Event Description

Friday September 12th – 7.00pm – 8.30pm
Nick Davies – Hack Attack
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 BuckinghamPalace. 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 - andDowning 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. 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.
 
We're delighted that Nick will be at the Bookshop to talk about his experiences.
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.
 
There will also be an opportunity to ask questions and Nick will be happy to sign copies of the book.
 
Tickets are just £5, redeemable on the book.
