Review: The Banker's Wife by Cristina Alger

July 3, 2018

On an early morning in November, a couple boards a private plane bound for Geneva, flying into a storm. Soon after, it simply drops off the radar, and its wreckage is later uncovered in the Alps. Among the disappeared is Matthew Lerner, a banking insider at Swiss United, a powerful offshore bank. His young widow, Annabel, is left grappling with the secrets he left behind, including an encrypted laptop and a shady client list. As she begins a desperate search for answers, she determines that Matthew's death was no accident, and that she is now in the crosshairs of his powerful enemies. 


Meanwhile, ambitious society journalist Marina Tourneau has finally landed at the top. Now that she's engaged to Grant Ellis, she will stop writing about powerful families and finally be a part of one. Her entry into the upper echelons of New York's social scene is more appealing than any article could ever be, but, after the death of her mentor, she agrees to dig into one more story. While looking into Swiss United, Marina uncovers information that implicates some of the most powerful men in the financial world, including some who are too close to home. The story could also be the answer to Annabel's heartbreaking search—if Marina chooses to publish it.

**** 4 Star Review ****


Get ready for a great paced, twisting and turning thriller! I was hooked from the start, having no idea where the story was going to take me.


This book is filled with strong female characters, all of whom kick butt. I couldn't find a negative thing about them. They are smart, strong-willed, and take no crap from anyone. Their brilliance and perseverance left me in awe.


The plot of this book kept me on my toes from the very beginning. I couldn't put it down. It is full of twists and turns I definitely didn't see coming. As the plot thickened, the action picked up and left my heart pounding.


I was worried about the main subject of this book. I am not familiar with banking and financing, but the author did a fantastic job at keeping the reader informed without being boring. I found myself intrigued and curious.  This was definitely a thriller I wasn't expecting to be so entertaining.
