Davies began work on Hack Attack in July at the same time that parliamentarian Tom Watson began work on his work on the phone hacking scandal, Dial M for Murdoch. The book contains sixteen chapters divided into three sections; 'Crime and Concealment', 'The Power Game' and 'Truth'.
The book is prefaced by a 'Who's Who' of people mentioned in the book and an author's note. An epilogue ends the book, followed by an appendix that lists 41 private investigators that were used by British newspapers; many of whom have been convicted of various crimes.
It is, as well, the story of modern Britain and how its standards and politics have been degraded by one man's ruthless acquisition of power Davies has laid it all bare in an exciting, clear and honest narrative It is a masterly summary of the hacking affair, as well as the ingenuity and persistence that lead to great journalism. Evidence is destroyed just before he gets his hands on it, the police redact documents so as to denude them of value.
Then, just in the nick of time, a confidential source or secret document arrives. In that sense, the book moves right along, from cliffhanger to cliffhanger. True enough, he loves newspapering and has been known to become deeply involved in editorial matters, but no real case is made that he knew the specifics of how his papers were coming up with very private facts about public figures.
A lone gunslinger takes on a dishonest town, and in the end the bad guys flee. It is both more complicated and a bit less satisfying in reality, but that would be another book, and probably a less enjoyable one.
This book should be compulsory reading in journalism schools and must be read by anyone who wishes to understand how British politics actually works. A more critical review came from Will Gore in The Independent who wrote that Davies 'knows how to weave a compelling tale', and that his 'account of how Murdoch and his dysfunctional lieutenants ensnared, enslaved, and frightened generations of politicians is blistering. Two reviewers critiqued Davies's epilogue to Hack Attack that was critical of neo-liberalism.
Aug 17, TamaraLynne Stewart rated it really liked it. Oct 22, Bill rated it it was amazing. NOT a completely happy ending. View all 3 comments. Feb 19, Rosemary rated it liked it. This is a fast paced, violent thriller which like Remorseless is not for the faint-hearted but is a rollicking read. Jumping from the Pentagon to London and back to Thailand, the story deals with issues of justice versus legality and misguided preconceptions about corruption in Thailand, the USA and Britain.
It is a tale of the rich and powerful in London who pulled strings to escape the real FBI Operation Candyman permitting them to continue their lucrative child sex and pornography business. They meet their comeuppance when a young genius hacker gets hold of secret files from the CIA and his journalist sister uses the files to expose them. The main characters are each a mixture of good and bad, of naivety and self indulgence. The common thread is that they each blur the lines of right and wrong raising questions as to where those lines should be drawn.
Will - please keep it up, as horrific as your stories are in places, it makes people more aware that these things go on and that our "civilised" society colludes.
I dearly wished to rate this book higher. But two things struck a star each. First, the very good though: The plot is stellar. If there is one thing that Mr. Patching did very well, it was creating a plot that grabbed the reader from the beginning. The dark theme is, to me, a major positive as well.
While I thought the body count detracted a little, it fit the theme. Now, the two detractors: The narrative structure is highly distracting.
I understand the idea of telling the story in real time seq I dearly wished to rate this book higher. I understand the idea of telling the story in real time sequence. But the chapters were so long that the near-constant shifts gave me whiplash. When combined with the omniscient narrator, this was just too much. Tied in with the narrative issue is the excess of characters overwhelming the narrative.
Rapid introductions in such a scattered narrative again overwhelm an otherwise amazing story. Read this book, but be prepared for a messy structure and an over-abundance of characters. May 23, Danita rated it it was amazing. This book is well written and truly a fast-paced thriller. I can say that this book isn't for everyone, as it contains some horrific crimes and gruesome crime scenes. But, if you can get past that, it is well worth reading. The book follows several different characters that help you experience this complicated story from many points of view - the pedophile, the murderer, the press, the police, the government, etc.
There are some characters that you know from the beginning are evil, but others ke This book is well written and truly a fast-paced thriller. There are some characters that you know from the beginning are evil, but others keep you wondering if they are really a "good guy" or "bad guy" right to the end.
It it interesting how all these characters, spread across 3 countries, are connected in ways you don't expect. While some of the subject matter in this book is difficult to read, what's more disturbing is that these crimes are happening in the real world. It really brings awareness to how widespread and "high up" this issue goes. The title "The Hack" is very appropriate as it actually applies to this story in 3 different ways - the computer hack where information is stolen from the CIA, the article that makes it public knowledge, and the murder itself.
These 3 hacks together lead to a fascinating story. I received a free review copy of this book directly from the author, but my honest opinion is completely voluntary. Feb 03, Walter Scott rated it it was amazing. Confronting the evil of human trafficking Kate and Johnny — siblings — are two young innocents who find themselves targeted by men who are wealthy, powerful, and privileged, and who will stop at nothing to keep their vile secret.
The issue at the core of this novel — human trafficking - is actually present in the world of today. It is an intimidating story to read, as it puts on the reader the burden of considering what they would do about it, and in the process, when presented with finding a solu Confronting the evil of human trafficking Kate and Johnny — siblings — are two young innocents who find themselves targeted by men who are wealthy, powerful, and privileged, and who will stop at nothing to keep their vile secret.
It is an intimidating story to read, as it puts on the reader the burden of considering what they would do about it, and in the process, when presented with finding a solution to the problem, be faced with the question of which would be the greater evil: As in previous Will Patching novels and I have read his first three the content is not for those with weak stomachs. The scenes of violence and abuse are not gratuitous.
Will Patching only presents enough detail to make his points. Well-developed characters and a plot with brisk pacing, all of which are skilfully executed in an atmosphere of fear and tension, are his trademark. May 18, Vicky Quenault rated it really liked it. The Hack by Will Patching is a well written story dealing with the dark subject of child pornography, sex trafficking and paedophilia.
This is not my normal reading material due to the subject being too dark and upsetting. However, Will Patching writes a very compelling story. He deals with the darkest parts in a way that gives you the information without dwelling on the details. He allows you to be immersed in the story without feeling sullied by the content. The characters in The Hack were crea The Hack by Will Patching is a well written story dealing with the dark subject of child pornography, sex trafficking and paedophilia.
The characters in The Hack were created by someone with an obviously good grasp on the complexities of human nature. He captured the differing levels of degradation of the human soul, from simply turning a blind eye to self delusional excuse-ism, to blatant narcissistic psychopathy. I would definitely recommend reading this book, and will be getting the rest of the series.
I received a complimentary copy from Voracious Readers in return for an honest review. Sep 01, Dawn rated it really liked it Shelves: This isn't a book for everyone, it deals with a lot of uncomfortable topics.
If you're ok with being uncomfortable and reading about topics that the larger media would like to brush under the rug, then this is the book for you. There are a lot of things I liked about the book. The book was fast paced and the story was well built. We got to see the story from the point of view of multiple characters, and though that can be a little confusing, it was really interesting.
Not only did you see the mu This isn't a book for everyone, it deals with a lot of uncomfortable topics. Not only did you see the murders and the police point of view, we also see other character's storylines. The story wouldn't have been affected if they weren't there, but it was a nice stylistic touch. This book does deal heavily with child molestation as well as the common occurrence of sex tourism in Thailand.
Some of the scenes are a little more graphic than others, however, they thankfully kept most of the scenes about the children very vague. We still got the idea of what was going on without the details. I received a copy of this book from the author via Voracious Readers Only.
Oct 19, Toni G rated it really liked it. I give it 4 stars because it's a great story. A dark, graphic page turner. But 3 stars because of the editing.
I strongly recommend better editing for 2 reasons. There were words missing and it was annoying to have to reread sentences to make sure I could understand what I was reading.
Unfortunately the author used UK English and slang for dialogue for American characters. Very jarring. Character developme I give it 4 stars because it's a great story. Character development for the mysterious Thai chief of police, two successful UK business men suspected of pedophia, the vigilante , and the chief editor of a UK tabloid are particularly good.
One complaint. The ending felt incomplete because there wasn't enough info or resolution regarding the vigilante. I'm going to read another book by the author. I won't say I enjoyed The Hact but it was very engaging. Child sexual abuse, kidnaping, graphic violence, and suspense. Be warned. Jun 30, Colin Rochford rated it really liked it. The Hack by Will Patching Under normal circumstances novels that appear to be heavy on teaching and social comment are an anathema to me, but this one is different.
Here we have an honest to goodness storyline with well-developed characters interesting plots and sub-plots, twists and turns which were enough to take my mind away from the nastiness inherent in the story, and allow me to enjoy the ride. That being said nothing detracted from the main theme of the book. Will has a brave approach to his The Hack by Will Patching Under normal circumstances novels that appear to be heavy on teaching and social comment are an anathema to me, but this one is different.
Will has a brave approach to his writing and I like that it is crisp, clear and accurate. Descriptions and imagery are good enough to draw you inside the minds of the characters and involve you with the story.
I liked it very much. Jan 04, Sue Olexa rated it it was amazing. By Starr Sackstein mssackstein and Connie Hamilton conniehamilton.
