THE BANKER’S WIFE – Cristina Alger

Check back later for the #allthebookreviews thoughts on this one 🙂


My Thoughts: 4/5 stars!

This was my introduction to Cristina Alger and it will not be my last time reading her work! THE BANKER’S WIFE is a thriller focused on financial gains and the role it plays in the lives of many. Alger takes us all over the world trying to put the pieces together until the very end.

We follow two perspectives in this novel. That of Mariana, a journalist out of New York, and Annabel, the wife of a wealthy businessman living in Geneva. What do their lives have in common? How are they connected? The less I say about any of that the better for the reading experience!

I have to say, I really enjoyed the part about when Annabel was reading a book – some psychological thriller with “girl” in the title, with an unreliable narrator, that was like all the others. That made me laugh a little. Don’t let this one fool you, it stands out from the others with girl/wife/woman in the title. Alger has a uniquely woven and well-written thriller that will have you flying through the chapters to see what will happen to Mariana and Annabel!

If you’re looking for a great new thriller with a couple of strong female leads, then I would highly recommend picking up THE BANKER’S WIFE.

  1. I thought this novel was great! It was very different for me, and I was not sure I would like the world of high finance, but I found the whole thing interesting. I liked Marina and Annabel a lot.
