Can one man take on a ruthless global leader – and win? Financier Bill Browder was the largest foreign investor in Russia, but the Moscow jail murder of his lawyer after uncovering a $230 million fraud by government officials sparked a fight for justice that has made him number one both in the New York Times charts and Vladimir Putin’s enemy list.

He follows Red Notice with Freezing Order: A True Story of Money Laundering, Murder and Surviving Vladimir Putin’s Wrath, an extraordinary insight into the exposing of corruption that prompted Russia’s intervention in the 2016 US presidential election. In conversation with Daniel Ross.
