Once Upon A Time in Russia
The Rise of the Oligarchs--a True Story of Ambition, Wealth, Betrayal, and MurderLarge Print - 2015
Once Upon a Time in Russia is the untold true story of the larger-than-life billionaire oligarchs who surfed the waves of privatization to reap riches after the fall of the Soviet regime: "Godfather of the Kremlin" Boris Berezovsky, a former mathematician whose first entrepreneurial venture was running an automobile reselling business, and Roman Abramovich, his dashing young protégé who built a multi-billion-dollar empire of oil and aluminum. Written with the heart-stopping pacing of a thriller -- but even more compelling because it is true -- this story of amassing obscene wealth and power depicts a rarefied world seldom seen up close.
