KGB Spy Murder Solved: A notorious 2006 Russian spy murder has finally been solved. "Ex-KGB Spy Murdered on Orders of Putin" was a typical headline back in the day. Alexander Litvinenko died of nuclear poisoning ordered by Russian president Vladimir Putin, news stories alleged.
Now there's finally a solution to this puzzling and long-unsolved case. Author William Dunkerley's groundbreaking research uncovered a surprising mystery inside the mystery. It led straight to the only reasonable conclusion. His new book, Litvinenko Murder Case Solved, spells it all out in clear and authoritative terms.
Dunkerley has been dubbed the world's foremost authority on how this case has been covered in the news.
He was called into the case by the International Federation of Journalists in 2007. His charge was to conduct extensive research into all the Litvinenko media reports.
Dunkerley claims that many of the news reports about Litvinenko don't match the facts. "While news reports proclaimed a murder, no coroner ever ruled the death a homicide. Millions were spent on an inquest, but the mystery still went unsolved," he says. What's more, Dunkerley explains, a widely-reported deathbed accusation against Putin has since been proven a hoax. The hoaxer even confessed.
What could account for these and other discrepancies? Dunkerley begins with general background on the case. Then he presents a riveting analysis of all the ins and outs that led to solving the case. An extensive collection of live reports offers rare insights into all the key developments right from the start of the Coroner's Inquest.
