Publisher's Summary

A gripping exposé about the biggest political scandal of the modern era.

Moscow, July 1987. Real-estate tycoon Donald Trump visits Soviet Russia for the first time at the invitation of the government.

London, December 2016. Luke Harding meets former MI6 officer Christopher Steele to discuss the president-elect's connections with Russia. Harding follows two leads: money and sex.

Washington, January 2017. Steele's explosive dossier alleges that the Kremlin has been 'cultivating, supporting, and assisting' Trump for years and that they have compromising information about him. Trump responds on twitter, 'FAKE NEWS.'

In Collusion, award-winning journalist Luke Harding reveals the true nature of Trump's decades-long relationship with Russia and presents the gripping inside story of the dossier. It features exclusive new material and draws on sources from the intelligence community.

Harding tells an astonishing story of offshore money, sketchy real-estate deals, a Miss Universe Pageant, mobsters, money laundering, hacking and Kremlin espionage. He shines a light on powerful Russian players like Aras Agalarov, Natalia Veselnitskaya and Sergey Kislyak, whose motivations and instructions may have come from Vladimir Putin himself.

The special prosecutor, Robert Mueller, has already indicted several of the American protagonists, including Trump's campaign manager, Paul Manafort. More charges are likely as the crisis engulfs Trump's administration. This audiobook gets to the heart of the biggest political scandal of the modern era. Russia is reshaping the world order to its advantage - this is something that should trouble us all.

Gripped!

Absolutely excellent. Mr Harding has pulled together a phenomenal amount of material from a wide range of sources, and made it into a coherent narrative. A must-read for anyone interested in the current worrying confusion and disintegration of American and global politics. Highly recommended.

Fascinating listen. Strongly recommend.

If you're interested in US politics and particularly what's happened with the current administration and Russia, you'll be captivated with this book. This is an excellent example of good journalism and Luke Harding is on top form.

Essential reading - thrilling, gripping, terrifying.

This book is in-depth and enlightening. It reads like a terrific thriller, only it is not a work of fiction.

The author slowly builds up an incredibly strong case for collusion and one that goes back over more than three decades. If this were a movie plot it might feel too fanciful be true, but the evidence presented by Harding is both detailed, compelling and damning.

Interestingly this book was written in secrecy and released somewhat unexpectedly. The book provides an insider's perspective - which is fascinating.

I very much enjoyed reading it and finished it over the course of a couple of evenings. This book is completely up to date as of November 2017 and I very much look forward to the follow up a couple of years from now, detailing the next steps in this ongoing and as yet unresolved political saga.

It will almost certainly leave you gobsmacked but comes highly recommended. I would hope that everyone with an interest in the Trump/Russia situation would have an opportunity to read this.

A Brilliant and timely piece of journalism. A must read that gives an insight into not only what has happened in the US but what I'd probably taking place within the EU too.
