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.
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 at 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 the 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 collides? Chaos. Murder. Love. Revenge.
In this taut, 35,000-word novella, both women come together 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.
FROM MANHATTAN WITH REVENGE
Carmen Gragera is a gifted international assassin. So was her lover, Alex Williams, before he was savagely murdered by a powerful syndicate who considered each end-of-cycle.
Carmen escaped their wrath, but with Alex dead, her own wrath only grew.
Now, through unusual means, she's seeking her revenge against the syndicate for Alex's death.
Assisting her is an eccentric, Park Avenue-based seasonings heiress and a 103-year-old former psychiatrist whose contacts run deep. Also joining her is fellow assassin Vincent Spocatti, with whom Carmen has worked before, and for whom she has the utmost respect.
But is the respect mutual?
In "From Manhattan with Revenge," where there are so many twists, they eventually form a noose that whips around Carmen's neck, revenge comes at a cost higher than she ever anticipated.
A RUSH TO VIOLENCE
Sixteen years ago, Camille Miller left behind her life as an assassin in order to raise her daughter, Emma. But now, when her billionaire father is found brutally murdered, she must tap into old instincts to learn who killed her father and why.
The suspects? Her six siblings, each so desperate for their father's money that they'd kill for it.
What Camille doesn't see coming is Emma's plan to solve the mystery first. Or P.I. Marty Spellman's assignment, which is to find Camille or risk the deaths of those dearest to him.
Over the course of one day, all three players, plus Spellman's teenaged daughter Beth, find themselves in a race to the finish. Nobody's goals are what they appear to be.
Twists abound. And not one single person, for one single moment, is safe.
Sometimes, even after death, revenge carries on. Targets remain targets. People will die.
From the grave, one man’s will delivers the directive. Kill George Redman. Kill Leana Redman. Kill every Redman. Finish the job, crush them all, do it swiftly, rob them of their hopes, steal away their dreams.
In Park Avenue, the sixth book in the hugely popular Fifth Avenue series (Fifth Avenue, Running of the Bulls, From Manhattan with Love, From Manhattan with Revenge, A Rush to Violence), the heat boils over as characters from each book collide in a single collective nightmare.
For the Redmans, the problem is that this one man, long since deceased, is not alone in his quest to see them dead. Others are conspiring against the Redmans, which leads to a punishing series of events as they fight for their lives.
Park Avenue, which skewers New York society to its core, is the most complicated and satisfying book yet by #1 international best-selling novelist, Christopher Smith.
