Product Description

By the author of the bestselling novels The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel and Tulip Fever, the “tense and splendid” (Wall Street Journal) story of human frailty, temptation, and tragedy

Bestselling author Deborah Moggach, who “captures mood through careful choice of detail and has a deft sense of the grotesque” (James McNamara, The New York Times Book Review) delivers an extremely powerful novel about the consequences of greed and deceit in her gripping page-turner Final Demand.

Natalie is a girl who should be going somewhere. Although beautiful, bright, and ambitious, she’s stuck in a dead-end job in the accounts department of a telecommunications company, living her life through wild weekends and yearning for something more. While processing the final notice payments on cus­tomer’s accounts, Natalie devises a simple little scam that could change her life in a major way. And since it’s only a minor crime―nobody’s going to get hurt― she doesn’t hesitate to follow through her scheme.

But when Natalie’s selfish actions have tragic conse­quences, she learns there’s no such thing as a victimless crime. A cautionary tale that “captures the soulless sign of the times” (Jerry Broton, New York Times bestselling author), Final Demand is a beautifully written, emotionally taut story about the battle between love, envy, and misguided aspirations, and our own frailty in the face of temptation.

Deborah Moggach is the author of many successful novels including Tulip Fever, the recent film adaptation of which stars Alicia Vikander, and The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, which was made into two very popular movies starring Judi Dench, Bill Nighy, and Maggie Smith. Her screenplays include the film of Pride and Prejudice, which was nominated for a BAFTA. Her novels In The Dark, Heartbreak Hotel, and Final Demand are published by Overlook.
