#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER I ve read kind of all the books on this subject . . . and this is the one you want to read. Rachel Maddow Before Ukraine, before impeachment: This is the never-before-told inside story of the high-stakes, four-year-long investigation into Donald Trump s Russia ties culminating in the Steele dossier, and sparking the Mueller report from the founders of political opposition research company Fusion GPS.Fusion GPS was founded in 2010 by Glenn Simpson and Peter Fritsch, two former reporters at The Wall Street Journal who decided to abandon the struggling news business and use their reporting skills to conduct open-source investigations for businesses and law firms and opposition research for political candidates. In the fall of 2015, they were hired to look into the finances of Donald Trump.What began as a march through a mind-boggling trove of lawsuits, bankruptcies, and sketchy overseas projects soon took a darker turn: The deeper Fusion dug, the more it began to notice names that Simpson and Fritsch had come across during their days covering Russian corruption and the clearer it became that the focus of Fusion s research going forward would be Trump s entanglements with Russia.To help them make sense of what they were seeing, Simpson and Fritsch engaged the services of a former British intelligence agent and Russia expert named Christopher Steele. He would produce a series of memos which collectively became known as the Steele dossier that raised deeply alarming questions about the nature of Trump s ties to a hostile foreign power. Those memos made their way to U.S. intelligence agencies, and then to President Barack Obama and President-elect Trump. On January 10, 2017, the Steele dossier broke into public view, and the Trump-Russia story reached escape velocity. At the time, Fusion GPS was just a ten-person consulting firm tucked away above a Starbucks near Dupont Circle, but it would soon be thrust into the center of the biggest news story on the planet a story that would lead to accusations of witch hunts, a relentless campaign of persecution by congressional Republicans, bizarre conspiracy theories, lawsuits by Russian oligarchs, and the Mueller report.In Crime in Progress, Simpson and Fritsch tell their story for the first time a tale of the high-stakes pursuit of one of the biggest, most important stories of our time no matter the costs.

Miscellaneous Cases of Neptune King

In their first case-A Weighty Problem-they're hired by Mrs Mabel Corpetant, a rather obese lady who believes her son and daughter-in-law are trying to kill her. It doesn't take them long to realize she is paranoid and their sympathies lie with the long suffering relatives. They prove that her son and his wife are innocent of any killer motives, but they still end up saving her life under harrowing circumstances. In their second case-Daylight Robbery-Richard Steele, son of a wealthy industrialist who was disinherited because he married a poor girl, engages them to find the man who killed his pregnant wife, Geraldine, during a supposed shop robbery gone wrong. The case proves challenging as they can't find anyone who had reason to kill her. Are the police correct in their theory of robbery gone wrong? Neptune doesn't believe so. Following Sherlock Holmes' rule of when everything is eliminated whatever remains no matter how improbable must be the correct solution, he convinces Shark of an unlikely suspect and they set about proving him right. Their final solution to the crime is shocking to the extreme and although they are successful in apprehending the killer, their client becomes the ultimate victim three times over. Their third case-The Black Rose-sees them hired by Irene Thompson to prove her brother-in-law's innocence after he is arrested for murdering his wife (her sister). It doesn't take them long to prove Hall's innocence despite him having the oldest motive in the world. Barry Hall and Irene are in love. His wife was in the way and that was enough for corner cutting Inspector Sandalls. Proving Hall's innocence is only half the case. Their next step is to find the real killer. As they progress their investigation reveals that Jennifer Hall was not exactly faithful either and they are soon on the track of the real killer, the clincher being the black rose the victim had on her when she died. By capturing the real killer they also incidentally save the lives of two of his future victims. Racially Motivated is the final case in this book. Chief Inspector Waller from Scotland Yard introduces them to Mrs Byron, a Negro woman whose husband he arrested some three years previously for murder. The conclusion never sat well with him, based as it was on circumstantial evidence but he had been under pressure to close it fast. Running into the lady reminded him of the case. As he couldn't reopen the case, he brought her to K&J in the hope that they could do what he couldn't-prove her husband innocent. While the lady is distrustful of the police and white people in general, she is somewhat reassured by Milo, their man in charge of insurance investigations. He helps to bridge the gap and point out to their new client racism works both ways. While her husband may have been victimized because of his colour, her judging Neptune and Shark on their colour is exactly the same thing and he urges her to give them a chance. They soon change her mind as it doesn't take them long to find another more suitable suspect and set about proving his guilt and freeing her husband Jeremiah.
