Randy Susan Meyers is the internationally bestselling author of THE WIDOW OF WALL STREET, named one of the best books of 2017 by PopSugar. Buzzfeed wrote, “A provocative tale of loyalty and morality, this novel will introduce you to the scandalous side of New York.” The book begins with this line: "Phoebe never hated her husband more than when she visited him in jail." Associated Press called the novel "compelling." Her third novel, ACCIDENTS OF MARRIAGE was chosen by People Magazine as a "Pick of the Week." The Boston Globe wrote of her second novel, THE COMFORT OF LIES, “Sharp and biting, and sometimes wickedly funny, but it has a lot of heart, too.” THE MURDERER'S DAUGHTERS, Meyers, called a 'knock-out debut ' by the LA Times, was chosen as a month-long national book club pick by Target. Her novels were twice deemed Must Read Fiction by the “Massachusetts Center for the Book”, writing, “The clear and distinctive voice of Randy Susan Meyers will have you enraptured and wanting more.” She loves visiting book clubs (and wrote a limited-edition cookbook and short book on women and their relationship to money for them.) Randy lives in Boston where she teaches at the Grub Street Writers Center.
ABOUT THE WIDOW OF WALL STREET
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, is expertly explored in this “ripped-from-the-headlines story about love, ambition, and forgiveness” (PopSugar)—perfect for fans of the TV show Billions.
Phoebe recognizes fire in Jake Pierce’s belly from the moment they meet as teenagers. After they marry and he creates a financial dynasty, she trusts him without hesitation—unaware his hunger for success hides a dark talent for deception.
But when Phoebe learns her husband’s triumph and vast reach rests on an elaborate Ponzi scheme, her world unravels. While Jake is trapped in the web of his deceit, Phoebe is caught facing an unbearable choice. Her children refuse to see her if she remains at their father’s side, but abandoning him feels cruel and impossible.
From penthouse to prison, with tragic consequences rippling well beyond Wall Street, Randy Susan Meyers’s latest novel exposes a woman struggling to survive and then redefine her life as her world crumbles. “An engrossing emotional journey” (Kirkus Reviews) and USA TODAY bestselling author Diane Chamberlain raves, “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.”
