Description

I have to assume that there is a very real chance that Putin or members of his regime will have me killed some day. If I’m killed, you will know who did it. When my enemies read this book, they will know that you know.

Reads like a classic thriller, with an everyman hero alone and in danger in a hostile foreign city … but it’s all true, and it’s a story that needs to be told.
LEE CHILD

An unburdening, a witness statement and a thriller all at the same time … electrifying.
THE TIMES

A shocking true-life thriller.
TOM STOPPARD

In November 2009, the young lawyer Sergei Magnitsky was beaten to death by eight police officers in a freezing cell in a Moscow prison. His crime? Testifying against Russian officials who were involved in a conspiracy to steal $230 million of taxes.

Red Notice is a searing exposé of the whitewash of this imprisonment and murder. The killing hasn’t been investigated. It hasn’t been punished. Bill Browder is still campaigning for justice for his late lawyer and friend. This is his explosive journey from the heady world of finance in New York and London in the 1990s, through battles with ruthless oligarchs in turbulent post-Soviet Union Moscow, to the shadowy heart of the Kremlin.

With fraud, bribery, corruption and torture exposed at every turn, Red Notice is a shocking political roller-coaster.

Reviews

  • More compelling and terrifying than a spy novel

    A brilliantly written book, this is a true account of Bill Browder's experiences in Russia and the circumstances surrounding the death of Sergei Magnitsky, which formed the backdrop of the Magnitsky Act, which has gained new relevance in the age of Trump. It's compulsory reading for those reasons, but also because it's simply great storytelling. As well as everything else, Browder is a terrific storyteller, making this a true page turner.
