The Banker's Wife has been out as an e-book since July 2018, and this review coincides with the paperback release (out 10 January 2019).
Annabel is the Banker's Wife, and now that her husband is dead, she needs to rebuild her life. She is super suspicious about how he came to be in the wrong country, on the wrong plane, with the wrong wrong. And everyone she talks to her tells her she can trust no one. Marina was looking to retire from journalism when her boss gets murdered and she is determined to follow-up on what he has started.
Ms Alger navigates you through the murky world of private and offshore banking so you know enough without being crushed by boring facts and legal jargon.
Annabel and Marina's respective stories merge beautifully. The dramatic pace is brilliant, and every paragraph seems to invoke more tension and drama.
It's a dead heat for who can be in the most danger at any one time; Annabel or Marina.
I did predict the final twist and it brought a smile to my face as the book came to close. But for the rest it was a riveting romp.
VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
I have seen that it is soon to be made into a television series, which is perfect, and I hope it brings a bigger audience to this deserving thriller.
Thank you so much the publisher and NetGalley for providing me with a complimentary electronic copy in return for an honest review.
