And that unceasing desire -- especially a taste for young girls -- resulted in his stunning fall from grace.

Summary

Summary

You've read the Jeffrey Epstein headlines, now get the full story. The world's bestselling author, James Patterson, has written the definitive book on the billionaire pedophile at the center of the newly unsealed federal sex crimes case.
Jeffrey Epstein rose from humble origins into the New York City and Palm Beach elite. A college dropout with an instinct for numbers -- and for people -- Epstein amassed his wealth through a combination of access and skill. But even after he had it all, Epstein wanted more. That unceasing desire -- and especially a taste for underage girls --resulted in sexual-abuse charges, to which he pleaded guilty and received a shockingly lenient sentence.
Included here are police interviews with girls who have alleged sexual abuse by Epstein, as well as details of the investigation against him.

Publisher's Weekly Review

The picture painted of Jeffrey Epstein-and the abuse and miscarriages of justice-in this white-collar crime account will haunt listeners. The authors stick with evidence they uncovered rather than delving too deep into whys and wherefores. The story covers Epstein's upbringing, financial exploits, extravagant sexual misconduct involving the solicitation of underage girls (of which he was found guilty), and how he attempted to cover his tracks during the investigation and bypassed real punishment for his crimes. Culp reads with a deep, coarse voice that draws out the raw and malicious elements of this true crime tale, but can quickly alter his voice to convey the emotions in the quotes from victims. His pacing and emphasis draw out the tension and heighten the drama. A Little, Brown hardcover. (Oct.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
