Head, Global Magnitsky Justice Campaign

Freezing Order
  • ‘I was hooked from the first paragraph. More explosive, compulsive and gasp-inducingly, spine-tingingly, mouth-dryingly, heart-poundingly thrilling than any fiction I have read for years, Freezing Order has a stunning plot – international conspiracy, malign and hidden rings of power and corruption, a dark threat to any hope of world order – but with this stunning twist: it is all true… Browder – with incredible courage, resilience and grace, and always at great risk to his personal safety and freedom – continues to chase after Putin and his henchmen… This is real heroism, and what a cracking good read it makes for.’
    – Stephen Fry

  • ‘Absolutely gripping. Bill Browder’s new book on the Magnitsky affair follows the money all the way to the top of Russia’s murderous kleptocracy. Freezing Order ought to be compulsory reading. Luckily it reads like a thriller.’
    – Tom Stoppard

  • ‘Freezing Order is a gripping tale of assassinations, legal battles and billions in cash. It would be entertaining fiction, but as a true story it’s a warning and a roadmap for fighting back against the waves of crime and corruption emanating from Putin’s Russia and other dictatorships. Bill Browder has shown that one man with courage can make a difference, and that even the most powerful regimes have weak spots. It’s an inspiring message we should all heed, and with urgency.’
    – Garry Kasparov

  • Mind-blowing. Bill Browder takes us down the rabbit hole of Kremlin lawfare where down is up and wrong is right, and powerful Russian interests are trying to upend our legal and political systems. This personal account of Browder’s battle for justice is at times terrifying, at times deeply touching – and leads inexorably to a vast money-laundering scheme the Kremlin will seemingly stop at nothing to cover up.’
    – Catherine Belton

  • ‘Bill Browder’s thrilling new book digs deeper into the kleptocratic world enabled and supported by the Russian state, for the benefit of the most powerful and well-connected crooks in Russia and beyond. This exploration of the dark heart of corruption asks the question of what one person can do in the face of such insidious corruption, and makes us ask what we can find in ourselves to stand up and resist those forces that would steal, decieve and murder for their own gain.’
    – Eliot Higgins, founder of Bellingcat

  • ‘Browder’s account of how he stood up to Putin in the face of danger, arrest warrants, and bullying is mandatory reading for anyone who wants to understand the tactics of modern autocracy.’
    – Anne Applebaum

Bill Browder — hedge-fund manager, “five-foot-nine”, “middle-aged”, “bald” and bespectacled — is not an obvious leading man. Yet his latest book, Freezing Order, is a Hollywood popcorn thriller disguised as a memoir.
