Vinod Khosla: "Every book by Deepak Malhotra has been great.
Professor Kilmer, a renowned historian of war and diplomacy, is collected from him home and whisked off to Washington, D.C. Thrust into the highest levels of government as an adviser to the President, the young historian must come to terms with the seemingly impossible, figure out how to navigate a world where not everything is as it seems, and use all the skills and knowledge he has acquired in his life to help save humanity from a conflict of truly historic proportions.
A novel that re-examines the human condition and weaves together - in a truly unique and exhilarating fashion - the eternal themes of war & peace, strategy & serendipity, love & friendship, courage & fear, and the bounds of possibility & imagination. Replete with insights that will make you pause, and lessons that you will want to share. Most of all... a journey you will not soon forget.
