For years Rupert Murdoch's newspapers had been hacking, spying, blagging, bribing and destroying the evidence. They thought they were untouchable. They were wrong.
This is the book that exposed the shadow state at the heart of Britain. Now fully updated with the very latest in the News Corp scandal, it tells the story of how a criminal conspiracy involving politicians, the police and the press was revealed; the smears and threats they used to cover it up; the brave whistleblowers who cracked open the case - and what it now means for all of us.

The authors weave the events of the past decade into a compulsive narrative that includes not only phone hacking but email interception, surveillance, burglary, cover-ups, political influence and - at its darkest - murder. Anyone who has lost track of what happened, or why it matters, should read this book -- Jonathan Heawood * Daily Telegraph *
A thriller on par with the legendary All the President's Men, the story of Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation and British phone hacking scandal makes for political drama at its finest... a gripping account that will likely be a go-to source in years to come. * Publishers Weekly *
