Waterstones Says

The profoundly shocking story of the murder of lawyer Sergei Magnitsky in Russian police custody fuels this powerful, page-turning investigation into the lengths Putin will go to silence critics and exert total state control.

'An unburdening, a witness statement and a thriller all at the same time ... electrifying.' The Times

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.



A Sunday Times and New York Times bestseller. A true-life thriller by one of Putin's Most Wanted.

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 expose 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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"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 "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 "A sizzling account of Mr Browder's rise, fall and metamorphosis from bombastic financier to renowned human-rights activist ... Reads more like a financial thriller than a real-life story." The Economist "An unburdening, a witness statement and a thriller all at the same time ... Electrifying ... One heck of a read." -- Giles Whittell The Times "An expose of years of state-sponsored torture and murder ... this story of courage combined with a dash of obsessiveness is about the real here and now." -- Sonia Purnell The Independent
