Behind the prim gates of the Greenwich, Connecticut, McMansions, Wall Street whizzes turn their attentions from mortgages to another possible profit source: the $25 trillion life-insurance industry. By securitizing the policies of the old and sick, they hope to make another financial killing.

At the same time, Natalie Savondnik and Ronald Goodall—two exceptional yet aloof medical residents—are working closely with their medical center's premier scientist on cutting-edge diabetes research. When their mentor dies suddenly, they launch a quiet investigation. As they dig deeper, it becomes clear that the scientist's death was not from natural causes. Is it possible someone is manipulating private life insurance information to allow investors to benefit from the deaths of others?

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Lisa Ainsworth | 2/20/2014

    " Loved this book, but then Cook & Crichton are two that seldom go wrong in my opinion. This topic was esp. interesting & timely for the world today & in my life. I have a special place in my heart for stem cell research & organ regeneration. Transplants are needed by so many & how can we keep it from becoming a "money making or stealing" program? My favorite books are character driven & the main character of Pia & the ex-Wall street wizard made me furious while keeping me turning the pages. As usual, Robin Cook can do no wrong in keeping me coming back for more. "
