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

In 2005, Browder, an investment manager, had made a fortune investing in post-Soviet Russia. The author describes in a breezy style how he antagonized Russian oligarchs who attempted to thwart his company's investments. He then ran afoul of the Russian government when his tax attorney, Sergei Magnitsky, uncovered tax fraud committed by Russian officials. Browder claims that the government then arrested Magnitsky and murdered him. Through Browder's efforts, the United States enacted the Magnitsky Act in 2012, which imposed visa and banking restrictions on Russian officials implicated in human rights abuses.

The two young intelligence officers, trained in their respective spy schools, collide in a charged atmosphere of tradecraft, deception and, inevitably, a forbidden spiral of carnal attraction that threatens their careers and the security of America's valuable mole in Moscow.
