Vanity Fair appears to be the first out of the gate to produce such an offering, with "Rupert Murdoch: The Master Mogul of Fleet Street," described in a press released as "a probing, behind-the-scenes, no-holds-barred look at the embattled News Corp. chairman whose media empire is straining under the pressure of a growing phone-hacking scandal." The title hit the Amazon Kindle and Barnes & Noble Nook stores today for $3.99.

"Tracing the rise of the ultimate media baron and illuminating the roots of his current predicament, 'Rupert Murdoch: The Master Mogul of Fleet Street,' paints a truly intimate portrait of Murdoch from his days commanding tabloids on London's Fleet Street to his cunning maneuvers on Wall Street, from his acquisition of 20th Century Fox to his launch of Fox News," the release states.
