From Manhattan with Revenge was a great read whether or not you've read any other Chrsitopher Smith books I have no doubt you will get to know the characters from the previous books as easily as if you did. His heroine Carmen is an assasin sometimes working for a "syndicate" of powerful men and women who hire her to take out people who threaten the way they do business. Her former co-worker Vince Spocotti is on his way to back up Carmen on her revenge against the syndicate for their killing her boyfriend Alex just when they were both going to get out of the business and build a normal life together.The syndicate feels that Alex had told Carmen information he had gathered against them and therefore they need to have her taken out as well. Carmen's foes know some of her weaknesses and kidnap an orphan, Chloe, that she had befriended years before, so they know they will be able to take out Carmen as she tries to get the child released. With the help of Carmen's new and old friends and alliances she learns where Chloe is being held and is filled with revenge for Alex and Chloe's lives being threatened because of the line of work she was in. There are many twists, turns and moments of breath-holding while reading this book, which is exactly why I love Christopher Smith books! A thriller? Yes! A great stand-alone novel? Yes! My recommendation is to read slowly because you won't want this book to end! You will be hooked!
There are more works coming from Christopher Smith and I am one of his many fans who are always happy for the next work to come out.

If you never have read a Christopher Smith book, you don't know what you're missing. This author knows how to spin a web of mystery and suspense. In From Manhattan with Revenge, he brings us back the wonderful Carmen! If you thought you knew her from his other books, just wait. Smith takes you into the complex psyche of an assassin, where trust is never an option, Carmen is put into a position that seems virtually impossible to get out of. Trust is her only way out! But, can this girl take that leap and come out the other side alive? Up until the end, you know that this roller coaster thriller is going to turn your heart inside-out. Smith has a way of making you pull for a character that shouldn't be the hero of a traditional thriller; but Smith is no traditional author - that's what makes his books so freaking addictive. Forget what you think you know about who to trust and what to do in a perilous situation. Carmen never pulls any punches; she has a goal. She will do it or die trying. Let's just hope she lives another day for a future Smith tale! A definite read for Thriller & Suspense lovers.

Christopher Smith is by far the most captivating author! His books grab me on the first page and don't let go! Love the characters and storylines. I will not give the plot away but this book is a must-read. Actually, read everyone of Christopher Smith's books and you won't be disappointed.

As with all of Christopher Smith's books, I had a hard time putting this down. The book moves along at a great pace and is full of suspense. I love the characters he creates - even those without many redeeming qualities. His books keep you engaged and wanting more.

I can't wait to see what comes next!

Christopher Smith scores again with a book that, once I started reading, I was unable to stop! The main character, Carmen, is back for revenge. And with powerful reasons! Nothing will get in her way...or will it? Non-stop twists and turns kept me reading as fast as I could with no intention of stopping until I reached the final, but uncertain conclusion. Few authors hold me like that; gripping storytelling that pulls me forward without letting go.

Even if you haven't read another book by Smith, you will have no trouble picking up this story by itself. His books are linked by characters, but are not necessarily "sequels." The more books I read by him...the more I want.

Make sure your Kindle has full charge, and you have the whole day off!!!

The assassins are back. They're the stars of this show and they are motivated. The stakes are as high as ever and the plot is mostly straightforward (compared to previous the previous Manhattan books), which makes the suspense all the worse, like watching a black widow make her way through her web to a snared insect. This book brought the thrill of the hunt to life!

The ending wasn't a surprise, but it wasn't a sure thing, either, given the surprises along the way. For me, the ending seemed a little abrupt, although that may have been just a sudden, if partial, sense of relief. After all, the story doesn't really end here! I am happily awaiting the next book from Christopher Smith.

I LOVE Christopher Smith's books! When I read Fifth Avenue, I raved about the book to all of my friends. I connected with the characters and actually gasped a time or two when reading it. I have read every book in the series and I was so disappointed with this one. There were several grammatical errors, which honestly didn't bother me too much. It was the fact that I was left with more questions in the end than I started with that bothered me. POSSIBLE SPOILERS...We never find out Jake/Fred's back story. He just seemed to be a loose end thrown in for no reason. The book just ends after a major scene and I kept tapping the pages looking for more. Chloe finds out that her surrogate mother/sister is an assassin and there's nothing but an "I'll tell you later?" An epilogue wrapping things up would have made more sense. It was left in such a way that I guess there's an opening for another book, but it wasn't done in a way that will make me want to read it.
