The shocking true crime story behind billionaire Jeffrey Epstein's sex pyramid scheme ( Miami Herald ) and the police investigation that finally brought him to justice, from the world's most popular thriller writer, James Patterson. Jeffrey Epstein rose from humble origins to the rarefied heights of New York City's financial elite. A college dropout with an instinct for both numbers and people, Epstein amassed his wealth through a combination of access and skill. But even after he had it all, Epstein wanted more. And that persistent desire-especially for young girls-led to his stunning fall from grace. From the girls he employed as masseuses to the cops investigating the appalling charges against him, Filthy Rich examines the dark side of a man that scandalized one of America's richest communities. This explosive true story is a riveting account of wealth, power and the influence they bring to the American justice system.
