Filthy Rich: A Powerful Billionaire, the Sex Scandal that Undid Him, and All the Justice that Money Can Buy: The Shocking True Story of Jeffrey Epstein (Audiobook)
Audiobook – Unabridged – Narrated by Jason Culp
A shocking true-crime tale of money, power, and sex from the world’s most popular thriller writer. 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 who — at least so far — got away.
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.
Author James Patterson on Jeffrey Epstein: “This is a story about justice breaking down”
“This story is about justice breaking down, the justice system breaking down and about how could we since 2006 not pay attention to this story,” said Patterson, the author of the 2016 book “Filthy Rich: The Billionaire’s Sex Scandal – The Shocking True Story of Jeffrey Epstein.”
“What got me into this was a lot of people had been so hurt by the original situation in 2006, when he kinda got off for 13 months,” Patterson said, referring to the non-prosecution agreement Epstein signed for his crimes in 2008.
“When you see the pattern that goes from 2003 or so or maybe earlier … that’s a long time to be obsessed with young girls,” Patterson said. “It is an obsession and it is a sickness.”
Patterson worked with collaborator Tim Malloy on the book, and lived in the same Palm Beach neighborhood as Epstein before and during the writing. Even after investigating Epstein, Patterson still seemed stunned by what he uncovered.
“It’s so bizarre and insane that somebody would be bringing these young girls to their house, sometimes a couple times a day. Nobody would believe this.”
