Description

A real-life political thriller about an American financier in the Wild East of Russia, the murder of his principled young tax attorney, and his dangerous mission to expose the Kremlin’s corruption.

Bill Browder’s journey started on the South Side of Chicago and moved through Stanford Business School to the dog-eat-dog world of hedge fund investing in the 1990s. It continued in Moscow, where Browder made his fortune heading the largest investment fund in Russia after the Soviet Union’s collapse. But when he exposed the corrupt oligarchs who were robbing the companies in which he was investing, Vladimir Putin turned on him and, in 2005, had him expelled from Russia.

In 2007, a group of law enforcement officers raided Browder’s offices in Moscow and stole $230 million of taxes that his fund’s companies had paid to the Russian government. Browder’s attorney Sergei Magnitsky investigated the incident and uncovered a sprawling criminal enterprise. A month after Sergei testified against the officials involved, he was arrested and thrown into pre-trial detention, where he was tortured for a year. On November 16, 2009, he was led to an isolation chamber, handcuffed to a bedrail, and beaten to death by eight guards in full riot gear.

Browder glimpsed the heart of darkness, and it transformed his life: he embarked on an unrelenting quest for justice in Sergei’s name, exposing the towering cover-up that leads right up to Putin. 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.

    This book just enlightens all societies that corruption, power and greed trumps integrity truth and justice pretty much every time and hardly any government will step in to help. It is rarely about human rights; it is all about strategy. Will exposing the truth or covering up be more beneficial economically, politically and for what side? Countries like England, United States and Canada did not act quickly enough to save this Russian tax lawyer or others because they have plenty of examples of the abuse of power in their own backyards. Injustice is everywhere and if you become a target, you are fighting a very uneven battle. This book shows the reality of how governments operate and the dehumanizing side of what it actually cost to obtain any form of validation and the price is extremely high. It takes years. Considering how well known this investor was with all his connections and what he went through, you can't help but think of an unknown person's chances of success under the same circumstances. I am an unknown person and I am deeply fearful. The odds are greatly stacked against us.

    This incredible tale of what happened to hedge fund manager Bill Browder during the last decade had me on the edge of my seat. It clearly outlines what happens if you "poke the bear" a.k.a. Russia, and how utterly ruthless, immoral and scandalous top officials in the political sphere and the justice system there can be. Mr. Browder has produced a gem with Red Notice, and in its wake brought the quest for human rights violations to be quelled, maybe even light years ahead. There is obviously much work to be done, but this book certainly has opened a lot of people's eyes. I know it has opened mine. I recommend this book 100%-it was very hard to put down.
