What if you could take your money with you when you die? DEAD MONEY is a dark 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 Afterlife Dollars. 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.
