Publishers Description: Since 2008, award-winning investigative journalist Nick Davies has worked tirelessly - determined, driven, brilliant - to uncover the truth about the goings on behind the scenes at the News of the World and News International. This book now brings us the definitive, inside story of the whole scandal. How a network of lawyers, politicians and celebrities worked with Davies to expose the facts and to stand up to Rupert Murdoch, arguably one of the most powerful men in the world; how News International attempted to protect itself with lies and threats and money; how the police and the press regulators failed; how the prime minister ended up with the wrong man inside his office. Hack Attack discloses in detail for the first time the full extent of crimes committed by the corporation, and other Fleet Street papers, and probes Murdoch's network and his relationship with government. It is also a thrilling, nail-biting account of an investigative journalist's journey, showing us how the quest unfolded, and is a shining example of the might of good journalism. This is not simply a story about journalists behaving badly, this is a story about power and truth. Ambitious, comprehensive, gripping, essential - Hack Attack is the definitive book about the biggest scandal of our age. There will be no other book like it.
