Odious Lusting After Finance, renamed in the TV series as The Complete History of Injustice or Odious Lusting After Fortunes, was a book in The Penultimate Peril.


Jerome Squalor wrote the book and said it is about the injustices of the world. According to Jerome, it "chronicles the history of greedy villains, treacherous girlfriends, bungling bankers, and all the other people responsible for injustice."

It was submitted to the High Court by Jerome at the Hotel Denouement to prove that the Baudelaires are innocent.
