Where Angels Prey is a rip roaring piece of (crime) fiction that travels from New York to India via many countries. At the very core, it is a story of extreme greed on the part of a few to amass a huge fortune. Just as Don Corleone says in Mario Puzo's 'The Godfather', "Behind every successful fortune there is a crime”, the plot in Where Angels Prey has a whole gamut of characters, each of whom is an important link in the chain of events that lead to this massive global crime. And what is interesting is that, this UNIQUE and gripping plot is presented with all the twists and turns you would find in a commercial film screenplay almost.
While the rest of the world reels under a severe financial crisis, Wall Street pours huge money into India to help its poor - a somewhat strange happening indeed. Intrigued, Robert Bradlee, senior correspondent with The New York Post, sets off to investigate, along with his journalist friend, Chandresh. Little does he know that his search for a scoop would lead him through a complex multi-pronged web of deceit, fraud, manipulation and financial crime, remote controlled from distant lands by an entire chain of financial sector stakeholders.
Gripping, racy and meticulously researched, this financial crime thriller weaves in and out of the affluent world of high-powered boardrooms and the gruelling poverty of the remotest villages of India, to reveal the devastating truths that often lurk behind “good intentions.”
