Publisher's Summary

"Immersive, satisfying, tense - and timely: This is probably happening for real right now." (Lee Child)
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 a few who are too close to home. The story could also be the answer to Annabel's heartbreaking search - if Marina chooses to publish it.
The Banker's Wife is both a high-stakes thriller and an inside look at the personal lives in the intriguing world of finance, introducing Cristina Alger as a powerful new voice in the genre.

Terrible book

This isn’t the worst book I’ve listened to (that prize goes to Stephanie Myers), but it is pretty close. This novel is a recommended read in the NYT, so I gave it a try. I thought for the first third of the book that I had bought a romance by accident—it was breathy, cliched and utterly predictable. Even as romance gave way to ‘thriller’ the book remained predictable and the writing absolutely canned. Every turn of phrase seems to come from a list of possible phrase turnings. Nothing feels original. I’m all for light summer reading, but this wasn’t even fun.
