Product description

Review

Superb, enthralling and necessarily terrifying . . . the accident unfurls with a horrible inevitability. Weaving together the experiences of those who were there that night, Higginbotham marshals the details so meticulously that every step feels spring-loaded with tension. . . . Amid so much rich reporting and scrupulous analysis, some major themes emerge. . . . Higginbotham’s extraordinary book is another advance in the long struggle to fill in some of the gaps, bringing much of what was hidden into the light. ― New York Times

An invaluable contribution to history... tells a compelling story exceptionally well. -- Serhii Plokhy ―
Evening Standard

Reads like a thriller: forensic, compelling and utterly terrifying. ―
Mail on Sunday

Higginbotham 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. A tale of hubris and doomed ambition. ― The Observer

Adam Higginbotham uses all of the techniques of the top-notch longform journalist to full effect. He swoops us into the heart of the catastrophe. ―
The Guardian
