The Darlings by Cristina Alger

I enjoyed the audio version of this book very much. I was drawn to its portrait of a privileged family with its descriptions of the Manhattan elite and all their trappings. I am a fan of family drama and any book that is set in an environment of which the author obviously has so much knowledge. Alger’s experience on Wall Street shines through with her precise descriptions of the financial debacle, the temptations, and the loopholes. Reading this during the pandemic and the associated economic tragedies, it was oddly comforting to remember the aftermath of the 2007-2009 post crash world and how resilient the world can be. Anyway, I admired the ending – really great. Besides having the requisite mystery and great plot threads, Alger also has a gift for language and turns of phrase which made this book an all-around delight.
