If you enjoy dark fic­tion about fam­i­ly rela­tion­ships and decep­tion, keep an eye out for a new nov­el com­ing out this April from best­selling author Randy Susan Meyers:

You got­ta love a glitzy book cov­er. The Wid­ow of Wall Street opens in 2009 with a vis­it to the Ray Brook Fed­er­al Cor­rec­tion­al Insti­tu­tion, where Phoebe Pierce’s hus­band, Jake, is impris­oned on fraud charges fol­low­ing the dis­cov­ery of the elab­o­rate Ponzi scheme upon which he built their for­tune. The nov­el fol­lows Phoebe from the begin­nings of her rela­tion­ship with Jake in the sum­mer of 1960 through the present day, liv­ing with her husband’s noto­ri­ety and the world’s cen­sure and sus­pi­cion, remind­ing read­ers with that spark­ly city sky­line that all that glit­ters is not gold.

Nat Bern­stein is the for­mer Man­ag­er of Dig­i­tal Con­tent & Media, JBC Net­work Coor­di­na­tor, and Con­tribut­ing Edi­tor at the Jew­ish Book Coun­cil and a grad­u­ate of Hamp­shire College.
