Overview

A shocking true crime tale of money, power, and sex from the world's most popular thriller writer.

Jeffrey Epstein rose from humble origins to the rarefied heights of New York City's financial 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. And that unceasing desire--especially a taste for young girls--resulted in his stunning fall from grace. From Epstein himself, to the girls he employed as masseuses at his home, to the cops investigating the appalling charges against him, FILTHY RICH examines all sides of a case that scandalized one of America's richest communities. An explosive true story, FILTHY RICH is a riveting account of wealth, power and the influence they bring to bear on the American justice system.

So timely, a few additional chapter's, or, when ths is all over a follow up book. It's amazing this book could not open the case earlier; the author clearly states it is something to look into. Everyine wants to bury their heads. Well whata farce the "Me-Too" movement is. American women screech for their rights, but radio silence when it comes to children. Shame on you. Great book. Great peice of history.

I enjoyed the book. Narration was a little monotone but not terrible by any means.

Don\'t buy this book is like many others wait for it to be solved and on Biography or History Channel; otherwise, it is a cliff notes version of palm beach notes, which went nowhere.

This book wasn\'t good, or bad, however it was a bit tedious to listen. It was the only audio book I had at the time while I was on a 8 hr. driving trip.
