When Bernie Madoff was exposed as a fraud and took the economy down with him, I wondered, like so many others, how much of a role his wife played in all of this. Meyers takes on her complex story in this fictionalized account of a marriage, a financial empire, fraud, and a family's dissolution. As someone who finds the world of finance both dull and difficult, I was especially impressed with her clear rendition of how the scheme began and how it finally unraveled. Most moving is her portrait of Phoebe, the wife who committed herself to her marriage and her family, who knew and didn't know. Highly recommended.
A provocative new novel by bestselling author Randy Susan Meyers about the seemingly blind love of a wife for her husband as he conquers Wall Street, and her extraordinary, perhaps foolish, loyalty during his precipitous fall.
Two sensational unsolved crimes--one in the past, another in the present--are linked by one man's memory and self-deception in this chilling novel of literary suspense from National Book Award finalist Dan Chaon.
