Fascinating account of the poisoning case . . . Other books will follow on the Skripals, but they will struggle to match the texture of Urban’s research, its knowledgeable hinterland
A scrupulous piece of reporting, necessary, timely and very sobering
Engrossing . . . Urban tells the story of Skripal’s undercover career well, much of it previously unknown and gleaned from around 10 hours of conversations with him at his Salisbury home
Based on his extensive interviews with Skripal, provide an original and often fascinating read on the games that spies played in the wake of the Cold War
