Joseph Weisberg…an absorbing account of Mr. Litvinenko's life and bizarre murder. Along the way [Cowell] explains how Russia lost and got back its tremendous energy resources after the fall of the Soviet Union, describes how wealthy Russians have turned London into "Moscow-on-the-Thames" and tries to determine if the Litvinenko murder is the harbinger of a new and especially dangerous kind of terrorism…Mr. Cowell follows the British investigation as the police chase the traces of the isotope around London, reconstructing the chronology of events on the day of Mr. Litvinenko's murder. For everyone who's tired of the endless forensic investigations that take up so many hours on television and so many pages in crime novels, this nuclear street work is engrossing in a whole new way.
