Winner of the 2013 Walkey book award:
Packer, Murdoch and the Ultimate Revenge
An incisive, hard-hitting and utterly compelling exposé of media, powerful mates and multimillion-dollar deals.
With exclusive and unprecedented access to both Murdoch and Packer, as well as an extraordinary line-up of Australian business leaders and influential powerbrokers, Killing Fairfax is a powerful insiders’ story of the deals, the power plays and the machinations behind the decline of the influential media company Fairfax, publisher of The Sydney Morning Herald, The Age And The Australian Financial Review.
A riveting, never-before-told tale of Shakespearean dimensions, Killing Fairfax is a riveting account of corporate ambition and arrogance; fathers and sons; old media and new media; and brutal business dealings.
“The first chapter of KILLING FAIRFAX by Pam Williams reads like a thriller. I highly recommend it.” – Leigh Sales, Anchor of ABC1 7:30
