The death of Alexander Litvinenko

- a story that puzzles the world

The death of Alexander Litvinenko has puzzled millions of people. It happened in London back in  October 2006 and new articles, TV and radio documentaries are still being produced weekly. 

He was poisoned by one of the most lethal substances, Polonium 210, when someone put the poison into a teapot at a West London hotel. Russian spies have been blamed for the murder of the former KGB officer who had defected to the west, but despite years of investigation the culprits have not been found.

Pianoman Derek Conlon was working a short contract at the hotel and drank from the same cup as Mr Litvinenko. The dishwasher was believed to be faulty and Derek was also poisoned. He survived but his health and possibly his mind will be affected forever.

In the book he devotes over 2,000 words to this incident and the reactions of police, Secret Service and doctors. Many of their actions appear to be unbelievable.
