New York Times bestseller


“Part John Grisham-like thriller, part business and political memoir.” —The New York Times

“[Red Notice] does for investing in Russia and the former Soviet Union what Liar’s Poker did for our understanding of Salomon Brothers, Wall Street, and the mortgage-backed securities business in the 1980s. Browder’s business saga meshes well with the story of corruption and murder in Vladimir Putin’s Russia, making Red Notice an early candidate for any list of the year’s best books” (Fortune).

This is a story about an accidental activist. Bill Browder started out his adult life as the Wall Street maverick whose instincts led him to Russia just after the breakup of the Soviet Union, where he made his fortune.

Along the way he exposed corruption, and when he did, he barely escaped with his life. His Russian lawyer Sergei Magnitsky wasn’t so lucky: he ended up in jail, where he was tortured to death. That changed Browder forever. He saw the murderous heart of the Putin regime and has spent the last half decade on a campaign to expose it. Because of that, he became Putin’s number one enemy, especially after Browder succeeded in having a law passed in the United States—The Magnitsky Act—that punishes a list of Russians implicated in the lawyer’s murder. Putin famously retaliated with a law that bans Americans from adopting Russian orphans.

A financial caper, a crime thriller, and a political crusade, Red Notice is the story of one man taking on overpowering odds to change the world, and also the story of how, without intending to, he found meaning in his life.

 Ноябрь 2009 года. В одиночной, промозглой камере московского изолятора, было обнаружено истерзанное побоями восьми охранников, бездыханное тело, тяжело больного юриста - Сергея Магнитского. В чем было его преступление? - Разоблачение коррумпированных должностных лиц МВД, причастных к хищению из российского бюджета 230 миллионов долларов налогов, уплаченных ранее одним из самых успешных в мире инвестиционных фондов. И по сей день виновные в этом жестоком убийстве остаются безнаказанными. Последующий постыдный посмертный судебный процесс над юристом воспринят международным сообществом как акт средневекового мракобесия путинского режима. 
Красный циркуляр – книга разоблачение масштабного сокрытия правды и следов совершенных преступлений российской властью в отношении Сергея Магнитского – его незаконный арест и убийство - проникает глубоко в Кремль, вскрывая неприглядную правду о режиме. Билл Браудер – инвестиционный управляющий и клиент Магнитского – погружает нас в головокружительный мир финансов Нью-Йорка и Лондона 90-х годов, его схватку с российскими олигархами в постсоветской Москве и последующее выдворение из России по указанию Путина (Кремля). 

Автору удается на фактах показать сращивание российской власти с криминалом, где грани настолько размыты, что уже невозможно отличить одного от другого. Под влиянием произошедшего мы наблюдает трансформацию человека (автора) из финансиста в правозащитника, ведущего кампанию за установление справедливости в отношении своего покойного адвоката и друга. Красный циркуляр – нещадно оголяет то, от чего страдает сегодняшняя Россия - взяточничество, коррупция, мошенничество, пытки и убийство каждого, кто оказался на пути развратной власти. Книга шокирует нас откровениями о политических механизмах работы в высших эшелонах власти на Западе.

Philip Carlo's The Ice Man spent over six weeks on the New York Times Bestseller List. Top Mob Hitman. Devoted Family Man. Doting Father. For thirty years, Richard "The Iceman" Kuklinski led a shocking double life, becoming the most notorious professional assassin in American history while happily hosting neighborhood barbecues in suburban New Jersey.

Richard Kuklinski was Sammy the Bull Gravano's partner in the killing of Paul Castellano, then head of the Gambino crime family, at Sparks Steakhouse. Mob boss John Gotti hired him to torture and kill the neighbor who accidentally ran over his child. For an additional price, Kuklinski would make his victims suffer; he conducted this sadistic business with coldhearted intensity and shocking efficiency, never disappointing his customers. By his own estimate, he killed over two hundred men, taking enormous pride in his variety and ferocity of technique.

This trail of murder lasted over thirty years and took Kuklinski all over America and to the far corners of the earth, Brazil, Africa, and Europe. Along the way, he married, had three children, and put them through Catholic school. His daughter's medical condition meant regular stays in children's hospitals, where Kuklinski was remembered, not as a gangster, but as an affectionate father, extremely kind to children. Each Christmas found the Kuklinski home festooned in colorful lights; each summer was a succession of block parties.

His family never suspected a thing.

Richard Kuklinski is now the subject of the major motion picture titled "The Iceman"(2013), starring James Franco, Winona Ryder, Ray Liotta, and Chris Evans.
