‘As bright and shiny as a newly minted coin; clever, engaging and laugh-out-loud funny’ The Times
The Discworld is very much like our own – if our own were to consist of a flat planet balanced on the back of four elephants which stand on the back of a giant turtle, that is . . .
Whoever said you can't fool an honest man wasn't one.
The Royal Bank is facing a crisis, and it’s time for a change of management.
There are a few problems that may arise with the job . . . The Chief Cashier is almost certainly a vampire – there's something nameless in the cellar and it turns out that the Royal Mint runs at a loss. Meanwhile, people actually want to know where the money’s gone. It's a job for life.
But, as former con-man Moist von Lipwig is learning, that life is not necessarily a long one.
He’s about to be exposed as a fraud, but if he’s lucky the Assassins’ Guild might get him first. In fact, a lot of people want him dead. Everywhere he looks he's making enemies.
Oh. And every day he has to take the Chairman for walkies.
The Discworld novels can be read in any order but Making Money is the second book in the Moist von Lipwig series.

Victorian London; a mysterious metropolis blanketed in fog, made up of an eclectic mix of people playing the part that life has assigned them...
