Death of a Dissident: The Poisoning of Alexander Litvinenko and the Return of the KGB is a book written by Alexander Goldfarb and Marina Litvinenko about the life and death of former FSB officer, and double-agent Alexander Litvinenko, who was poisoned by the radioactive polonium in London in November 2006.

The life of Alexander Litvinenko has been described in the book at the background of power struggle between different political forces in post-Soviet Russia.
