This book,records in diary form,the days July4-19/2011 and the dramatic events events that ocurred from the exposure of phone tapping (particularly the phone of a murdered child) to the closure of the News of the World newspaper.
The corruption of the media,police and public officals and the vast extent of hacking uncovered led to the Levenson inquiry.
This book is well written and researched.There is alist of main characters and the names of 72 persons arrested following investigations.
The book fails on 2 pointa a)ther is no index and b)the type size is far too small-both these defects must be put down to the publishers incompetence.
