"Behind all the noise and the numbers, we shouldn't forget that no one gets this big without amazing natural storytelling talent--which is what James Patterson has, in spades."―Lee Child
"It's no mystery why James Patterson is the world's most popular thriller writer: his uncanny skill in creating living, breathing characters we truly feel for and seamless, lightning-fast plots. I do this for a living, and he still manages to keep me guessing from the first to last page. Simply put: Nobody does it better."―Jeffrey Deaver
"James Patterson is The Boss. End of."―Ian Rankin

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.

I don't normally read true crime as I like a bit of distance between reality and my mayhem. This one, though.... the idea of it just would not leave me alone. My niece is only a year younger than Epstein's youngest victim listed in this book. That anyone could take these girls and do this to them.... it kills me. And then there's the fact that I had never heard of this case- nor had my family. How did it get kept so quiet? How was the time he served sufficient? What happened to his associates- and to the girls? There were so many questions. The authors took care, changing names and giving respect to the victims; and did their best not to sensationalize this case. Indeed, some reviewers even called it dry in parts, but I loved it. I liked that they added chapters in the victims (and Epstein's) point of view, so that you could better understand them and feel for them. I also liked that they added pieces of the police interviews. To me, this was the best way to do a story like this. I would give it a four star review. Four Stars
On the adult content scale... by the very nature of this book I would not hand it to a young teen. It isn't written for a young audience. There is language, sexual violence... I would give it a nine
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.
