA natives are deprecating and the books reek of chauvinism and condescension.
He also pays little attention to verisimilitude, and in some cases these "mistakes" deter from focusing in the action and makes the characters appear even more stupid than what they already did: For instance a secondary character is called "Lady Ionesco of Spain" and people "suspect she has bought the title". If the author had taken the time to research, he might have discovered that
a) The Spanish equivalent of "Lady" belongs to the female "Grandes de España" and must go with either "Excelentísimo" or "Ilustrísimo" before it (that is leaving aside the fact that most Grandes of Spain already posses other more important nobiliary titles).
b) Ionesco is not even a Spanish name, and since the "lord/lady" Spanish equivalents usually go attached to the land you were ruling over, it is hard to understand why someone ready to buy a fake title would go for a Spanish title with a Romanian name instead of a made-up Spanish name. I guess it could happen, but given the lack of credibility of other areas in the books, these kind of things only make the whole look even less coherent.
The amount of typos and the repetitive use of words and phrases becomes monotonous. Everyone, regardless of their role or origin seems not only to move for the same superficial reasons, but to even use the same forms of speech and even inhabit the same sort of buildings. Poor.

All in all, I can't understand the high praise these books got. They may be not terrible, and can well fill a couple of hours if you are not too demanding in consistency and if you don't expect to be too caught up with the plot or characters (that's the only reason I gave it a generous 2 stars); everything rains on you but slips off without penetrating.
There seems to be a fourth book coming soon -or already out-. I won't be going for it, and after swallowing three epsiodes of the saga I find it rather sad that I'm not even curious for the fate of any of the characters involved.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Gripping Thrillers - Smith sets the bar quite high!!! 13 février 2012
Par J. Ashley - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Smith is this generation's Master storyteller. If you're a fan of suspense thrillers and unbelievable twists and turns, you will quickly become a fan of Christopher Smith! He entices you to fall in love with his characters only to be caught totally off guard when their fate goes in a direction you never saw coming. He takes the styles of James Patterson and Steven King to a totally kicking level. I can honestly say that I spent way too many late night hours reading chapters because I could not put it down and couldn't wait to see what he would do next. Starting with Fifth Avenue, he builds such entertaining and deep characters that you know this cannot be the end but just the start to future stories interweaving these strong individuals. With Running of the Bulls, you're so caught in the action - that you're honestly rooting for the characters that would historically be the bad guys in other tales. Based on these first 3, Christopher seems to set the bar higher and higher for himself, and I can't wait for his upcoming releases in 2012. A definite must read for mystery, suspense, and thriller lovers!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 No Bull here! 14 février 2012
Par Goldmantx - Publié sur Amazon.com

This box set is the run up to Chris's next book Park Avenue.
All of these books kept me reading until the wee hours of the night and had some good twists and turns. Mr. Smith has risen in my ranks of Thriller Authors and I am anxiously awaiting more.
What I like most about Smith's books are his character development. He give you the ins and outs and continues this throughout the series.
The series starts with Fifth Avenue and rolls into Running of the Bulls where you uncover more of the "plot". From Manhattan with Love is the bridge to his next book and gives you a hint of what this author in store for Park Avenue.
If these books are any indication of what he is capable of, we need to keep an eye on him and his future works!

All books are a must read for anyone who is a mystery, suspense, and thriller fan

Fifth Avenue, from the very beginning to the very end you have a story line that will reach out and grab you. This is a real must read.

Running of the Bulls was as good as First Avenue, and will have you on the edge of your seat.

From Manhattan with Love, you wil really feel a part of the story-line, with ups and downs of each character!

Park Avenue, is the next one due to be released.. I hope its as good as the last three.

The Fifth Avenue Series Boxed set is a thriller/mystery series, but not my favorite. It was very bloody, with lots of bodies pileing up and not a lot of explaination to go with it. I like a good murder mystery, but this was too much murder.
