"In May 2008, Florida-based victims' rights attorney Bradley Edwards was 32 years old and had just started his own law firm when a young woman named Courtney Wild came to see him. She told a shocking story of having been sexually coerced at the age of 14 by a wealthy man in Palm Beach named Jeffrey Epstein. Edwards, who had never heard of Epstein, had no idea that this moment would change the course of his life. Over the next 10 years, Edwards devoted himself to bringing Epstein to justice, and came close to losing everything in the process. Edwards tracked down and represented more than 20 of Epstein's victims, shined a light on his shadowy network of accomplices, and illuminated the scope of his sexually-exploitative organization, which reached into the highest levels of American society. In this tell-all book, Edwards gives his riveting, blow-by-blow account of battling Epstein on behalf of his clients through private depositions and public law suits, and provides the stunning, secret details that he's never been able to share before. He explains how he tracked Epstein's criminal enterprise from Florida, to New York, to Europe, to a Caribbean island, and in the process, became the one person Epstein most feared could take him down. Epstein and his cadre of high-priced lawyers were able to manipulate the FBI and the Justice Department, but despite making real-life threats and attempting plots straight out of a spy movie, they couldn't stop Edwards, his small team of committed lawyers, and most of all the victims, who were dead-set on seeing their abuser finally put behind bars. This is the definitive account of the Epstein saga, personally told by the gutsy lawyer who took on one of the most brazen sexual criminals in the history of our country, and exposed the corrupt system that let him get away with it for far too long"-- Provided by publisher.
