Description

–THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER–

‘An invaluable contribution to history.’ Serhii Plokhy, Evening Standard

‘Tells the story of the disaster and its gruesome aftermath with thriller-like flair. Midnight in Chernobyl is wonderful and chilling … written with skill and passion.’ Luke Harding, The Observer

‘Superb, enthralling and necessarily terrifying…

every step feels spring-loaded with tension… extraordinary.’ The New York Times

Early in the morning of April 26, 1986, Reactor Number Four of the Chernobyl Atomic Energy Station exploded, triggering history’s worst nuclear disaster. In the thirty years since then, Chernobyl has become lodged in the collective nightmares of the world: shorthand for the spectral horrors of radiation poisoning, for a dangerous technology slipping its leash, for ecological fragility, and for what can happen when a dishonest and careless state endangers not only its own citizens, but all of humanity.

But the real story of the accident, clouded from the beginning by secrecy, propaganda, and misinformation, has long remained in dispute.
