Great book, especially the audio version!
An unbelievable story of how Bill Browder, an American/British investment banker, who established his own investment fund in Russia in the 90s got caught in a web of typical high level Russian corruption, fraud and theft.
He pulled out of Russia when he realized what was going on and started to expose the machinations of mid level and high level officials in police and government stealing from their own coffers.
His lawyer refused to leave Russia and was subsequently murdered. Bill fought for years to expose the fraud to the world and get some justice for his lawyer.
The really interesting point is that Krystia Freeland (MP) was a journalist with Reuters and she was one of the first to write a major expose on the corruption and fraud perpetrated on Bill and related to his companies.
It has made me realize that everything I ever thought about Russia is absolutely true and Putin and his henchmen are just thugs. It is a rogue regime that does not deserve any respect in the world.

This book makes you realize that in Russia, there is no rule of law when it comes to money. The powers that be are just as brutal and ruthless as the Mafia, but unlike the Mafia, they have the Russian government backing them up.
