A Very Expensive Poison
The Assassination of Alexander Litvinenko and Putin's War with the West
A true story of corruption and revenge, A Very Expensive Poison follows the life and death of Alexander Litvinenko, who was brazenly poisoned in central London with a rare, highly radioactive substance. Author Luke Harding, who spent a decade reporting on the story and interviewing those closest to the events, argues that Litvinenko's assassination marked the beginning of a new Cold War with Russia, and delves into the involvement of the Russian state and its powerful enemies. A shocking tale of subterfuge and tragedy, this book is a must-read for fans of true crime and political thrillers.
