Inhaltsangabe

"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.

Kritikerstimmen

“In Alger's cerebral, expertly paced Swiss thriller, an American expat wife sorts through the conflicting stories surrounding her husband's death.” (The New York Times Book Review)

“An engrossing financial thriller...Alger presents the world of wealth management in a way that a novice can understand the intricacies but also appeals to the sophisticated reader. This complex tale of how greed can upend innocent lives will resonate with many.” (Publishers Weekly)

The Banker's Wife is a page-turning, plot-twisting international thriller of the first order. Cristina Alger’s writing is as sophisticated and self-assured as the characters she’s created. A remarkable and intriguing journey into the rarefied world of power and money. A perfect blend of mystery, suspense, and betrayal.” (Nelson DeMille)

Spannendes Hörbuch - gute Sprecherin!

Sehr spannende Geschichte - fängt gleich spannend an. Ich hab mich immer gefreut, weiterhören zu können. Ob die Geschichte so völlig realistisch ist, sei mal dahingestellt. Das tut der Spannung keinen Abbruch :-) Mir hat jedenfalls das Folgen der Geschichte gefallen und ich werde noch ein Buch der Autorin hören. Ich freue mich, dass es über audible möglich ist, diese Bücher zu bekommen, da sie bis jetzt noch nicht auf Deutsch zu kaufen sind.
