Elizabeth Greenwood was confronting her six-figure student loan debt when she decided to investigate the lengths that people will go to in an effort to escape reality - even faking death. Her book, Playing Dead: A Journey Through the World of Death and Fraud, is a deep dive into “pseudocide” and the world of death fraud. She investigates black market morgues in the Philippines, and the services of a $30,000 consultant who promises to make you disappear.
