it was amazing

One of the most arresting non-fiction books I've ever read. A clear, detailed and compelling account of Alexander Litvinenko's murder by the Russian state - including all of the cack-handed bungling, which only serves to humanise the story and hence make it that much more horrific. Fascinating detail on the investigation, too.
