Table of contents

When the Flinders Aluminum Fabrication Corporation burns to the ground, killing George Avery, suspicion falls on CEO Arthur Jackson. In fact, Mismo Fire Insurance Company is so certain that the fire was deliberately set that it has denied the insurance claim. Jackson, the sole stockholder in the financially troubled corporation, has filed a civil action to recover damages against Mismo for the denied claim. Mismo asserts that Jackson conspired with others to burn the plant in order to fraudulently collect the insurance policy.

Did we mention that the deceased Avery is a suspected “torch,” implicated in the burning of two other commercial buildings in Nita City? That reputation isn’t helping Jackson’s case, but he claims he hired Avery, a talented designer, to help him modernize the Flinders plant. The intrigue grows when it is revealed that one of the witnesses against Jackson has a serious axe to grind that could be clouding her vision.

This entertaining file presents a well-balanced case that can be also tried as a condensed or an advanced experience.
