About this book
The first connected account of the extraordinary lengths to which the Murdochs' News Corporation went to 'put the problem in a box' (in James Murdoch's words), how its efforts to maintain and extend its power were aided by its political and police friends, and how it was finally exposed. It is co-written by the Labour MP who tenaciously investigated the Murdochs, and the "Independent" journalist who drove through his paper's coverage of the phone hacking scandal. Paperback edition.
For years Rupert Murdoch's newspapers had been hacking, spying, blagging, bribing and destroying the evidence. They thought they were untouchable. They were wrong.
