Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: 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.

    In this high-intrigue tale of the hidden world of international finance, Annabel finds herself unable to trust anyone after her husband, Matthew, dies in a mysterious plane crash. She's stuck in Geneva, having been there for two years with no job and no friends as Matthew made millions as a private banker—what was supposed to be a temporary job until they could move back to New York and be a "regular" couple again. Meanwhile, journalist Marina is shocked when her mentor is murdered just as he was about to break a story about money-laundering happening at the same Swiss bank where Matthew worked. She's determined to find justice and to uncover the truth behind what's going on at the bank. Alternating chapters give readers each woman's point of view as their stories run concurrently and eventually come together in a thrilling fashion. Alger perfectly nails her twisty plot, wrapping everything up in a completely satisfying ending. Readers will be eagerly turning the pages of this fast-paced financial thriller.
