Was DSK being bugged? Was someone trying to set him up? What happened to DSK's phones? Lots of questions, but Epstein does a great job of laying out what we know and what we don't know about the whole DSK situation. What is really cool about this being an eBook is that there are links to the surveillance videos right in the book.
At first I was hesitant to purchase, thinking this was just going to be about what happened between DSK and the maid - but it is much more expansive and interesting than that one encounter. I used to think these things only happened in the movies, but not anymore!
I highly recommend Three Days in May - The DSK Thriller.
I would read him on any subject. His look into the new landscape of politics, subterfuge, and who and what shapes the biggest choices made in Hollywood and politics should be emulated.
Such means of surveillance -- available to those in power, but not to the rest of us -- make those in power more powerful, harder to unseat. However, Epstein's book also shows the effect of lower-tech new recording devices, especially CCTV recordings, cell phone records, and key-entry logs. They make it harder to lie. DSK's accuser, Nafissatou Diallo, was lying, no doubt. The district attorney's office got to "Version 3' of her story before giving up. The discrepancies between what she said happened and the key-entry records reveal her lies beyond doubt. The new recording devices also pull two people into the story who otherwise might have remained out of it: a security guard and the head engineer at the hotel, who went into a private loading-dock area and did a kind of victory dance shortly after 911 was called.Read more ›
