'Absorbing . . . a celebration of journalism and hacking being used to unmask the bad guys' - Guardian

Pegasus is widely regarded as the most powerful cyber-surveillance system on the market - available to any government that can afford its multimillion-dollar price tag. The system's creator, the NSO group, a private corporation headquartered in Israel, boasts about its ability to thwart terrorists and criminals: 'Thousands of people in Europe owe their lives to hundreds of our company employees', they declared in 2019. That may be true - but the Pegasus system doesn't just catch bad guys.

Pegasus has been used by repressive regimes to spy on thousands of innocent people around the world: heads of state, diplomats, human rights defenders, lawyers, political opponents, and journalists. Virtually undetectable, the system can track a person's daily movement in real time, gain control of the device's microphones and cameras at will, and capture all videos, photos, emails, texts, and passwords - encrypted or not. Its full reach is not even known.

This is the gripping story of how Pegasus was uncovered, written by Laurent Richard and Sandrine Rigaud, the two intrepid reporters who revealed the scandal in collaboration with an international consortium of journalists. They received a leaked list of 50,000 mobile phone numbers, but they needed to prove NSO's involvement. After a dangerous and secretive investigation spanning the globe, their findings shook the world. Tense and compelling, Pegasus reveals how thousands of lives have been turned upside down by this unprecedented threat, and exposes the chilling new ways governments and corporations are laying waste to human rights - and silencing innocent citizens.
