Overview

From phone taps, to kiss-and-tells, to eventual redemption: the story of a journalist drawn into the depths of the world of tabloid sleaze. Graham Johnson was a fresh-faced journalist with an ambition to break the big news stories and make his name as a star reporter when an offer came in to work at a leading tabloid... he couldn't say no. Instantly, he found himself drawn into a world of sleaze, spin, and corruption - where bending the law was justifiable in the hunt for the big-selling story and bending the truth was the norm. Against his better judgement, Graham found his niche in this new world and, what's more, he found that he was good at it. In his time at first the "News of the World" then the "Sunday Mirror," he made a name for himself as a man who could deliver the story, no matter what - a kind of tabloid terrorist who rifled through celebrity's rubbish bins, staked out politicians' hotel rooms, and paid-up page three girls to seduce Premiership footballers, all in the name of selling newspapers. Hack is a compelling and intoxicating story of one man's time in the tabloid jungle - a world that in its heady mix of sex, drugs, and casual immorality is reminiscent of the City - and how he ultimately saved himself.
