A shocking true crime tale of money, power, and sex from the world's #1 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 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.
