Publisher's Summary

November 2009. An emaciated young lawyer, Sergei Magnitsky, is led to a freezing isolation cell in a Moscow prison, handcuffed to a bed rail, and beaten to death by eight police officers. His crime? To testify against the Russian Interior Ministry officials who were involved in a conspiracy to steal $230 million of taxes paid to the state by one of the world's most successful hedge funds. Magnitsky's brutal killing has remained uninvestigated and unpunished to this day. His farcical posthumous show-trial brought Putin's regime to a new low in the eyes of the international community.
Red Notice is a searing expose of the wholesale whitewash by Russian authorities of Magnitsky's imprisonment and murder, slicing deep into the shadowy heart of the Kremlin to uncover its sordid truths. Bill Browder - the hedge fund manager who employed Magnitsky - takes us on his explosive journey from the heady world of finance in New York and London in the 1990s, through his battles with ruthless oligarchs in the turbulent landscape of post-Soviet Union Moscow, to his expulsion from Russia on Putin's orders. Browder's graphic portrait of the Russian government as a criminal enterprise wielding all the power of a sovereign state illuminates his personal transformation from financier to human rights activist, campaigning for justice for his late lawyer and friend.
With fraud, bribery, corruption, and torture exposed at every turn, Red Notice is a shocking but true political roller-coaster that plays out in the highest echelons of Western power.

This is an absolute "YES" as your next read/listen

What made the experience of listening to Red Notice the most enjoyable?

I average an audio book per week but stayed up all night listening to this wonderful true story (I'm very glad it was a Friday night!). This story is an absolute must to anyone interested in great story telling, finance and the intrigue/corruption of the Russian government. The ending of the book is especially powerful and truly shows why human rights must come before money.

What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

In my case, I was fascinated by the honest reporting of an attempt by an American citizen to undertake a mission of change with our own Washington bureaucracy, and surprisingly, how well some of our politician’s did in addressing a serious human rights violation.

Even more so, this book explains in clear prose the importance of doing what is right regardless of personal cost. There is a profound human rights example, which this book will bring to light, showing why sanctions and in some case, extreme measures must be taken against some governments to protect their citizen's rights.

What does Adam Grupper bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Great Narration with excellent foreign dialog characterizations - very immersive.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Strong emotional components told with an honesty you don't find in many stories.

Any additional comments?

Well done

Evil meets humanity at it's best.

This true story will keep emotions up and down. Every time you hear a glimpse of hope and a good news only to have your hopes dashed by a Russian oligarch. This book is amazingly well written and speaks true of Russia then and now. Bill Browder is a true champion for justice. What he accomplished for Sergei Magnitsky's family and justice loving people around the globe is by far nothing short of miracle. To Sergei Magnitsky's family, your son, father and husband did not die in vain thanks to Sergei himself and his friend Bill Browder. To Sergei, may you rest in peace.

This book met way above my expectation.

The narrator is very good and I love the Russian accent.

it's the people not the system, be aware!

this is an excellent book that makes one think about nature and nurture. the political environment both domestically and internationally. The systems be it democratic or communist. The economics be it command or market basses. Why there needs to be independence between arms of government and a judiciary that is not subject to fear and favour. Why like Australia the need for a nation Independent Commission Against Corruption.
