Audio Book 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.

    Absolutely amazing story. If you are not working in investment banking, the author tells a story of pros and cons of working in that field, and the hardships that potentially come along with this field of work. Even better, the author writes a story through his and others' experiences about the corruption in Russia, pre and post Soviet era. This book is both an educational, and an emotion evoking story. The narrator was great, utilizing different voices and accents to differentiate the characters. And you get a final narration from the author himself for the final chapter. I finished this audiobook within a few days. At some point, I'll listen to it again.

    When I purchased this book ... didn’t know a thing about the author or the subject matter ... got intrigued by the title ... that’s all ... then after a few minutes of the narration I realized that I was in for a ride ... but even then didn’t hit me that I would learn so much about this particular instance in world and political history ... most of the atrocities that happen on a daily basis go unreported or unnoticed ... so I’m so glad I got this insight ... I hope someone makes a motion picture out of this book !!!
