“I don’t know anything about investment banking except what Browder has taught me in Red Notice, yet as a reader I was fully engaged by the book’s monumental presentation of the risks, rewards, and personal and financial dangers of doing business in Russia … An unusually affecting book … What Browder says he intends to do now is to ‘carry on creating a legacy for Sergei [Magnitsky] and pursuing justice for his family.’ A book as resounding as Red Notice may be a step in that direction.” (Christian Science Monitor)
“A tale that makes the dirty dealings of House of Cards look like Snow White.” (The Toronto Star)
“Hard to put down … Red Notice is part John Grisham-like thriller, part business and political memoir.” (Andrew Ross Sorkin, The New York Times)
“Reads like a classic thriller, with an everyman hero alone and in danger in a hostile foreign city … but it’s all true.” (Lee Child, bestselling author of the Jack Reacher series)
“In Red Notice, Bill Browder tells the harrowing and inspiring story of how his fight for justice in Russia made him an unlikely international human rights leader and Vladimir Putin’s number-one enemy. It is the book for anyone interested in understanding the culture of corruption and impunity in Putin’s Russia today, and Browder’s heroic example of how to fight back.” (Senator John McCain )
“This indispensable look at the brutal realities of the Putin regime is of even greater relevance, thanks to Bill Browder’s unique expertise and personal experience inside the belly of the beast.” (Garry Kasparov, Chess Grandmaster and author of How Life Imitates Chess)
