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.

Dial M for Murdoch by Tom Watson and Martin Hickman – review

O ne would not wish the serene back pages of Review to become the scene of an ugly legal battle between the bosses of News International and me, so I will not say that it is clear, from this book, that Rupert Murdoch is a liar. There is indeed another reading: that he is suffering from amnesia. Well, I'm glad we have cleared that up. Still, earlier this year the House of Commons culture committee report on phone hacking at News International described Rupert Murdoch as "not a fit person to exercise the stewardship of a major international company". Or, you might think after reading more of his vague and feeble excuses in this book, a whelk stall. Where to start?

Dial M for Murdoch

Published in the United Kingdom on 19 April by Allen Lane , an imprint of Penguin Books the book deals with the relationship between newspapers belonging to Rupert Murdoch 's News International and senior British politicians and police officers, and how the company allegedly used its political influence to mask illegal newsgathering techniques at its London headquarters. Details of the title and publication date were kept under wraps, with those involved in its production required to sign confidentiality agreements, a move adopted amid fears News International would try to prevent the launch. Allen Lane announced the book's release on 16 April, three days before the publication date. The timeframe between receipt of the final manuscript and the book's publication is believed to be the shortest in Penguin's history. It's out this Thursday.
