In each individual novel his characters are so vividly and strongly built that they would be easily recognised if spotted in a very plush five star hotel bar in Manhattan. Even if seeing them meant that you would travel in the opposite direction to avoid their devious character traits!
The stories contain as many twists and turns as a corkscrew, leaving you to constantly guess where the next chapter will lead you. The consequences are often not as expected however, although always reaching a satisfying end.
Each story is interwoven with the style and panache that Smith does so well. Each volume is compelling, leading you almost seamlessly from one book to the next, before reaching the rewarding conclusion.
A notable series of books which will, undoubtedly lead this author as a major luminary in the world of thriller writers.
I give one cautionary note, however. Do not read these books unless you have at least several hours of unplanned time ahead of you, because once the journey in Fifth Avenue has begun, it is difficult to come back to reality until the final page is reached!
Fifth Avenue is the first book in the series and has so many twists and turns that it will keep you on the edge of your seat right up until the end.
In Running with Bulls, the second in the series, we find out more about Vincet & Carmen, the assassins from the first book. This story doesn't have as many twists in as the previous story but it will still give you lots of surprises and it is a thrilling read. The final pages are a real rollercoaster, and I did like the ending.
Please note that the third book, From Manhattan With Love is only a short story. It ties both of the previous books in nicely and acts as a lead up to the next book in the series Park Avenue. I can't wait!
I have really enjoyed reading the Fifth Avenue Series, and I like Christopher Smiths style of writing. I think I might try the "Bullied" series of books now while I wait patiently for Park Avenue!
Running with the bulls carries on the theme (with a previous character from Fifth Avenue) and is an engrossing read, well paced and well written although maybe a little 'far fetched' on a couple of occasions.
From Manhattan With Love is an added shorter story featuring one of the main characters from Fifth Avenue & another from Running with the Bulls and provides a suitable ending to this trilogy although there is a new novel appearing soon which I will certainly be adding to my Kindle library.
Overall, three very good stories and I look forward to reading more by this author.
From bungy jumping to bull-running in Spain, the opportunities for murder are highly original and perfectly implemented. You come to the conclusion that it's not a good idea to piss off vengeful billionaires with dodgy but highly professional contacts.
