A SUNDAY TIMES TOP 5 BESTSELLER

LONGLISTED FOR THE SAMUEL JOHNSON PRIZE 2014

At first, it seemed like a small story. The royal editor of the News of the World was caught listening to the voicemail messages of staff at Buckingham Palace. In 2007 he and a private investigator were sentenced to prison and the case was closed. But Nick Davies felt sure there was more to it and began his painstaking investigation which ultimately exposed a world of crime and cover-up, of fear and favour - reaching all the way to the top.

This book is the definitive, inside story of one of the major scandals of our age. Drawing on exclusive interviews with private investigators, journalists, politicians, police officers and Murdoch executives, it blows the lid off Fleet Street, Scotland Yard - and Downing Street. It tells for the first time how Davies and a network of rebel lawyers, MPs and celebrities took on Rupert Murdoch, one of the most powerful men in the world. It takes us into the newsroom of the News of the World and exposes the bullying and law-breaking that went on there, and into the underworld of the private investigators who hacked phones, listened to live calls and bribed the police. It discloses how News International attempted to protect itself with lies and money; how the press regulator floundered; and the history of failure and official secrecy inside police ranks. Above all, this book paints an intimate portrait of the power elite which gave Murdoch privileged access to government, and allowed him and his people to intimidate anyone who stood up to them.

Hack Attack is a nail-biting account of an investigative journalist's quest, and is a shining example of the might of good journalism. It tells the story of what happened when truth caught up with power.

Pressestimmen

"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)

"His set pieces...are breathtaking... Hack Attack captures a picture of bullying and nepotism that should be absent from a democratic society" (Martin Hickman The Independent)

"What is revealed here, in painful, careful detail, is a journalism that held power in contempt.Nick Davies has done a colossal service to Britain's democracy.Hack Attack is the book of a very bold reporter about a passage of arms that he won, to our great benefit." (John Lloyd Financial Times)

"Davies' account of how Murdoch and his dysfunctional lieutenants ensnared, enslaved, and frightened generations of politicians is blistering." (Will Gore Independent on Sunday)

"THE book to drizzle your Piz Buin on." (Hugh Grant Twitter)

"Nick Davies' astonishing account of the scandal that engulfed Britain (and Rupert Murdoch) in 2011...a reminder of the power of investigative journalism" (Esquire)

"[Davies] tells a brilliant story [and] takes us through the years of sniffing and delving with energy, determination and resilience" (Peter Preston Observer)

"A riveting page-turner. Let's remember that it took a journalist to do the job the authorities had evaded" (Ruth Dudley Edwards Irish Independent)

Von Jane Griffiths - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I haven't finished reading this yet, but I know what happened! A lively, readable and interesting book. A bit pious in its tone. The Guardian after all is no stranger to ruining people's lives with its journalism. I hope there weren't many inaccuracies in this book. I found one, when he refers to Martin Salter, targeted (allegedly, if you believe his press releases) for "daring to oppose" the News of the World's proposed "Sarah's Law", as "MP for Reading". He wasn't. Although that is how he usually described himself. He was, from 1997-2010, Labour MP for Reading West. I should know, as from 1997-2005 I was Labour MP for Reading East. I hope Nick Davies did not just read one of Salter's press releases (he used to bombard the Guardian with them) and take it as true. Surely no Guardian journalist would ever do that?
5.0 von 5 Sternen An author with courage 26. August 2014

Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Huge read but well worth the effort. Nick Davies has written a book that needed writing. Not intended to be a thriller but 'Hack Attack' is up there with with the wickedest page-turners and the scary part for the reader is that this book is NOT FICTION. I hope the author comes Down Under to write his next book. Australia could use a journalist with the talent and dogged bravery of Nick Davies.

fairly pacey but funny how journalists take credit for everything when all they have done is written down what the whistleblower has told them

Brilliantly told story, as unputdownable as a thriller - and a great piece of work in the service of democracy underlying it...
