The News of the World journalist who broke the prostitute story about Jeffrey Archer in 1986 has signed a deal to write a book about the rise and fall of the Murdoch empire, reports the Bookseller.
John Lisners, when he tired of doorstepping, retrained as a lawyer. But he can’t stay away from a hot story. He has worked for Rupert on three continents and knows the empire inside out. His publisher, John Blake, describes the book as “a human story, an affectionate portrait, and a story like something out of Shakespeare”.
Hmmmm… are we talking Macbeth, King Lear or Midsummer Night’s Dream?
