Nick Davies Scores Book Deal for “Hack Attack”

Nick Davies, the Guardian journalist who broke the story of the News of the World phone hacking scandal that has Rupert Murdoch eating humble pie these days, has gotten a book deal.

The book will be called Hack Attack (not to be confused with a 1980s-era McDonald’s ad campaign, for those who might be feeling the strange onset of a Mac attack.) American rights went to Mr. Davies’ compatriot, Mitzi Angel, at Faber & Faber (a division of FSG.) Ms. Angel acquired the book in a pre-empt, according to Publishers Weekly.
