On 24 October 2012, Rajat Gupta, former head of the world’s 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
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

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.
