Ivan and I took the 3:00 p.m. Eurostar back to London. We needed to talk out of
earshot, and the only place available was between cars, where we sat
uncomfortably on fold-down jump seats. Northern France churned by just
outside the door, a blur of green and gray. We tried to call Moscow and London,
but the connection kept dropping out as the train zipped in and out of tunnels, so
we gave up and went back to our seats, where we sat in silence for the rest of the
journey. Although I’d known Russia was a violent place, since the day that I’d
set foot on Russian soil in 1992 it had never touched me, or anyone close to me.
Now, all of a sudden, it was all too real.

My first concern was Maxim. As soon as I got home, I called Jamie and asked
for an update. After Maxim had been beaten, the police had arrested and fined
him, even before he was taken to the hospital. Thankfully, his injuries were not
life-threatening. I implored Jamie to file a complaint, but he resisted. “Maxim’s
scared, Bill. The officers who beat him said that they’d accuse him of pulling a
knife on them, rearrest him, and put him in jail if he says anything.”

How could I argue with that? At least he was going to be all right.
I arrived at the office early the next morning. Ivan was already there,

inspecting a handwritten copy of the search warrant that Emma had faxed over.
Her handwriting was obsessively clear and still had the bubbly letters of a
schoolgirl’s, but the content of the warrant was anything but innocent. It said that
the tax crimes department of the Moscow Interior Ministry had opened a
criminal case against Ivan, accusing him of underpaying $44 million in dividend
withholding taxes for Kameya. They came up with an arbitrary tax claim for the
company, and because Ivan administered the entity for our client, the police
blamed Ivan.

No matter how illegitimate the Russian criminal justice system may seem
from the outside, Russia is still a sovereign state that most Western governments
