In this stunning thriller, Dr. Arya Krish, an accomplished researcher, physician, philanthropist, father, and husband explores the outer edges of "the ends justify the means." Having cultivated Beacon Medical Institute into a premier research group and medical center, he dedicates his life and resources to humanitarian projects at home and abroad. As a result, Dr. Krish fi nds himself entangled not only in an internal confl ict of choice and action, but also the murky realm of corporate espionage, corrupt bureaucracy, philanthropy, and medical breakthrough. All the while, his family's past haunts him and ultimately drives his being and becoming.

Phalgun Prativadi grew up in Maryland near Washington D.C. He went to Penn State and is currently an infectious diseases physician in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Writing and music have always been hobbies. This is his fi rst novel, and he hopes to continue the story in future works.
