Luke Harding – A Very Expensive Poison
Thursday 16th February 2017 - Starts 7pm
TICKET PRICE: £8
The definitive story of the murder of Litvinenko and Russia’s war with the West.
Former Moscow correspondent and best-selling author Luke Harding launches his latest book ‘A Very Expensive Poison’, the shocking true story of the Litvinenko poisoning.
Author of international bestsellers ‘The Snowden Files’ and ‘Wikileaks’, Harding is also an award-winning foreign correspondent for the Guardian. 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. He is the author of several bestsellers, two of which have been made into films; ‘The Fifth Estate’ and ‘Snowden’.
‘A Very Expensive Poison’ 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.
Presented by City Books. This special evening will include a reading, Q&A and book signing.
