I was seized with a keen desire to see Holmes again... He was pacing the room swiftly, eagerly, his hands clasped behind him.

An evening of discussion of Beyond the Crash, the new book by Gordon Brown

The financial crisis has held the world firmly in its grip since it began in 2007. In his three years in office, the former Prime Minister was at the centre of the world's response to the crisis.

In his new book Beyond the Crash, Brown will offer an insight into the events that led to the financial downward spiral and the reactions of world leaders as they took steps to avoid further disaster. Long admired for his grasp of economic issues, Brown offers measures he believes should be adopted to secure jobs and justice.
Beyond the Crash offers a unique perspective on the financial crisis as well as innovative ideas that will help create a sound economic future and will help readers understand what really has happened to our economy.

Blackwell's Bookshop and Simon & Schuster invite you to join our panel of experts in a lively discussion. The final details of panel members have yet to be confirmed but we guarantee a stimulating evening.

This event will be chaired by Alistair Moffat.

Tickets are £4 and can be obtained in person from Blackwell Bookshop, 53-62 South Bridge, Edinburgh, EH1 1YS or by phoning  0131 622 8222.
If you wish for the tickets to be posted out we will charge £0.50 for P&P.

Tickets will be redeemable against the price of the book.
