The phone hacking scandal that closed News of the World was big, that was just the tip of the iceberg. At the bottom of that iceberg of 'dark arts' - hacking, burglary, bugging, and bribing bent cops - is the body of Daniel Morgan.

It’s been described by an Assistant Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police as “one of the most disgraceful episodes in the entire history of the Metropolitan Police Service.”

Over the three decades since Daniel was killed, five failed police investigations and an ongoing panel inquiry, his has become the most investigated murder in British history.

The story moves from back streets of London, through the highest echelons of Scotland Yard, to the offices of Rupert Murdoch's best selling newspapers, to the doors of Number Ten Downing Street.

Don’t Listen To The Bad Reviews!

I’m honestly surprised by how harsh some of the reviews are. I read through several and was almost deterred from listening, but ultimately decided to give it a go. This podcast is well researched, organized, and eloquently delivered. I’ve had to stop listening to other podcasts with obnoxious music that is distracting and misplaced, and this is not one of them. I also don’t find it difficult to understand any of the various English accents included...and I’m American. I also think the narrator has a soothing voice that is not stagnant or dull. Ignore other reviews and listen! It’s an intriguing case with so many layers, I’m hooked!

Solid Podcast, Deep Research

Season one is an incredible story, with so many twists and turns you won't see them coming. Season 2 is geared to sell a book, however the added facts they have uncovered since season 1 makes it worth the listen. Overall, great research, solid voiceover by Peter Jukes and I'm just so sorry for what the Morgan family has had to endure for the past 30 years. Lastly - Thumbs up to Hugh Grant for his financial support of this podcast.

Soundtrack

Might be a good story if the narrative was not overrun by the soundtrack. I’ll see if I can bear it in episode 2.
