Description

Dale Paul is a witty, self-absorbed rogue and the hedge fund whale. He enjoys a life of self-delusion that allows him to gamble other people's money for his personal enrichment. When his biggest gamble -- involving the pensions of the American military -- fails, charm and boarding school connections aren't enough to save Dale Paul from jail time for fraud. Confronted with nothing less than the challenge of understanding himself and his place in the age of the new robber-barons, he has a choice: repair his fractured relationships with his family and become a new man or throw himself into another deadly, high-stakes scheme in an attempt to make himself rich again, gambling this time on the lives and deaths of old, frail celebrities with his fellow inmates. Win or lose, Dale Paul goes through a sea change that may (or may not) make a new man of him. But will the enterprising gambler get caught in his own con?

Reviews

"A must read for the dead pool generation."

"Susan Swan's salacious new novel, THE DEAD CELEBRITIES CLUB, is a tale of greed, hubris and fraud--and the fallout that follows. In other words, it's a financial fable worthy of the age."

"Susan Swan's new protagonist, Dale Paul, is a self-obsessed hedge fund guy with a poncy way of speaking and a penchant for playing fast and loose with other people's money. Yes, he's terrible but he's also a terrific character and the reason you will want to keep turning the pages on Swan's latest novel, The Dead Celebrities Club."

"Make no mistake: this is a very funny novel."
