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.

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.
Good story but horrible reading
Thrilling entertainment ( the book version)
I was reading the book and bought the audio version too for not have to stop, while having the hands occupied, but : what a horrible whispering... destroying all the joy of listening. Unfortunately I have not listen to the track before buying it!
I recommend to do that first!
Now I'm reading the second book "Running of the bulls", but the audio version is also narrated by George Kuch! Bad luck!
In my opinion Scott Brick would have been the better - if not the best- option for a good thriller like this.
