    I really enjoyed reading most of this book. The writing is snappy and I really wanted to find out what happened. About 3/4 way through, though, it became too repetitive (tighter editing would have helped). The plot was intriguing enough and the author seems to have done her research on international money laundering. But then it got too go

    Would have been a good read, as the story line was interesting, if the character development and story details had not been so sophomoric.

    Panama Papers Redux

    Cristina Alger’s “The Bankers Wife” is not a work of literature, but it makes for a good summer read. There are three very strong female characters that make the novel work. And it is these three women who uncover a vast money laundering scheme created by the Swiss United bank to hide the cash behind mobsters, fraudsters, terrorists and the Bashir Assad family of Syria.

    The women are Annabel the wife

    The first part of this book is five stars. Interesting plot, great character development and wonderful writing. By the end, only the wonderful writing remained. By the last chapters of this books, the plot becomes sophomoric and the characters uninteresting. Recommended if in paperback but would not pay full pri

    Get ready for a great paced, twisting and turning thriller! I was hooked from the start, having no idea where the story was going to take me.

    This book is filled with strong female characters, all of whom kick butt. I couldn't find a negative thing about them. They are smart, strong willed, and take no crap from anyone. Their brilliance and perseverance left me in awe.

    Matthew was a private banker who helped his extremely wealthy clients hide money offshore. At the very least, he was knowingly assisting the ultrarich in avoiding taxes. He was approached by the Dept. of Justice who were investigating Swiss United corporate CEOs, politicians accident a few days later. The leak was the biggest in history. The repercussions were significant.

    Fairly predictable ‘ripped from the headlines’ plot: anyone who has not been asleep for the last few years will recognize the characters and story line. Definitely a page turner of a book, however, and destined to be a m

    I love a good mystery or detective story. This piece was blocked in reasonably well and moved along, and I did finish it, but this is not writing. The author tells you what to feel, what to think, instead of evoking such thing through perceptive detail. I felt like it was written by an accountant at gunpoint. It would have been worth three dollars on a long flight. I didn’t care what happened to any of the characters. On the bright side,

    The, ‘will keep you guessing’ tag line is correct. The book is definitely a who do you trust? who is telling the truth?
    Quite a clever plot based on insider/corrupt banking and whistle blowers. The author keeps the pace going throughout, which is an achievement.
    The storyline is narrated, mainly, by two characters a investigative reporter, Marina and Annabelle a banker’s wife. Annabelle’s husba

    Very good. A real keep you guessing to the end thriller. There are several unforgiveable cultural errors which would have benefitted from a little research (the currency in Switzerland is the Franc, not the Euro, and you don't find "double diamond" ski runs in Europe, amongst others). But over all I enjoyed it very much, I found it quite intelligent, which is a pleasing rarity.

    But notwithstanding her CV she would have been advised to research the sort of security that now exists in British (and European) bank

    First I’ll start by saying this was a book club book. Not my usual choice of reading but I thoroughly enjoyed it.
    Well rounded characters, great sense of danger & not too technical given the subject matter. Great twist just before the end didn’t see that coming.
    Would definitely recommend and plan to read by this author.

    This book is heralded as a high suspense thriller portrayed over several continents. It's quite clever in viewing the enfolding mystery through the eyes of three key characters although I cannot say I was ever on
