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 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. 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.

Everything- this is horribly narrated- delivered with a creepy yet boring monotone with a ssssnake like leaky tire hiss in almost every word. The writing couldn't be more adolescent with choice of words and dialogue. This just screams very tacky mini-series on some bad cable channel.
I never would have published this attempt at literature.
See all of the above. I recommend using credits elsewhere if you're a subscriber. If you're not- a martini in a 5th Avenue hotel is cheaper- and goes down more smoothly.
Such a tangled web of family intrigue....
I would love to listen to it again but I am sorry George the narrator sounded like he was whispering throughout - maybe it's my old ipod.
The intrigue, the family plots, the twists and the agony of family money and power can be felt as Christopher unfolds his story to us.
Only to the narration but I will read Christopher Smith again.
