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
  • "The story of Sergei Magnitsky's life and death is a shocking true-life thriller, and Bill Browder was the man to write it."

    Tom Stoppard
  • "A sizzling account of Mr Browder's rise, fall and metamorphosis from bombastic financier to renowned human-rights activist ... Reads more like a financial thriller than a real-life story."

    The Economist
  • "An unburdening, a witness statement and a thriller all at the same time ... Electrifying ... One heck of a read."

    The Times
  • "An expose of years of state-sponsored torture and murder ... this story of courage combined with a dash of obsessiveness is about the real here and now."

    The Independent
  • "The cut and thrust, and the high stakes, make for a zesty tale."

    New York Times
  • "Browder's narrative lays out in vivid detail the often murky mechanisms of Russia's kleptocratic economy, culminating in an engrossing account of what would surely be the heist of a century were it not so representative of business as usual. It's also a chilling, sinister portrait of a society in which the rule of law has been destroyed by those sworn to enforce it. The result is an alternatively harrowing and inspiring saga of appalling crime and undeserved punishment in the Wild East."

    Publishers Weekly
  • "A fascinating and unexpected story - including the fact that my work played Cupid."

    Mitch Albom, author of 'Tuesdays With Morrie'
  • "An impassioned personal broadside against the Kremlin ... [a] fitting tribute to a lawyer who was angered by the criminality he saw around him and was determined to do something about it."

    Financial Times
  • "Fast-paced"

    The Sunday Times
