“An impressive debut.” - Publishers Weekly
They said you can’t take your money with you when you die. What if they were wrong?
Dead Money is a timely satire that explores the pitfalls of modern capitalism and the dangerous power of myth.
Hong Kong, 2002. A stock market trader desperate to pay off a gangster debt invents a scam: Afterlife Dollars. A product inspired by an ancient Chinese custom that allows people to buy their way into heaven.
It’s the beginning of a dizzying chain reaction that ripples in Mumbai, where one man does the unthinkable to secure his afterlife—while thousands of miles away in Amsterdam, another man races against time to stop an apocalypse. As a cast of larger-than-life characters grapple with unprecedented moral dilemmas, their choices will affect the rest of humanity.
Profound, exhilarating and full of unexpected twists, DEAD MONEY balances intelligence and dark humour with compassion, empathy and hope. Its cleverness lies in its ability to convince us that the impossible can happen—a compelling, thought-provoking read at a time when the world stares at an uncertain future.
A perfectly timed satire with a central premise so close to the bone, it gives you chills.”
George Penney, author of Fly In, Fly Out; Irrepressible You; Summer Harvest.
Exhilarating pace, intriguing proposition, and plenty of dark laughs: Dead Money’s the thriller I’ll be burning
through in the afterlife.
