I read this to study style and format for a non-fiction court/trial subject matter and was not disappointed. Researched and written with John Connolly, an investigative reporter, and Tim Malloy, print and television journalist, James Patterson turned out yet again an interesting and page-turning book.
Chapters remain short 2 — 4 pages in this 287 page book, including Coda and Epilogue.
The subject is Jeffery Epstein, convicted in 2008, for soliciting an underage girl for prostitution. He serves 13 months of an 18 month sentence in the Palm Beach County Central Detention Center [the Stockade]. Wearing an ankle bracelet Epstein has "work release" privileges and allowed to leave prison grounds six days a week to go to his attorney's office, his office, or to his home on El Brillo Way in Palm Beach.
In chapter's 32—33, Donald Trump bars Epstein from Mar-a-Lago when a member of the posh private resort complains to Trump his young daughter has been invited to Epstein's house, about two miles from the twenty acre resort. She goes, then complains to her father Epstein tries to get her to undress.
Patterson writes, "...in no uncertain terms [Trump] told Epstein that he was barred from Mar-a-Lago" and Trump severs all ties with him.
Epstein caters to ex-presidents [Clinton]; international politicians, royalty [Prince Andrew]; CEOs, Hollywood moguls ... you get the picture. His parties are infamous. His penchant for young girls, 14 and up, remains hidden from public scrutiny. The exceptions are those Eyes Wide Shut elite who pander along with his pedophile whims.
Patterson, Connolly and Malloy have taken a sensitive subject and presented it with taste, in an interesting format in the Patterson drama to keep you turning the pages.

MOTHERS AGAINST SEXUAL ABUSE
On the whole, this is a book incredibly important for the well being of our children, and to bare down on the pricks of this case who call themselves lawyers -- they enabled an extremely successful, almost industrial-level, serial child rapist.
Why? Because Epstein was Filthy Rich. In American Justice, money talks. And in Epstein's case, it screamed.
Hats off to Patterson for walking on the wild side of non-fiction. The world of sane, healthy people, and all parents, owe him and the others a lot of gratitude for getting this story out to the public. Child Sex Trafficking is the scourge of the 1%. Epstein over here, and Savile across the Pond, each will become doors to this dark, foul world of sexual parasites feeding on the most vulnerable, just like the Vatican became a symbol for the same in the church. Hooyah.
Acosta is big in the news. Read this book to get the details.
Be aware that Patterson is a big friend of Bill Clinton.
And, ask yourself this: WHY DID PATTERSON NOT WRITE ABOUT CYRUS VANCE trying to get his sex offender status reduced? That was in 2011.
Top reviews from other countries
Filthy Rich is an in-depth look at who the man was, where he came from and how he got to be as powerful as he was at the time of arrest. With short, to the point chapters, this no frills book really does get straight to the point and doesn’t quibble with speculation or drama.
True crime is not really a genre that I am au fait with however, if they were all written as well as Filthy Rich was written then I would be reading much much more.
