Bill Browder, author of Red Notice, founder and CEO of Hermitage Capital Management, was the largest foreign investor in Russia until 2005. Since 2009, when his lawyer, Sergei Magnitsky, was murdered in prison after uncovering a $230 million fraud committed by Russian government officials, Browder has been leading a campaign to expose Russia’s endemic corruption and human rights abuses. Following his explosive bestseller Red Notice, comes Freezing Order, another gripping thriller chronicling how he became Putin’s number one enemy.
Bill will be interviewed by Carrie Gracie. Carrie worked for the BBC for 31 years, latterly as China Editor. She left in 2018 in protest at unequal pay. She is the author of Equal: How We Fix the Gender Pay Gap.
