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.
