"A fascinating read. An extraordinary book."--Andrea Mitchell
"A master class in how Washington works."--The Atlantic "I hope
some talented filmmaker makes a movie out of the new book by Glenn
Simpson and Peter Fritsch, Crime in Progress . . . the best
procedural yet written about the discovery of Trump's Russia ties.
It demolishes a number of right-wing talking points, including the
claim that the Steele dossier formed the basis of the F.B.I.'s
counterintelligence inquiry into Trump."--Michelle Goldberg,
The New York Times
"[Simpson and Fritsch] present a mountain of evidence that Trump's dealings with corrupt foreign players--particularly those from the former Soviet Union--are both real and go back decades."--Jane Mayer, The New Yorker "Glenn Simpson and Peter Fritsch's Crime in Progress untangles one of the great mysteries of the Trump era--the full story of the Steele dossier--and provides a fascinating insight into the investigatory mind at work. It's an indispensable guide to the Russia scandals--and a reminder of the redemptive power of facts over lies."--Jeffrey Toobin "We just got a really, really, really, really good new account of how [it] all came together. . . . I feel fairly steeped in this matter and I learned something on every page."--Rachel Maddow
