I just finished reading this book. The author is the grandson of one-time American communist leader Earl Browder. Bill Browder, on the other hand , became an ardent capitalist and made a fortune investing in post-Soviet Russia.
But when his activities exposed high-level corruption, he and his colleagues became targets of the oligarchs who control Russia. After his lawyer, Sergei Magnitsky, was imprisoned, tortured, and murdered, Bill Browder started a relentless campaign for human rights.
This is a chilling story of life in a nation where the rule of law simply does not exist insofar as the rulers are concerned. Very highly recommended.
