Freezing Order: A True Story of Money Laundering, Murder, and Surviving Vladimir Putin's Wrath

Freezing Order: A True Story of Money Laundering, Murder, and Surviving Vladimir Putin's Wrath


Book Overview: Freezing Order: A True Story of Money Laundering, Murder, and Surviving Vladimir Putin's Wrath

Following his explosive New York Times bestseller Red Notice, Bill Browder returns with another gripping thriller chronicling how he became Vladimir Putin's number one enemy by exposing Putin's campaign to steal and launder hundreds of billions of dollars and kill anyone who stands in his way.

When Bill Browder's young Russian lawyer, Sergei Magnitsky, was beaten to death in a Moscow jail, Browder made it his life's mission to go after his killers and make sure they faced justice. The first step of that mission was to uncover who was behind the $230 million tax refund scheme that Magnitsky was killed over. As Browder and his team tracked the money as it flowed out of Russia through the Baltics and Cyprus and on to Western Europe and the Americas, they were shocked to discover that Vladimir Putin himself was a beneficiary of the crime.

As law enforcement agencies began freezing the money, Putin retaliated. He and his cronies set up honey traps, hired process servers to chase Browder through cities, murdered more of his Russian allies, and enlisted some of the top lawyers and politicians in America to bring him down. Putin will stop at nothing to protect his money. As Freezing Order reveals, it was Browder's campaign to expose Putin's corruption that prompted Russia's intervention in the 2016 US presidential election.

At once a financial caper, an international adventure, and a passionate plea for justice , Freezing Order is a stirring morality tale about how one man can take on one of the most ruthless villains in the world--and win.

Bill Browder is a distinguished financier and notorious human rights activist known worldwide for his influential work in the realm of Global Finance. Born on April 23, 1964, in Princeton, New Jersey, Browder is perhaps best known as the CEO and co-founder of Hermitage Capital Management, a leading investment advisory firm specializing in the Russian market. Constantly at the intersection of finance and political activism, his life journey not only demonstrates resilience and perseverance but also his relentless commitment to justice. In his early professional life, Browder worked at reputable financial institutions, such as Boston Consulting Group and Salomon Brothers. However, it was during the post-Soviet Union privatization period that his finance prowess truly flourished, leading Hermitage to become one of the largest foreign investors in Russia. His financial aptitude, blended with a deep understanding of international economies and their interplay, solidified his reputation as a formidable financier. Yet, Browder's life took a significant turn following a fall out with Russian authorities, leading to his expulsion from the country. His crusade for justice after the tragic death of his attorney, Sergei Magnitsky, is highly regarded globally. He spearheaded the Magnitsky Act, imposing sanctions on human rights violators in Russia, that was enacted by the U.S Congress. Browder has dedicated his life to human rights advocacy with the same passion he formerly directed toward the finance industry, transforming personal adversity into a global fight for justice. His memoir, "Red Notice: A True Story of High Finance, Murder, and One Man’s Fight for Justice," encapsulates this journey perfectly and remains a worldwide best-seller. His resilience, passion, and dedication make him an influential voice in both finance and human rights advocacy.
