PRIVATE INVESTIGATOR DANIEL MORGAN WAS MURDERED WITH AN AXE TO THE HEAD IN A PUB CAR PARK ON 10TH MARCH 1987.
Thirty years on, after five failed police investigations and an ongoing inquiry, Daniel's murder is now the most investigated in British history - yet it remains unsolved. Intrinsically connected to the murky relationship between press and police, Daniel's death can even be linked to the phone hacking scandal that closed the News of the World. A lawless and twisted timeline of bugging, bribing and bent cops leads you to the body of Daniel - but not the truth of how he died. Justice is hidden in a web of corruption and cover-ups not only in the press, but at the heart of the Met Police itself.
So if you haven't heard of this story, ask yourself, why?
Written by Daniel's brother Alastair, with investigative journalist Peter Jukes, Who Killed Daniel Morgan? uncovers fresh revelations, new evidence and the latest findings of 'one of the most disgraceful episodes in the entire history of the Metropolitan Police Service' (an Assistant Commissioner of the Met).
