A Rush to Violence
by Christoper Smith
Rating: 4.7 Stars
Sixteen years ago, Camille Miller left behind her life as an assassin in order to raise her daughter Emma. But now, when her billionaire father is found brutally murdered, she must tap into old instincts to learn who killed her father and why.
The suspects? Her six siblings, each so desperate for their father’s money that they’d kill for it.
What Camille doesn’t see coming is Emma’s plan to solve the mystery first. Or P.I. Marty Spellman’s assignment, which is to find Camille or risk the deaths of those dearest to him. Over the course of one day, all three players, plus Spellman’s teenaged daughter Beth, find themselves in a race to the finish. Nobody’s goals are what they appear to be. Twists abound. And not one single person, for one single moment, is safe.
Here’s what the reviewers have to say:
“This crime thriller is a fast-paced and engaging read. … The narrative kept me on the edge of my seat and I really couldn’t predict what was going to happen next. … The pace never flagged.” Kirkus Editorial
“Smith is this generation’s Master storyteller. If you’re a fan of suspense thrillers and unbelievable twists and turns, you will quickly become a fan of Christopher Smith! He entices you to fall in love with his characters only to be caught totally off guard when their fate goes in a direction you never saw coming. A definite must read for mystery, suspense, and thriller lovers!” Jim Ashley
“Fifth Avenue. A big, big novel. A blockbuster? Yes. A bestseller. It should be. The author, at the beginning of the novel, thanks the people who introduced him to the ‘real’ Fifth Avenue. I suspect the real one could not be as interesting or engrossing as this novel. …This is a highly recommended novel. It deserves the five stars.” P.M. RICHTER
I’ve read everything Chris Smith has written. His “Bullied” series should be required reading for every middle schooler in America. Rush to Violence is an absolute knockout. I was mesmerized. Complex plot, truly evil characters, and nonstop action. His Marty Spellman character will be around for a long while.
Another smash by Christopher Smith! He is definitely becoming the next “Can’t Wait For the Next One!” storyteller. Starting from the first page, he takes you on a thrill ride you can’t wait to get on but are anxious about what’s around the next page. You never know what you’re going to get hit with next. You will definitely be hit with a rush by the end and will not be disappointed. With Smith, you’ll come to expect his great weaving of storytelling threads with each book.
