Red Notice by Bill Browder
Financial wunderkind battles corruption in Putin’s Russia. Superfluous autobiographical details.
Update: A December 2016 poll shows 39% of Americans admire Putin. This is ignorance of the highest order and a clear argument for the importance of books. Without books, people are condemned to believe what any amoral despotic would-be autocrat tells them, even believing that his partner in crime, a blood-stained tyrant, deserves their approval.
