Publisher's Summary

November 2009. Sergei Magnitsky is led to an isolation cell in a Moscow prison and beaten to death by eight police officers. His crime? To testify against the Russian Interior Ministry officials involved in a conspiracy to steal $230 million in taxes. Magnitsky's brutal killing has remained uninvestigated to this day.

Red Notice is a searing exposé of the Russian authorities responsible for the murder, slicing deep into the heart of the Kremlin to uncover its sordid truths.

What the Critics Say

"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)

    "Reads like a crime thriller"

    This book reads as if was a fictional crime novel but it's one of the hardest hitting pieces of non-fiction you'll ever read (listen to). The stories of corruption and personal accounts of those fighting it are so moving it brings tears to the eyes.

    Story
    "Amazement, disbelief and tears"

    This book is one of the most interesting books I have read in a long time, and far more than just a biography. The background information about how the banking system and investment funds work is fascinating, and the insight into the Russian way of 'banking' and politics is eye-opening and downright scary. Disbelief and amazement describe this part of the book. The personal story of the author and his fight for justice for his friend, and his achievements in this fight were what made me cry on several occasions. I am glad that I bought the audible version of the book, as I particularly enjoyed listening to Bill Browder himself reading out the last chapter. It made the whole experience of the book far more personal. All in all I would say this is a must-read for anybody who is interested in our modern world of finance and politics, as it gives an insight to what goes on behind the scenes, and it also shows what one man with determination and perseverance can achieve.

    "Share this story with as many people as you can"

    A genuinely moving true story of how a corrupt regime will go to any length to steal money and undermine judicial systems to cover it up and murder a very brave man who would not be intimidated to change his testimony to suit their purposes.

    "Very well written"

    I never thought I would feel an ounce of compassion for either lawyers or financiers but I was wrong. This is a 'can't put down' listen.
    If only half of it is true then I am afraid it is a shockingly sad indictment of government cruelty.
    Excellent narration by Adam Grupper.

    "A must listen"

    absolutely shocking the level of corruption in 'modern' day Russia. This audiobook details state sponsored theft in alarming detail, naming the individuals responsible for murder, embezzlement and corruption. I hope some day there will justice.

    "Astonishing Story"

    The first half of this book is a journey into the world of investment banking and hedge funds and how Browder turned his hedge fund, Hermitage, into the top performing hedge fund in the world through investing in Russian privatisation, before losing almost all of it through waiting too long to sell when the market collapsed.

    This is interesting enough in itself but then the book changes course entirely and becomes a frightening tale of corruption, revenge and shocking brutality.

    Browder initially comes across as somewhat narcissistic and I am not sure that his account of how he paid suit to his two wives adds much to the story. Nevertheless, he does not hesitate to admit bad business decisions and moments of naivety and becomes more humble as the book progresses.

    Whilst rightfully indignant about, and critical of, Russian business practices and the corruption and vicious behaviour of its government and officials Browder is fully aware that he has courted the misfortunes that befall him and his company and result in the torture and death of colleague(s). Much of the latter half of the book is a frank admission of the guilt he feels about this and his attempts to expiate this by seeking some justice for Magnitsky.

    I found it hard to stop listening to this fascinating and frightening story.

    An incredible story told very well indeed. Bill Browder's journey from rampant capitalist to human rights activist is compelling, at time heart breaking, and illuminating. I've learnt a great deal whilst being entertained and inspired. Thank you.

    Story
    "Great book (with some caveats), subpar narration"

    I really enjoyed this book, and managed to go through it all over 2-3 days because the story is so very captivating, whether it's the life story of the author or the astounding corruption in Russia's judicial system. However, there are still some ridiculous things which I felt were over the top and just placed in the story for dramatic factors that I believe the book could have done without. ***some spoilers ahead *** For example, how on earth would the author have known what Sergey said exactly moments before he was killed? Was it really necessary to place conversations in these instances when the author obviously would have known nothing on what is going on. This combines with the awful narration, which created ludicrously absurb voices for different accents, and really annoying female voice impersonations, were the only thing that detracted the book a bit for me. Still it was highly enjoyable and I recommend it for anyone interested in a well told story.

    [Note: I also found a mistake that I hope gets fixed, 11 mins into chapter 22 it mistakes London for Lebanon, I doubt Hezbollah would be firing any missiles from London!]
