NEW YORK (AP) — A Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter who helped bring the Panama Papers to light is working on a book about his findings.

Henry Holt and Company told The Associated Press on Wednesday that Jake Bernstein's "Secrecy World" will come out in 2017. According to Holt, Bernstein will offer "the first full picture" behind the millions of leaked records that show how the world's richest use shell companies and other tactics to avoid tax obligations.

Bernstein was a key part of the team assembled by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, which led the yearlong probe into the documents.

In a statement issued through Holt, Bernstein said, "The Panama Papers herald a new dawn of collaborative journalism whose impact is only beginning."
