I am honored today to reveal the cover of my friend Cristina Alger’s next novel, The Banker’s Wife. This can’t-put-down thriller novel comes out on July 3rd of 2018 from Putnam. I had the honor of reading it already and I can say that it has all of my favorite ingredients; immediate plot, believable characters, fast-paced action, political and financial intrigue and a touch of Cristina Alger‘s dry humor. I was the biggest fan of Cristina’s first book, The Darlings. If you haven’t read The Darlings, you should before The Banker’s Wife comes out.
Now, let’s talk about who blurbed and loved this book- none other than Nelson DeMille, Lee Child, Chris Pavone, Mary Kubica, Alex Berenson, Alafair Burke, Janelle Brown, Liz Fenton and Lisa Steinke, and Kate White. Basically this book is so good that it earned the Blurb Dream Team.
“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 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.
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.”
