Summary

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 listeners 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 listeners along for the wild ride.

Wow. And not in the good way.

While I love Jonathan Stone's characters (they're complex and inexplicable the way real humans usually are), this one was hard to swallow. While I have to admire the ability to construct such a story, it just really doesn't seem like this could ever really happen in the real world. There's not much I can say about this without total spoilers, but I'll try. It'a the story of a bank teller who hastily and almost unthinkingly transfers money from a man's account because he just died outside the bank, and the troublesome consequences that follow that action. Since I don't know enough about how the legality of illegal money transfers work, I guess I can't say that it was ridiculous how it ended, but it really was. I loved Moving Day and bought this without reading the reviews. I'd best not do that again.

Really good

Nice juxtaposition between Catholic guilt and professional international criminals. "Good Girl" commits an impulsive financial crime and is drawn into sordid criminal band. I enjoyed the "counterpoint" in the story. The first half of the book, though, was better and better written. Fast paced. I recommend.
