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

    Browder’s story is somewhat folklore in the finance community so when his book was released I was pretty quick to purchase myself a copy. Well written and quite gripping, I had no idea the Russian establishment so blatantly violated civil rights so long after the country (supposedly) became democratic. The fortune Browder amassed via his investing in Russia quite impressive, but the story behind his rise and fall is even more enthralling. Amazing to read how close he came to spending his life behind bars, the first chapter of the book will have you hooked!

    All was going well until a mini Diego Maradona stole the ball from her: instant tears and she wouldn’t go back on the field! The first 20 minutes were a lot of fun to watch, though.

    A little too close for comfort this one. 20 feet from the back deck! 11 engines, two air tankers and a helicopter to put it out!
