Publisher's Summary

It's an offer you can't refuse. Who would not wish to be the man in charge of Ankh-Morpork's Royal Mint and the bank next door? It's a job for life. But, as former con-man Moist von Lipwig is learning, the life is not necessarily for long.The chief cashier is almost certainly a vampire. There's something nameless in the cellar (and the cellar itself is pretty nameless). A 300-year-old wizard is after his girlfriend, and he's about to be exposed as a fraud - but the Assassins Guild might get him first. In fact, a lot of people want him dead. Oh...and every day he has to take the chairman for "walkies". Everywhere he looks he's making enemies. What he should be doing is...making money!

What the Critics Say

"Pratchett throws in a mad scientist with a working economic model, disappearing gold reserves and an army of golems, once more using the Disc as an educational and entertaining mirror of human squabbles and flaws." (Publishers Weekly)

Money makes the world go round

An abridged version? Perhaps it would have been better if it had not been abridged, but it was a very enjoyable listen even so. I read the book, but thought this was a seemless story that stood up by itself.

The adventures of Moist von L. and the goings-on in Ankh Morpork are always amusing (see 'Going Postal'). Now with the unstability in the world baking sector it makes the story sharper, more astutue and highlights some of the ins and outs of the banking world.

Highly relevant today and well read too.
