Two Paris-based investigative reporters are working on a book, titled “Pegasus,” about the phone malware developed by Israel’s NSO Group, allegedly used by governments to monitor and sometimes attack journalists, human rights activists and lawyers, among others.

Authors Laurent Richard and Sandrine Rigaud run Forbidden Stories, a nonprofit journalism organization which issued an extensive report on the global scale of Pegasus last month.

“In the book they will reveal the full extent of this unprecedented surveillance operation through the stories of the people whose lives have been turned upside down by it, and takes readers behind the scenes of one of the most resounding investigations of the last 20 years,” publisher Henry Holt announces.

MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow is contributing a foreword to the book, which does not yet have a release date.
