Christopher Smith's novella "From Manhattan with Love" resembles my mother's meat loaf recipe. She took whatever happened to be in the refrigerator, kneaded it together in one big lump, baked it, and hoped for the best. With Mom's meat loaf, the results weren't perfect, but they were often surprisingly tasty. Similarly, Smith's novella blends a number of disparate elements into one story that. for the most part, is quite urbane and witty.

"Manhattan" is actually the third book in Smith's "Fifth Avenue" series, which looks at the lives and intrigues of very rich New Yorkers. The novella takes characters from the first two books in the series and comes up with a way to have them meet in a most dramatic fashion. Even though some of the characters were introduced in Smith's earlier books, readers who haven't read those other works won't have any difficulty following the story line of "Manhattan."

The first half of the novella follows two top notch professional assassins, Carmen and Alex, on an assignment together. In a story line that's pretty much borrowed from the movie, "Mr. and Mrs. Smith," Carmen and Alex each receive instructions from their handler to kill the other after the current assignment is completed. Unbeknownst to their handler, who are trying to tie up all the loose ends from their earlier assignment, the two have gotten romantically involved and wind up spilling the beans to each other. Carmen and Alex eventually decide to turn the tables on the handler and kill him in a very messy, public manner at a big charity gala.

At this point, about halfway through "Manhattan," Smith shifts his focus from the assassins to Leana Redman, one of the guests at the party, and goes back in time a couple of hours to follow Leana's activities leading up to the party.

This is a grab-your-eyes-and-soul kind of story. I was gripped from the very beginning.

I know the author tried to make this a stand alone novella, but I had a hard time following the second set of characters and I was always left feeling like I should have known a lot more about them than what I actually did/do.

The ending has a twist that I did not see coming. Maybe it was due to the fact that this is my first exposure to the larger series, but I think (and hope) that others will be left with the same impressions I had.

I loved 5th ave. Bought this thinking it was the next in the series. instead its a small chapter in what should have been the next book. Very disappointed and would recommend you not waste your money. The 3rd book in the series is excellent. Skip this one.

Because I was unaware that this was a short story, lead up to Park Avenue, I was disappointed when I was suddenly at the end. I thought WTH, and was frustrated and annoyed. That said, the story, was like the others, action packed and a page turner. I want the next installment to come out, quickly!

Thought this was the last book in the Manhattan series - very short read, found it dissapointing .... not sure why the Author would write the last saga in a novella and a novel - confusing! If you read the first two books in this series skip this book and read the full length version !

This one is very short. I must not have noticed the page count when I got it. It's barely novella length. The story didn't immerse me like his other's did, and I'm sure it's just because of how short it was. A little pricey for the length of it.

This novella has me just just about busting to find out where the series is headed in the next book! After reading Fifth Avenue and Running with the Bulls, I'm addicted to this action on steroids series. From Manhattan with Love is a bit of teaser for the next novel, but it has so much packed into a short story...I've come this far and will keep right on going as long as Christopher Smith keeps writing them.

This is indeed a novella: as others have said, an appetizer for the rest of the series. It is expertly written and I found the main characters of Carmen and Alex likeable and really vulnerable in their feelings for each other. The action scenes are well-executed and reminded me a lot of the film, The Towering Inferno. Overall, an entertaining read that offers some food for thought.
