"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.Read more ›
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.
