Pratchett takes on the bankers and the financial system in the thirty-sixth Discworld novel.
'Whoever said you can't fool an honest man wasn't one'
The banks are facing a crisis, and this time it's too serious even for the old boys' club to sort it out - this time, they've sunk to government intervention. But opening the vaults to public scrutiny brings a whole host of problems for those at the top: people want to know where the money's gone, they want loans, reasonable interest rates and much much worse - accountability. The fortress of high finance is crumbling, and it may be time for a change of management - before it's too late.

"Terry Pratchett is a comic genius." Daily Express "Although Terry Pratchett's comic novels are set in the imaginary Discworld, do not assume that they are divorced from contemporary concerns. His latest is almost spookily relevant...As bright and shiny as a newly minted coin; clever, engaging and laugh-out-loud funny." The Times
