The Banker's Wife by Cristina Alger

Two women in dangerous situations through no fault of their own.

Annabelle was married, but her husband seemed to be married to his job.  After a plane crash, she finds out why there had been a plane crash with him in it.

Marina writes stories about men like Annabel's husband, but this current story is a bit too dangerous to continue with even though Marina does.

Actually a lot of folks seemed to be in danger, and the persons behind this situation are aware of every move Marina, Annabel, and others are making.

After the plane crash and when Annabel was out of her Geneva apartment, it was ransacked.  Annabel really became angry and frightened when she came home to the damage.  Marina really became angry when she found out some information about her future father-in-law and when she found her friend had been murdered for uncovering incriminating information.  

What was going on? It all seemed to stem from the Swiss bank and its clients.

So many people were involved in this illegal money hiding. It is a pretty frightening concept that seems like it could be “real” in today’s world.

The behind-the-scenes hacking and finding out information is also a bit on the scary side.

The story line was interesting, but was a little slow at times with all the technical information.  As the story continued, though, the tension mounted as everyone involved in the money scheme was coming to the surface and trying to keep those who knew what was going on quiet.

THE BANKER’S WIFE addressed high profile and powerful men and women where money was the catalyst, and as the saying goes “the root of all evil.”

Perhaps it isn’t a good idea to be a “banker’s wife.”  :)  

If you enjoy secrets, intrigue, corruption, and love, you will enjoy THE BANKER'S WIFE. 4/5

I received an advance copy by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.  All opinions are my own.


  1. I'm not doing well with slow moments in books right now so this might not be for me at this particular time.

    1. It did drag a bit at times so you may want to wait.

      Thanks or commenting, Kathy.

  2. Sounds a bit intense but that's when I need good pacing. Sounds like it could be a good movie though.

    1. It was good but intense, Mary.

      Also frightening that it most likely does happen.

      Thanks for commenting.
