Publisher's Summary

A fast-paced and impossibly gripping thriller for fans of The Woman in the Window and Need to Know

The only thing worse than finding out that your husband is dead is discovering the secrets he left behind.

Annabel's seemingly perfect expatriate life in Geneva is shattered when her banker husband Matthew's plane crashes in the Alps. When Annabel finds clues that his death may not be all it seems, she puts herself in the crosshairs of powerful enemies and questions whether she really knew her husband at all. 

Meanwhile, journalist Marina is investigating Swiss United, the bank where Matthew worked. But when she uncovers evidence of a shocking global financial scandal that implicates someone close to home, she is forced to make an impossible choice.

Accents worthy of Peter Sellers

I did enjoy this fast-paced if rather far-fetched story. Glossy escapism mixed with international financial shenanigans offers a lot.

But oh my goodness the narrator really should not have attempted to do German, French and Swiss accents. On a par with “ve haff vays ov making you talk”. Better to read the print version.
