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.
