Pia Grazdani is an exceptional yet aloof medical student
working closely with Columbia University Medical Center's premier
scientist on cutting edge research that could revolutionize health
care by creating replacement organs for critically ill patients.
But when tragedy strikes in the lab, Pia, with the help of
classmate George Wilson, launches an investigation into the
unforeseen calamity in the hospital's supposedly secure biosafety
Meanwhile, two ex-Wall Street whiz-kids think they've found
another loadstone in the nation's multi-trillion dollar life
insurance industry, and race to find ways to control actuarial data
and securitize the policies of the aged and infirm to make another
As Pia and George dig deeper into the events at the lab, one
question remains unanswered: is someone attempting to manipulate
private insurance information to allow investors to benefit from
the deaths of others?
