About the best book I have ever read
1 January 2019
As a retired commercial lawyer I really enjoyed the first part of this book with its story of tenacity, intellect and daring by Bill Browder’s decision to invest in the wildcat Russian market after the fall of the USSR. However it was the second half which is a truely amazing and heart warming story of one man’s determination to get seek retribution for his friends untimely end at the hands of legalised thugs in Moscow’s backed all the way to the top, namely Putin himself.
With Trump’s simpering support of Putin the story is in essence still ongoing with the author rating a mention by Putin and the last joint press meeting held with Trump in which Putin said he would consider handing over some of the Russians charged by the Mueller enquiry if the USA would hand Browder to Russia. Given his seeming inability to read anything which doesn’t have pictures and large print it is doubtful that Trump ever knew what Putin was on about, but this is unlikely to be the end of this saga.
I would heartily recommend this book which, although about a complex and possibly dry subject, is beautifully written in a way in which the dry parts fit into an amazing human tale.
