New York Times bestseller
THE BOOK THAT EXPLAINS WHY RUSSIANS WANTED TO MEET WITH THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN
“Part John Grisham-like thriller, part business and political memoir.” —The New York Times
“[Red Notice] does for investing in Russia and the former Soviet Union what Liar’s Poker did for our understanding of Salomon Brothers, Wall Street, and the mortgage-backed securities business in the 1980s. Browder’s business saga meshes well with the story of corruption and murder in Vladimir Putin’s Russia, making Red Notice an early candidate for any list of the year’s best books” (Fortune).
This is a story about an accidental activist. Bill Browder started out his adult life as the Wall Street maverick whose instincts led him to Russia just after the breakup of the Soviet Union, where he made his fortune.
Along the way he exposed corruption, and when he did, he barely escaped with his life. His Russian lawyer Sergei Magnitsky wasn’t so lucky: he ended up in jail, where he was tortured to death. That changed Browder forever. He saw the murderous heart of the Putin regime and has spent the last half decade on a campaign to expose it. Because of that, he became Putin’s number one enemy, especially after Browder succeeded in having a law passed in the United States—The Magnitsky Act—that punishes a list of Russians implicated in the lawyer’s murder. Putin famously retaliated with a law that bans Americans from adopting Russian orphans.
A financial caper, a crime thriller, and a political crusade, Red Notice is the story of one man taking on overpowering odds to change the world, and also the story of how, without intending to, he found meaning in his life.
"Reads like a classic thriller, with an everyman hero alone and in danger in a hostile foreign city . . . but it's all true."--Lee Child, bestselling author of the Jack Reacher series "The story of Sergei Magnitsky's life and death is a shocking true-life thriller, and Bill Browder was the man to write it."--Tom Stoppard "This book reads like a thriller, but it's a true, important, and inspiring real story. Bill Browder is an amazing moral crusader, and his book is a must-read for anyone who seeks to understand Russia, Putin, or the challenges of doing business in the world today."--Walter Isaacson, author of Steve Jobs and The Innovators "A fascinating and unexpected story." --Mitch Albom, author of Tuesdays with Morrie "Browder's true story is a heart-in-your-throat page turner, and the only close-up look I know of what it's like to take on Putin. It is also a moving account of a man who found his calling, and ended up winning in the end."--Bryan Burrough, co-author of Barbarians at the Gate and author of Public Enemies and The Big Rich "A fascinating, heart-stopping account of how to take on Putin--and win. It's exciting to read about Browder's roller-coaster ride to wealth in Russia, and to learn how his compassion for Sergei Magnitsky, his murdered lawyer, inspired his memorable struggle against the venal apparatchiks of a corrupt state. This is the gripping--and absolutely true--story behind the Magnitsky Law, a signal advance in human rights."--Geoffrey Robertson, human rights lawyer and author of Crimes Against Humanity: The Struggle For Global Justice "Bill Browder has become one of the most sincerely hated men in the Kremlin over the years--and that is something to be incredibly proud of. . . . This book shows the difference that one person can make when they refuse to back down, as told by a fellow soldier in the battle to hold Putin to account."--Nadya Tolokonnikova and Masha Alekhina, members of Pussy Riot "It's a riveting account--and really, how could it not be?...Engrossing."--The New York Times Book Review "This indispensable look at the brutal realities of the Putin regime is of even greater relevance thanks to Bill Browder's unique expertise and personal experience inside the belly of the beast."--Garry Kasparov, Chess Grandmaster and author of How Life Imitates Chess "In Red Notice, Bill Browder tells the harrowing and inspiring story of how his fight for justice in Russia made him an unlikely international human rights leader and Vladimir Putin's number-one enemy. It is the book for anyone interested in understanding the culture of corruption and impunity in Putin's Russia today, and Browder's heroic example of how to fight back."--Senator John McCain "The first half of Red Notice traces Browder's improbable journey from prep-school washout through college, business school, and a series of consulting and Wall Street jobs before becoming Russia's largest foreign investor....This book-within-a-book does for investing in Russia and the former Soviet Union what Liar's Poker did for our understanding of Salomon Brothers, Wall Street, and the mortgage-backed securities business in the 1980s. Browder's business saga meshes well with the story of corruption and murder in Vladimir Putin's Russia, making Red Notice an early candidate for any list of the year's best books."--Norman Pearlstine "Fortune " "Hard to put down . . . Red Notice is part John Grisham-like thriller, part business and political memoir."--Andrew Ross Sorkin "New York Times "
