Thomas & Mercer, 2015
Agent: Jill Marr
Twenty-three-year-old Elaine Kelly doesn't earn much as a bank teller, and most of her salary goes toward caring for her terminally ill mother. When a lonely old man who deposits money at her bank every week gets hit and killed by a delivery truck, Elaine, a good Irish girl from Queens, thinks she's found the answer to her problems. She'll just transfer $1 million from the dead man's account into hers.
Except that the lonely old man may not have been who he seemed. And when you take $1 million that isn't yours, it can cost you...way more.
Acclaimed author Jonathan Stone's pulse-pounding thriller takes readers from the darkest corners of New York's financial empire into a shadowy hierarchy of wealth and power. The Teller follows the money, and takes readers along for the wild ride.
"Stone's plotting is tight as a drum, and his writing lean, with short, staccato sentences that create an immediate and immersive experience. Fans of Stone's other suspense titles will be thrilled, and newcomers will scramble for more."
