Insider trading – white-collar crime. It’s harmless to everyone except a few investors. Or is it? Consider a hedge fund that blocks emergency calls, making profitable trades while people lie dying. In Death By Arbitrage or Live Low Die High, computer scientist Evan Olsson survives a hotel fire and thinks his problems are over. Unfortunately, his predictable work life is upended when his FBI customer pushes him into a new project – to second-guess the SEC’s pursuit of stock market manipulators. Evan discovers a San Francisco company, Raptor Holdings, whose financial transactions are just too perfect to be legal. Both the hotel fire and a fatal plane crash suggest that Raptor has an inside track on the emergency response system, and may be committing murder to fatten its profits. With good friends, technology and a robotic transformation, Evan uncovers the hidden tricks of their business. Unfortunately, Evan becomes prey as well as pursuer and finds his life in immediate danger. As he tries to dodge a murderous adversary, Evan has to deal with risk of a different kind: an imminent explosion as the two women in his life collide. The novel and its multiple plotlines accelerate to a fast-moving climax. Death By Arbitrage or Live Low Die High pushes the boundaries of the mystery genre with its blend of adventure and romance in a real-world setting. The work of scientist-author Urno Barthel, it continues the story begun in Death By Probability and Death By Tech. The novels are ideal for fans of mysteries and techno-thrillers, with convincing characters who pull readers into a new and exciting world.
