** THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER**
The never-before-told, inside story of the Steele Dossier and the Trump-Russia investigation
'The best procedural yet written about the discovery of Trump's Russia ties' New York Times
The founders of the Washington-based intelligence firm Fusion GPS Glenn Simpson and Peter Fritsch were the first to uncover Trump's disturbing ties to the Kremlin and the crimes that have since plagued his presidency. Working with British former MI6 agent and Russia expert Christopher Steele, they produced the notorious dossier which disclosed that the Trump team was deeply compromised by a hostile foreign power bent on disrupting the West and influencing the US presidential election.
In Crime in Progress, the authors chronicle their high-stakes investigation and desperate efforts to warn both the American and British governments, the FBI and the media - no matter the cost. When the dossier finally exploded onto the world stage after a leak, it led to the Mueller report and disrupted Trump's secret planned rapprochement with Putin's Russia. After years on his trail, the authors' inescapable conclusion is that Trump is an asset of the Russian government, whether he knows it or not.
A real-life political thriller with the makings of a modern classic, Crime in Progress is the definitive story of the pursuit of the truth about Trump and one of the greatest betrayals in American history.
