Death Play by Al Borowitz
The term “death play” describes “a stock strategy that buys stock on the belief that a key executive will die, the company will be dissolved, and shares will command a higher price at their private market value.”
In the novel Death Play, the stock broker Tony Trask begins with stock strategy and ends with deadlier techniques.
