At first, it seemed like a small story. The royal correspondent of the News of the World was cuaght listening in on Buckingham Palace voicemails. He was quietly sent to prison and the case was closed.

But Nick Davies felt sure there was a lot more going on.

And he was right.

Hack Attack is the definitive inside story of one of the major scandals of our age, told by the man who exposed it. Davies and a network of rebel lawyers, MPs and celebrities took on Rupert Murdoch, one of the most powerful men in the world, and in bringing him down they uncovered a world of crime and cover-up reaching from the newsroom to Scotland Yard and to Downing Street.

This is the story of a network of corruption rooted deep within our society, and how it was dragged into the light.

'This has all the elements - lying, corruption, blackmail - at the highest levels of government by the biggest newspaper in London' GEORGE CLOONEY

Recensione:

"This is the book we’ve been waiting for, the thrilling and important inside story of how a single reporter came through with the truth of the hacking scandals. He exposed shameful intrusions, the years of deceit, lies, and bullying. And he did more. He revealed a rottenness at the heart of British life in the relations of press, police, and Parliament, institutions that, taken as a whole, failed the big test. Hack Attack is an indictment of the worst of journalism, but is itself an exhilarating demonstration of how the best of journalism?hard-won, honest reporting?is the lifeblood of any democracy." ( Sir Harold Evans)

"First in the Guardian and now in this book, the reporting of Nick Davies has revealed the insidious abuse of power?and the public trust?by the Murdoch press from the top down. The British hacking scandal is the ultimate expression of Murdoch-culture run amok: corruption in the Fourth Estate as dangerous to democracy as the worst excesses of heads of state. " ( Carl Bernstein)

"This has all the elements – lying, corruption, blackmail – at the highest levels of government by the biggest newspaper in London. And the fact that it’s true is the best part. Nick is a brave and stubborn reporter and we consider it an honor to put his book to film." ( George Clooney (who is set to direct the film of the book))

"Nick Davies is Britain’s greatest investigative journalist... This book is as exciting as a thriller but far more important... should be compulsory reading in journalism schools and must be read by anyone who wishes to understand how British politics actually works." (Peter Oborne Telegraph)

"Gripping …the best account we have of the phone-hacking scandal and the attendant police corruption and cover-ups...A masterly summary of the hacking affair, as well as the ingenuity and persistence that lead to great journalism." (Henry Porter Observer)

Descrizione del libro:

The stand-out, definitive book about phone-hacking, the biggest scandal of our age, told by the man who broke the story

Descrizione libro Vintage Publishing, United Kingdom, 2015. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. 198 x 129 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Award-winning journalist Nick Davies spent more than six years uncovering the truth about the crimes at the News of the World. Hack Attack is the definitive, inside story of the whole scandal. This book tells for the first time how Davies and a network of rebel lawyers, MPs and celebrities worked tirelessly to expose the facts: how they challenged Rupert Murdoch, one of the most powerful men in the world; what News International did to protect itself; how the police and the press regulator failed to uncover the truth, and challenged those who were trying to expose it. Drawing on dozens of exclusive interviews with private investigators, journalists, politicians, police officers and Murdoch executives, Hack Attack blows the lid off the world of Fleet Street, Scotland Yard and Downing Street. It discloses in detail the full extent of the bullying, cheating and law-breaking in the newsroom of the News of the World, under Rebekah Brooks and Andy Coulson amongst others, and reconstructs the history of failure and official secrecy inside police ranks. It goes inside the corridors of power, to reveal how Murdoch s executives and journalists pressured ministers and officials for favours for themselves and their proprietor, and uncovers the chaos inside Murdoch s empire as the scandal reached its climax and rival factions succumbed to in-fighting and panic. It is also a thrilling account of an investigative journalist s journey, showing us exactly how the quest unfolded, and is a shining example of the might of good journalism. Hack Attack is the story of what happened when truth caught up with power. Ambitious, comprehensive, gripping, essential - there will be no other book like it.
