A gripping investigative account of how Russia's spies helped elect Donald Trump, backed Brexit, murdered enemies and threatened the very basis of western democracy.
From the AWARD-WINNING JOURNALIST and #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR of COLLUSION
'Luke Harding is one of the best reporters in the world.' - Robert Saviano
'[Collusion is] a superb piece of work ... essential reading for anyone who cares for his country.' - John Le Carre
The operatives come in disguise. They pose as tourists, journalists and businessmen. Utterly ruthless, sometimes bungling and always ambitious, they roam from Salisbury to Helsinki, Ukraine to the Central African Republican, London to Washington. SHADOW STATE is a riveting and alarming investigation into those spies and the way Russia has used them to wage an increasingly bold war in the UK and beyond.
The Kremlin has attempted to reshape politics in their own mould; the future of Western democracy is at stake as a result.
Luke Harding is an award-winning foreign correspondent with the Guardian and a #1 New York Times bestselling author. Between 2007 and 2011 he was the Guardian's Moscow bureau chief; the Kremlin expelled him from the country in the first case of its kind since the cold war. He is the author of Collusion, A Very Expensive Poison, The Snowden Files, and Mafia State, as well as the co-author of WikiLeaks and The Liar (nominated for the Orwell Prize). Two of Harding's books have been made into films: The Fifth Estate and Snowden.
