Overview

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.

Almost without thinking, 23-year-old Queens bank teller Elaine Kelly, the protagonist of this uneven crime thriller from Stone (Moving Day), transfers $1.3 million from a customer’s account to her own after the customer, elderly Antonio Desirio, is struck dead by a truck in the street outside the bank. Elaine contemplates using the money to start life anew, perhaps in Buenos Aires or Rome, but complications arise. The police discover that Desirio made similar suspicious deposits at many banks. Then a second Antonio Desirio appears at Elaine’s bank, demanding his money. The men behind the money are scary, and Elaine soon discovers she has no place to hide. NYPD Det. Evan Nussbaum offers sympathy, but she can’t tell him her problem without confessing her crime. Stone strains credulity as Elaine goes from teller to captive to hero in less-than-convincing fashion. Jill Marr, Sandra Djikstra Literary Agency. (Apr.)
