FILE - October 2005 photo released by the British newspaper The Guardian in London, of journalist Nick Davies. Ever since he scored a once-in-a-lifetime scoop by uncovering the depths of the phone hacking scandal, people keep telling British journalist Nick Davies that they have even more secrets to tell. Davies _ who says he became a journalist because of the Watergate scandal that brought down U.S. President Richard Nixon _ says the hacking saga that has enveloped Britain's police, politicians and press may ultimately end with the imprisonment of some of the country's power elite.

The book by Davies is titled "Hack Attack: How the Truth Caught up with the World's Most Powerful Man" and is to published in the fall of 2012 by Chatto & Windus in Britain and Faber & Faber in the U.S.
Financial compensation wasn't disclosed.
Davies, who previously wrote "Flat Earth News," won't be the first out with a book. Labour MP Tom Watson has a deal with Penguin Press for a book to be published before the end of this year. It is being co-written with journalist Martin Hickman.
The scandal exploded earlier this month with revelations that journalists at the News of the World tabloid hacked the phone of a 13-year-old murder victim while police were still searching for her.
