The death of Dr David Kelly in 2003 is one of the strangest events in recent British history. This scrupulous scientist, an expert on weapons of mass destruction, was caught up in the rush to war in Iraq.

He felt under pressure from those around Tony Blair to provide evidence that Saddam Hussein was producing weapons of mass destruction. Kelly seemed to have tipped into sudden depression when he was outed as a source for Andrew Gilligan.

But the circumstances of his death are replete with disquieting questions - every detail, from his motives to the method of his death, his body's discovery and the way in which the state investigated his demise, seems on close examination not to make sense. There was never a full coroner's inquest into his death, which would have allowed medical and other evidence to be carefully interrogated.

In this painstaking and meticulous book, Miles Goslett shows why we should be deeply sceptical of the official narrative and reminds us of the desperate measures those in power resorted to in that feverish summer of 2003.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Masterful ... Goslett's forensic skills put the highly paid lawyer James Dingemans to shame' Daily Mail.
'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.
'A notable contribution to contemporary political history' Open Democracy.
'A compelling, authoritative insight into possibly the most controversial death in Britain this century' Observer.
