A detective agency in San Francisco is hired by a company called Compassion West, to work as ""living benefit brokers"" for death futures. In secular terms, a Viaticum Settlement means provisions for a journey. This type of settlement is used to give terminally ill patients with life insurance policies, up-front money to enjoy the last few months of their life.

They can receive 60% to 80% of the policy depending on their life expectancy as determined by their medical records and doctors.

The detective agency runs into problems when one of the detective's fiancee is murdered. Then finding out some of the Compassion West's clients are becoming casualties of unusual accidents.
