A USA Today Bestseller "Immersive, satisfying, tense--and timely: This is probably happening for real right now."--Lee Child "First-rate...Slick, heart-hammering entertainment."--The New York Times Book Review 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 Werner, 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.

"They will prove mistaken," said Hamlyn, gravely. "I should not consider it justifiable to make the purchase." "Then I think you'll live to repent it when 'tis too late, and you find Lord Vernon growing up like a grain of mustard-seed under your nose, with all the Barlows of Alderham roosting in his branches!--Barlow is looking out for a farm to enable that cub of a son of his to prove what deuced bad farmers, what he calls 'a country family, ' can produce!"-- "However sorely tempted, I feel it my duty to forbear," still persisted the banker. "What! when the thing takes the form of a profitable investment? Why you know very well how difficult it is, now-a-days, to get even four per cent, for money; and if Robson's estimate be correct, Durdan's farm, even at the price named, will bring five! In a month or so, I shall be having one hundred and fifteen thousand pounds thrown upon my hands, (if Moonjee and Company are true to their engagements, ) and then you'll be telling me that, instead of the six per cent, my friends at Chinderapore have hitherto secured me, I might whistle for five!--However, don't let me detain you, with my Ovington news! Go, and settle Lydia's business for her!--Go and lay down the faggots on your line of road, and leave Mrs. Hamlyn and me to chat about what concerns us more than dot-and-cany A glance which followed the direction of Colonel Hamilton's eyes at that moment exhibited to Richard Hamlyn the face of his wife, as pale as ashes, --though inclined over the plate in which she was unconsciously smashing an egg-shell with a gold egg-spoon into the aspect of a choice bit...

Excerpt from The Banker's Wife, or Court and City, Vol. 3 of 3: A Novel Moreover, all was so bright, so prosperous, so sunshiny around her, that it seemed absurd to look out for breakers when launched on that glassy sea, and under a sky so propi tious. Flattering as was her position in London life, the banker's wife had never felt the value of her good acceptation in society till called upon to present her daughter. The kindness with which Lydia was welcomed into the world, filled her mother with gratitude towards the frivolous circles she had hitherto regarded with indifference; and she had the satisfaction to perceive that the girl so flatteringly noticed in compliment to her parents soon became a general favourite from her own merits. Seldom had a debutante equally lovely appeared in the beau-monde. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
