Book Description:
Augustus Melmotte is a fraudulent foreign financier who preys on dissolute nobility using charm to tempt the weak into making foolish investments in his dubious schemes. Persuaded to put money into a notional plot to run a railroad from San Francisco to Santa Cruz, the capricious gambler Felix Carbury soon becomes one of his victims. But as Melmotte climbs higher in society, his web of deceit which also draws in characters as diverse as his own daughter Marie and Felix's mother, the pulp novelist Lady Carbury begins to unravel. A radical exploration of the dangers associated with speculative capitalism, this is a fascinating satire about a society on the verge of moral bankruptcy.
