							Phoebe has loved Jake Pierce since childhood and that love continues without hesitation while she watches him create a financial dynasty. But when Phoebe learns that her husband's triumphs are the result of an elaborate Ponzi scheme, her world unravels. Lies underpin her life and marriage. And as Jake's crime is uncovered, the world obsesses over her: Did she know her gilded life was fabricated by fraud? Did she partner with her husband to hustle billions from pensioners, charities, and CEOs? Was she his accomplice in stealing from their friends and neighbors? In the aftermath of Jake's deception, Phoebe faces an unbearable choice: if she remains at his side, her children refuse to see her, but abandoning the man she loves feels impossible.

"Carefully written to gradually expose the emotional hold Jake builds over his wife, the novel is an engaging and sharp reflection of the rapid changes in marital dynamics over the course of the 20th century, as well as a cautionary tale about the dangers and allure of ambition in the heyday of Wall Street." - Publishers Weekly

"Compelling. This is a great read...An engrossing emotional journey." - Kirkus Reviews

"I dare you not to read Randy Susan Meyers' The Widow of Wall Street in one big gulp. What is it like to be married to a disgraced wolf of Wall Street, and how do you survive the aftermath of a scandal? Meyers answers the question with a fascinating page turner that somehow manages both to indict and absolve." - Melanie Benjamin, New York Times Bestselling author

"I'll be honest: High finance isn't my thing and I worried I wouldn't be able to get into The Widow of Wall Street. How wrong I was! With all the suspense of a thriller, The Widow of Wall Street quickly pulled me into the story and didn't let me go until the last page. Randy Susan Meyers made me feel, on a visceral level, the giddiness of Phoebe and Jake's rise to power and the mounting panic as their lives and marriage began to crumble. Brilliantly executed and beautifully written, The Widow of Wall Street should have wide appeal." - Diane Chamberlain, USA Today Bestselling Author of Pretending to Dance
