"An impressive debut."-Publishers Weekly

They said you can''t take your money with you when you die.

What if they were wrong? Srinath Adiga''s timely satire 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.
