10 Novels About Lost Wealth and the Great Recession

The Craigslist Murders by Brenda Cullerton

This crime novel revels in the pent-up anger of an attractive interior designer working for a series of rich and needy souls who argue about minute fees even as they order another costly renovation project to be done. It’s enough to drive a woman to murder — and Charlotte Wolfe does just that in this hilarious and unsettling novel about class war. Upper East Siders beware…this killer wears Louboutins.
