Both as chief reporter and news editor for nearly twenty years at the now defunct News of the World, Neville Thurlbeck is uniquely placed to give an insider's view of life on the paper. Thurlbeck served up some of the most famous, memorable and notorious headlines in the paper's existence; headlines that lit up the world of tabloid journalism and included names such as David Beckham, Jeffrey Archer, Fred and Rose West, Gordon Brown and Robin Cook, among many others. In Tabloid Secrets, he reveals for the very first time how he broke the award-winning stories which thrilled, excited and shocked the nation, and secured the paper up to fifteen million readers every week. His journalism led him into encounters with Cabinet ministers, rent boys, sports stars, serial killers, drug lords and on one occasion a devil-worshipping police officer. Thurlbeck's undercover, investigative work is revealed in great detail, with the methods and subterfuge explained. It also describes how the reporter was recruited to MI5, the characters he met and the type of work he carried out there. Ultimately, Tabloid Secrets is a journey through a world which has vanished for good, by the best-known reporter of recent times. It is a vivid, surprising and wildly entertaining insider account of a Fleet Street which is suddenly no more.… (more)
