Guardian Reporter Nick Davies Lands ‘Hack Attack’ Book Deal

The journalist who broke the story will write book to be published in fall 2012

The British phone hacking scandal may yet claim the jobs of even higher-ranking officials, but the journalist who broke the story open has already inked a book deal.

Nick Davies, the reporter for the Guardian who first exposed the broader scope of the hacking, has sold a book about the scandal titled “Hack Attack” to be released in the fall of 2012.

Davies sold the U.S. rights to Faber & Faber, an affiliate of Farrar, Strauss & Giroux, and the U.K. rights to Chatto & Windus, a subsidiary of Random House.
