LUKE HARDING : A VERY EXPENSIVE POISON
The definitive story of the murder of Litvinenko and Russia’s war with the West
Luke Harding is an award winning foreign correspondent with The Guardian and a best-selling author. His latest book ‘A Very Expensive Poison’
reads like a political thriller. It is the definitive inside story of the life and death of Alexander Litvinenko. Harding traces the journey of the nuclear poison across London, from hotel room to nightclub, assassin to victim; it is a deadly trail that seemingly leads back to the Russian state itself. This is a shocking real life revenge tragedy, with corruption and subterfuge at every turn. There are walk on parts for the Russian mafia, the KGB, MI6 agents, British Police and dissidents. At the heart of this though, is an individual and his family torn apart by a ruthless crime.
Luke Harding is also the author of international bestsellers ‘The Snowden Files’ and ‘Wikileaks’ During his time as Moscow bureau chief, the Kremlin expelled him from the country in the first case of its kind since the Cold War. His previous books have been made into films; ‘The Fifth Estate’ and ‘Snowden’.
