An involuntary bachelor at forty-three, his only lasting relationship with a woman involves his mom.

Kavi, a poor teenager when he emigrated from India, is now the chief financial officer at ADG, one of the largest companies in the world. During an anniversary dinner, Kavi gets word of a scandal at ADG. Weeks later, it?s pinned on him. He?s indicted for securities fraud ? maximum penalty, life in prison. Although he?s innocent, he?s petrified at the thought of facing a jury. He explores alternatives, including those that aren?t legal.

Only one thing is certain: Carl?s life will never be the same. In this gripping financial thriller, corruption, backstabbing and lies converge as an honest man considers criminal acts to save his friend from being punished for a crime he didn?t commit.
