Red Notice: A True Story of High Finance, Murder, and One Man’s Fight for Justice
New York Times bestseller

THE BOOK THAT EXPLAINS WHY RUSSIANS WANTED TO MEET WITH THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN

“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.

Alerta Vermelho. Como Me Tornei o Inimigo Número Um de Putin (Em Portuguese do Brasil)

Bill Browder iniciou sua vida adulta como um rebelde de Wall Street cujos instintos o levaram para a Rússia logo após a queda da União Soviética. E foi ali que ele fez fortuna.

Esta é a trajetória de um ativista por acidente.

Ao longo do caminho, ele expôs casos chocantes de corrupção no país e por muito pouco não consegue escapar com vida. Seu advogado russo, Sergei Magnitsky, não teve tanta sorte assim: terminou na cadeia, onde foi torturado até a morte. Aquilo mudaria para sempre a vida de Bill Browder. Depois de entrar em contato com cerne assassino do regime de Vladimir Putin, ele passou os últimos anos em uma luta incansável para expor o que viu. Por causa disso, veio a se tornar o inimigo número um de Putin, principalmente depois de contribuir para a criação de uma lei nos Estados Unidos que puniria os russos envolvidos na morte de Sergei. A famosa retaliação de Putin abriu os olhos do mundo: o líder do Kremlin criou uma lei que proíbe americanos de adotar crianças russas.

Ao mesmo tempo uma aventura no mundo financeiro, um thriller criminal e uma cruzada com casos de polícia, "Alerta vermelho'' é a história de um homem que foi contra todas as probabilidades em busca de mudar o mundo. E foi a partir daí que encontrou, mesmo sem esperar, um sentido para a sua vida.

Alerta Vermelho (Portuguese Edition)
Alerta Vermelho é uma história real e impressionante que revela o lado mais atroz do regime de Vladimir Putin. Fraude, corrupção, chantagem, perseguição, extorsão e tortura são termos que surgem recorrentemente neste livro corajoso, explosivo e revelador, que denuncia os segredos mais obscuros do poder russo. Bill Browder, CEO da Hermitage Capital, uma das empresas de fundos de investimento mais bem-sucedidas do mundo, foi o maior investidor estrangeiro na Rússia até 2005, altura em que foi subitamente proibido de entrar no país. Em novembro de 2009, Sergei Magnitsky, o advogado que representava Browder no processo contra o governo russo, foi isolado numa cela gelada de uma prisão de Moscovo, algemado e espancado até à morte por oito agentes policiais. O seu crime? Ter testemunhado contra os funcionários do Ministério da Administração Interna da Rússia, envolvidos no roubo de 230 milhões de dólares pagos em impostos pela Hermitage. Apesar de todas as provas e factos apresentados contra as autoridades russas, até agora o caso não foi investigado e os responsáveis por esta morte brutal continuam impunes. Inconformado, Bill Browder denuncia e expõe em Alerta Vermelho o retrato de um governo russo criminoso e sem escrúpulos, e as estreitas ligações de Vladimir Putin com as oligarquias corruptas.
