Russia expert Luke Harding lays out the most in-depth look to date at the Trump campaign's dealings with Russia. Beginning with a meeting with Christopher Steele, the man behind the shattering dossier that first brought the allegations to light, Harding probes the histories of key Russian and American players with striking clarity and insight. Harding exposes the disquieting details of the Trump-Russia story - a saga so huge it involves international espionage, offshore banks, sketchy real estate deals, mobsters, money laundering, disappeared dissidents, and more.

Would you try another book from Ali Novak and/or Reba Buhr?

This book was weak compared to the author's other. But the Narrator really killed it. Painstakingly slow and overacted. Each sentence from the main character ending in a question. Very hard to listen to.
