Bill Browder is a gutsy guy. And that is putting it mildly.
This book is the extension of his middle finger to Russian Czar Vlad Putin and his oligarch buddies.
Browder, you see, built up a highly successful fund based on Russian transactions, and then got crosswise with the guys who wanted his money as well as everyone else's.
"Red Notice" is the story of Browder's unlikely rise as a financial whiz kid, and then his spectacular and harrowing, nail-biting, even, fall when Putin decided to get him.
Browder bares his knuckles here, and the reader finishes this book worrying that he will wind up dead before long.
After all, that's what happens to people who get on Putin's list.
