"PUT ME DOWN AS AN ENTHUSIASTIC CHRISTOPHER SMITH FAN. SMITH IS A CULTURAL GENIUS."
In the second book in the international best-selling “Fifth Avenue Series,” a former Wall Street titan who robbed the world of billions is now out of prison. Good for him, but not for those who put him there. Now, they are dying grisly deaths by the hands of two hired assassins.
Investigating is private investigator Marty Spellman, who soon learns that all isn't what it seems as the twists pile up along with the sheer number of the dead.
Spellman's life is put on the line. His family is threatened. No one is who they appear to be. Who can he trust as the bulls of Wall Street start to run as the two assassins--Vincent Spocatti and Carmen Gragera--fully ignite their killing spree?
"Running of the Bulls" is approximately 93,000 words or about 310 pages.

RAVES FOR CHRISTOPHER SMITH:
***JIM ASHLEY ON FIFTH AVENUE AND RUNNING OF THE BULLS***
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. He takes the styles of James Patterson and Steven King to a totally kicking level. I can honestly say that I spent way too many late night hours reading chapters because I could not put it down and couldn't wait to see what he would do next. Starting with Fifth Avenue, he builds such entertaining and deep characters that you know this cannot be the end but just the start to future stories interweaving these strong individuals. With Running of the Bulls, you're so caught in the action - that you're honestly rooting for the characters that would historically be the bad guys in other tales. Christopher seems to set the bar higher and higher for himself, and I can't wait for his upcoming releases in 2012. A definite must read for mystery, suspense, and thriller lovers!
***PLANET KINDLE ON CHRISTOPHER SMITH***
"Fifth Avenue, the first novel by penned Christopher Smith, is a fantastic first effort and was the reason I was simply unable to put my Kindle down over this Christmas period. And I would go as far to say that it ranks as one of the best first novels I’ve ever read."--PLANET KINDLE
***P.M. RICHTER ON CHRISTOPHER SMITH***
"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
***JENNIFER LONG ON RUNNING OF THE BULLS***
"Christopher Smith did it again. This book is packed with suspense, and delivers both characters that you will love and loathe. A time or two near the end, I found myself actually on the side of the villains and I really hope those two show up in Park Avenue. The story moves quickly...as most of the action all happens in one day. Makes it terribly difficult to put down. Smith paints a great picture of every character- I found myself chuckling aloud a time or two. Well written, well planned- I am definitely going to be reading more from this author. Can't wait for Park Avenue!" --JENNIFER LONG
