When tragedy strikes in the supposedly secure lab, Pia and classmate George Wilson investigate. Meanwhile, two ex-Wall Street whiz kids race to find ways to control actuarial data and securitize the policies of the aged and infirm for profit. As Pia and George dig deeper, one question remains unanswered: Is someone attempting to manipulate private insurance information to allow investors to benefit from the deaths of others?"--P.  of cover.
