Glenn Greenwald, the reporter at The Guardian who broke the story of NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, has received a book deal.

According to publisher Metropolitan Books, an imprint of Henry Holt, the book will "contain new revelations exposing the extraordinary cooperation of private industry and the far-reaching consequences of the government’s program, both domestically and abroad."

Greenwald, who has covered cyber security issues for nearly a decade, has had rare access to the NSA leaker; he released classified documents and interviewed Snowden before he fled the U.S. Even now, details surrounding the NSA's expansive government surveillance program continue to emerge: Greenwald recently told the AP that Snowden has retained "literally thousands" of documents that contain the entire blueprint of the NSA.

The book will be Greenwald's fifth and is due out March 2014.
