PAGING THROUGH HISTORY

Red Notice: A True Story of High Finance, Murder, and One Man's Fight for Justice

by Bill Browder

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. What happened during the next four years transformed his life.  He embarked on an unrelenting quest for justice, exposing the cover-up that leads right up to Putin. A financial caper, a crime thriller, and a political crusade, this is the story of one man taking on overpowering odds to change the world.

"First published in 2014, the importance of Bill Browder’s Red Notice has increased dramatically in light of Russia’s interference in America’s 2016 election and beyond. As citizens, now is the time to fight corruption at home and abroad and strengthen our democratic institutions from those who wish to harm them."  -- Kevin
