Publisher's Summary

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.

    Story
    "Such a tangled web of family intrigue...."
    Would you listen to Fifth Avenue again? Why?

    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.


    What did you like best about this story?

    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.


    Would you be willing to try another one of George Kuch’s performances?

    NOPE!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Only to the narration but I will read Christopher Smith again.

    "The first and the best!"

    Have read Fifth Avenue twice, each time liking it more. Now, listening to it has created an even more solid story line. George Kuch is an outstanding narrator. I have also purchased two other Christopher Smith books on audible and look forward to listening to them as well.

    Story
    "Really?"
    What would have made Fifth Avenue better?

    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.


    What was most disappointing about Christopher Smith’s story?

    Everything.


    Would you be willing to try another one of George Kuch’s performances?

    No.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Fifth Avenue?

    I never would have published this attempt at literature.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Good story but horrible reading"
    If you could sum up Fifth Avenue in three words, what would they be?

    Thrilling entertainment ( the book version)


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    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.

    "I loved this book"

    I'd never heard of Christopher Smith until I saw a review of this book by Stephen King (one of my fave authors), last year, recommending it. I originally bought the book but never have time to sit and read so when I heard (on Christophers Facebook page) that his books were going on Audible, I immediately bought it - I LOVED this book! I'd recommend it to anyone - the story is engrossing, the characters and settings are so well written that you can see every detail and get really drawn into the story and and the narrator is really good, he obviously loves the book too - he reads it so well! The ending is brilliant - Ive just bought the next one in this series. I'd put Christopher Smith up there with Stephen King, John Grisham and Dean Koontz. Give this book a try, and also add Chris on Facebook for info of his other books, he offers prizes of signed books to his facebook fans. I'm so glad his books are available on Audible now. 5 stars!!!

    "Poor sound quality"

    I found this hard going, the voice & the hissing in the background put me off & I had to return this book
