December 2016. The author and former Moscow bureau chief, quietly meets former MI6 officer Christopher Steele in a London pub to discuss President-elect Donald Trump's Russia connections. A month later, Steele's now-famous dossier sparks what may be the biggest scandal of the modern era. The names of the Americans involved are well-known--Paul Manafort, Michael Flynn, Jared Kushner, George Papadopoulos, Carter Page--but here the author also shines a light on powerful Russian figures like Aras Agalarov, Natalia Veselnitskaya, and Sergey Kislyak, whose motivations and instructions may have been coming from the highest echelons of the Kremlin. Drawing on new material and his expert understanding of Moscow and its players, the author takes the reader through every bizarre and disquieting detail of the 'Trump-Russia' story--an event so huge it involves international espionage, off-shore banks, sketchy real estate deals, the Miss Universe pageant, mobsters, money laundering, poisoned dissidents, computer hacking, and the most shocking election in American history.

While the author, a journalist with extensive experience reporting from Russia, admits that the collusion he alleges is "in certain key respects unprovable," he also finds startling connections between computer hacking, money laundering, poisoned dissidents, and the Miss Universe pageant. Written in December, this book has already been overtaken by current events. It remains, however, a fascinating exposé.

Riveting, the opposite of fake news.

Absolute piece of garbage! The absolute definition of fake news! Don't waste your time with this poor excuse for a book! Should have been listed in the fiction section!
