Amazon has revealed its latest project: The streaming service will next adapt Cristina Alger's best-selling novel The Banker's Wife for TV. The news was announced Saturday at the Television Critics Association summer press tour.

Set in the world of global finance, the thriller follows two women as they chase down answers following a mysterious plane crash. After shining a light on offshore accounts obviously meant to be kept in the dark because they're offshore accounts, the two find themselves in the crosshairs of a larger conspiracy involving money laundering, politics, and a complicated web of terrorists and criminals.
