9780099421931: Final Demand

By the author of the bestselling novels The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel and Tulip Fever, the poignant story of human frailty, temptation, and tragedy

“A chilling, impeccably plotted novel” (Cosmopolitan UK) by the bestselling author of The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

Praised as “extraordinarily skillful” by award-winning writer Anita Brookner, Deborah Moggach has written an extremely powerful novel about the beautiful, bright, and ambitious Natalie, who should be doing something with her life. But instead, she’s stuck in a dead-end job and instead of improving her place in the world by her own efforts, takes advantage of the honesty of those around her, ultimately leaving them damaged and broken. Of course she denies responsibility, even when confronted with undeniable evidence that she is involved. So, when she sees a chance to change her life, she doesn’t hesitate to take it, even if it’s at the expense of someone else. After all, it’s only a minor crime. Nobody’s going to get hurt. But Natalie’s actions actually do have unforeseen and tragic consequences, and the ultimate question is will she be capable to meet the final demand to own up to what she has done? Emotionally taut and beautifully written, Final Demand is a cautionary tale about the battle between greed and love, and our own frailty in the face of temptation.

About the Author:

Deborah Moggach is the author of many successful novels, including Heartbreak Hotel and In The Dark, both published by Overlook. Her novel Tulip Fever has been adapted for film and The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel was made into a very popular movies starring Judi Dench, Bill Nighy, and Maggie Smith.

Review:

“Tense and splendid . . . Moggach, a versatile writer . . . has all the empathetic and stylistic gifts needed to put a reader inside the lives of a dozen disparate characters and make one care about their fates?even that of a callous protagonist who may (or may not) experience a last-minute redemptive epiphany.”
- Tom Nolan, Wall Street Journal

“Going inside the mind of a pretty, freckled villain who commits a seemingly victimless crime creates a page-turner with just enough moral ambiguity to ensure an unexpected ending.”
- Kirkus

“Brisk and neatly plotted, with a full-bodied cast headed by the irrepressible Natalie.”
- Booklist

“A suspenseful crime drama doesn’t seem like Moggach’s usual fair, but her intriguing take on facing the consequences of our actions defies genre, proving that sometimes stories of theft and crime are the most intriguingly human of all.”
- Literally, Darling
