An Inconvenient Death

Stephen Glover of the Daily Mail reported in 2013 that Goslett has also written about the death of Dr David Kelly.[13]

Goslett's book "An Inconvenient Death" was published on 5 April 2018 by Head of Zeus with the following synopsis:

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 WMD. 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.[14]

talkRADIO interview
