Format: Kindle Edition
This is a fascinating look at the whole DSK situation. While the media focused on what happened with DSK and the maid and lost interest when the rape charges were dropped, there is much more to the DSK story. Epstein does an incredible job of examining all the evidence - security cameras from the hotel, card key log records, interviews and most impressively an interview with DSK himself!

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.

This ebook is an expanded version of Epstein's magazine article in the New York Review of Books including CCTV video of the important events at New York's Sofitel on May 14, 2011 leading to the downfall of Dominique Strauss Kahn. Epstein succinctly explains the timeline, explores all scenarios, delves deep into the gaps and convincingly raises the distinct probability that all that titillates has been skewered: to ruin the career of DSK, Le Lapin Chaud ("the hot rabbit"). On the eve of the French presidential election, the conspirators may have gone after the wrong man. One may surmise this is not the end of this fascinating story.

I am a HUGE fan of Epstein's other books (The Hollywood Economist 2.0: The Hidden Financial Reality Behind the Movies, The Rise and Fall of Diamonds, The Big Picture: Money and Power in Hollywood, and etc.) and his newest on the notorious Dominique Strauss-Kahn maid affair scandal is no different. Like the rest of his books and articles, it's meticulously researched, well-written, and far-reaching. Epstein is a journalist in the grandest, most modest, most impressive sense of the word.

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.

Nicholas Sarkozy must be kicking himself. Sometimes a bird in the bush is worth more than a bird in the hand. If only I'd waited... He struck too soon. If only he'd waited until Dominique Strauss-Kahn (DSK) became his main opponent and then created a DSK scandal. The opposition would not have had time to regroup. DSK was careless, creating opportunities for his opponents. Three Days in May makes clear that DSK was being monitored, presumably via his cell phones. A first-rate intelligence organization, says Epstein, can turn on your cell phone and listen to you. At one point a French journalist is given a transcript of a call that DSK made. How was this possible? the journalist asked. The answer given is that by freakish coincidence "DSK's speaker phone was accidentally left on while his line was somehow connected to a French phone that was legally under surveillance." Why the speaker phone should matter is not explained.

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.
