"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.
No serious attempt is made to examine the failed legal system and many of those players are simply referred to as a "judge" or a "prosecutor" but with no surnames. Also a very thin list of other visitors to Orgy Island. Feels as if the writers are protecting many who participated in this horrible story. No mention of Epstein's camera system that taped some famous people and no mention that the tapes most likely still exist. No mention of Judges who made slap-on-the-wrist decisions or sometimes just prevented a plaintiff from getting access to information they were entitled to to win their cases. No explanation of the political connections many of these people held and hold to this day.
And no index because by not using people's surnames there would be little to put there. Just feels like a thrown together book to try to imply that Trump and not WJC was a principal player. Only mention one flight WJC made with Epstein when 26 are known to have been made. Conversely Trump made not one but in this book no photos of WJC but two of Trump in adult, social activities. 22 phone numbers in Epstein's phone book go unmentioned while that same book showed only one for Trump.
Sort of subtle and political distortion of the real story where the powerful and guilty parties are either not even mentioned or if so, barely.
Hope someday a serious writer will buckle down and not use fillers and not protect people who should be exposed and show all of us how a very perturbed human being who damaged so many young girls was able to buy his way out of the punishment any ordinary citizen would have faced for the crimes committed.
Waste of money. Hold out for a better book which at some point is bound to surface.
(Forgive any errors but this box will not permit me to re-read what I wrote because it doesn't scroll. Thus no editing allowed.)
I wasn't familiar with Jeff Epstein's case so I'm still reeling from all that went on and continues today. Funny that Ken Starr was part of his defense team, since he's recently gone through the Baylor debacle (I live in Waco and we hear it all the time).
I definitely recommend reading this.
