The Banker’s Wife
When her husband, Matthew, was offered a private-banking job in Switzerland, Annabel went eagerly along, building a lavish expat life in Geneva. Matthew’s employer, Swiss United, lavishes its employees with perks and astronomical salaries, and life seems almost absurdly cushy. But when Matthew dies in a plane crash with a mysterious woman at his side, Annabel isn’t willing to believe Swiss United’s explanation. When she begins digging deeper into the accident, she uncovers appalling criminal acts–and more danger than she ever could have imagined. Meanwhile, journalist Marina is closing in on the biggest story of her career, alongside her friend and mentor, Duncan. When Duncan, too, dies under mysterious circumstances, Marina’s pursuit of the truth brings her right into Annabel’s world. The information these two women have could bring down many of the world’s most powerful figures–unless those figures get to the women first.
Swiss United and its cohort are arresting villains, and the detailed glimpse inside the world of anonymous Swiss banking adds to the breathless intrigue. The wealth in play–and the lengths to which people will go to protect it–are as shocking as the deaths that lie in their wake.
After editing at City Book Review for a few years, I took up the duties of editorial assistant, which include assigning books for review, posting reviews to our various sites, and nagging reviewers for things. In my non-nagging time, I’m a gamer, artist, writer, and notorious black thumb/bane of plants. My answer to every book-related question: read Octavia Butler.
