Dead Money

0 out of 5

They said you can’t take your money with you. What if they were wrong?

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 the characters grapple with unprecedented moral dilemmas, their choices will affect the rest of humanity.

Profound, intense and plotted with unexpected twists and turns, Dead Money is a timely and illuminating satire about religion, capitalism, and how the very things that make us human can ultimately lead to our demise.

“A memorable premise lifts Adiga’s impressive debut. Adiga makes the central conceit work as he effectively sends up the tendency of people to believe anything.”—Publishers Weekly
