Fallen Angel: The Making and Unmaking of Rajat Gupta

 A tragedy of Greek proportions, this is the story of an Indian icon at the centre of the biggest insider trading case in the history of the United States of America.

On 24 October 2012, Rajat Gupta, former head of the worlds most respected management consultancy firm, McKinsey & Co., was sentenced to two years in prison by a New York court for securities fraud and insider trading. Why did this happen? 

Based on extensive research, including transcripts of FBI-wiretap conversations, Fallen Angel is an insightful account of a remarkable man and the extraordinary events surrounding him: this is the real story of Rajat Gupta, an orphaned immigrant from India who managed to reach dizzying heights in the US corporate sector. Although the verdict is out, the mystery remains: several jury members were in tears after delivering the verdict, and nearly everyone who has known Gupta believes he is innocent so what really happened? 

With its almost thriller-like cast of real-life characters, Fallen Angel is a page-turner that explores the complex layers of this human drama.
