I picked this up looking for something light after a few meaty non-fiction books. It’s a suspenseful account of Browder’s fight against the Russian oligarchy, a really shocking exposé on the lengths rich politicians will go to in order to make and keep money. There were two things that kept me from really enjoying it, though:
- Browder consistently describes the men in his story by their intelligence and cunning, and describes the women in their story by their appearance.
- All the negative consequences of Browder’s investments in Russia, especially the death of his friend, were the result of his own opportunism and greed.
