“McIntosh needs to be rubbed out.”
After hacking thousands of private phone messages, it was the one message Dan McIntosh never expected to hear. The order for his own execution.
The trouble is this.
McIntosh can think of a lot of people who'd like to see him die.
Preferably very nastily.
A former footballer, turned phone hacker for the tabloids, McIntosh is caught up in a corrupt world of ruthless hacks, bent coppers, fading celebrities and brutal gangsters. Lies are traded like banknotes, and nobody is what they appear to be.
With his own life on the line, he will need all his wiles to survive - otherwise he will be literally Hacked To Death.
'A gritty and relevant thriller that gets as painfully close to the truth as it dares' - Scott Griffin, best-selling author of The Donor and The Benefactor.
James Robinson covered the phone-hacking story for The Guardian, and has used his knowledge of the technology and techniques of eves-dropping on mobile phones to create a compelling crime story inspired by real events.
