Publisher's Synopsis

**SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER**

Read the definitive inside story of the News International Phone Hacking scandal, told by the man who exposed it.

At first, it seemed like a small story. The royal correspondent of the News of the World was caught 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.

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.

'A masterly summary of the hacking affair, as well as the ingenuity and persistence that lead to great journalism' Observer

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