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.

Critic Reviews

"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)

True picture of machinations of post-Soviet Russia and its government

Bill Browder's story of the financial situation in post-Soviet Russia is well told with excellent imagery of the situation faced by the Russian people and those who sought to take advantage of the gold rush to be had. The details provided about how the government sanctioned the illicit activities of the police and federal law enforcement were astounding. The sad truth about the consequences that were personally experienced by Sergei Magnitsky was both shocking and heart wrenching. This book is a must read for anyone interested in Russia, Russian history, or in knowing the true situation of life in Putin's Russia.

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.

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.

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.

Red Notice - essential reading for everyone

Extraordinary true story of corruption, politics and the Russian psyche,
All the more horrifying as it describes events that are so recent.
So sad to see an amazing country robbed and manipulated by so many villains and the corruption going all the way from the police and prison officials to the tax office and all the way to the top.
