Dr Alan Dove, CEO of biotechnology company, Pneumatech, wants to buy a competitor who specialises in cosmetics, F-ACE. Enter Ivan Strawe, evil genius head of M & A at Wolkenbank, who'll find a way to lower the F-ACE share price with the help of a hedge fund that's only too happy to help. Meanwhile Mary, who surprisingly retains a conscience in this dog-eat-dog world, is recruited by the Treasury to investigate dodgy dealings at hedge funds. Her world and that of Dove and Kona are set on a collision course."@en ;
