PAPERBACK EDITION INCLUDES AN AFTERWORD WITH NEW INFORMATION ON THE KELLY CASE.

A DAILY TELEGRAPH BOOK OF THE YEAR.

'A compelling, authoritative insight into possibly the most controversial death in Britain this century' The Observer.
'Goslett's like Poirot; he asks questions ... Spooky and scary' Evening Standard.
'Masterful ... This book made me proud of my trade as a journalist' Daily Mail.
'This searing excavation of the mysterious death of Dr David Kelly is investigative journalism at its best. It is brave, relentless, dazzlingly revealing' Peter Oborne.

In March 2003 British forces invaded Iraq after Tony Blair said the country could deploy weapons of mass destruction at 45 minutes' notice. A few months later, government scientist Dr David Kelly was unmasked by Blair's officials as the assumed source of a BBC news report challenging this claim. Within days, Dr Kelly was found dead in a wood near his home. Blair immediately convened the controversial Hutton Inquiry, which concluded Dr Kelly committed suicide.

Yet key questions remain: could Dr Kelly really have taken his life in the manner declared? And why did Blair's government derail the coroner's inquest into Dr Kelly's death? In this meticulous account, award-winning journalist Miles Goslett shows why we should be sceptical of the official story of what happened in that desperate summer of 2003.

Review:

'A compelling, authoritative insight into possibly the most controversial death in Britain this century' Observer.

'Masterful ... This book made me proud of my trade as a journalist' Daily Mail.

'A notable contribution to contemporary political history' Open Democracy.

'This searing excavation of the mysterious death of Dr David Kelly is investigative journalism at its best. It is brave, relentless, dazzlingly revealing' Peter Oborne.

'Everyone, from Tony Blair downwards, was insistent that Dr Kelly had committed suicide yet the evidence, which Goslett examines in scrupulous detail in this gripping narrative, suggests otherwise' Richard Ingrams.

'Goslett confines himself to the demand for an inquest, and his fine book eloquently spells out why all of us, including Dr Kelly's family, friends and colleagues, deserve one' The Lobster.

'Goslett's well-researched book about the death in 2003 of the weapons expert Dr David Kelly raises troubling questions about abuse of process' Daily Telegraph, Books of the Year.

'This book takes us back to those weeks when New Labour 'spin' seemed to generate its darkest, most frantic moments ... Goslett argues convincingly that potentially important witnesses were not called and inconsistencies in evidence were left unexplored' Mail on Sunday.

'Award-winning investigative journalist Miles Goslett draws together the facts in an intriguing and profoundly disturbing narrative that poses many questions that are yet to be answered' Daily Mail.

'Drawing heavily on medical expertise, Goslett carefully unpicks the gaps in Hutton's probe. He finds enough contradictions in the inquiry [...] to leave the reader deeply uneasy about how the scientist ended up dead in the woods' Morning Star.
