HUNTING GHISLAINE tells the extraordinary, shocking story of Ghislaine Maxwell, the former partner of disgraced billionaire Jeffrey Epstein and the daughter of media baron Robert Maxwell.
Once upon a time there was a beautiful and clever princess who suffered a terrible tragedy, the death of her father, a war hero, a philanthropist, a good man, in suspicious circumstances. She survived, then fled to New York where she made a new life with a brilliant mathematician. Her name is Ghislaine Maxwell and his was Jeffrey Epstein. Through Jeffrey, and her family name, Ghislaine became friends with some of the most powerful people on earth, ex-Presidents Bill Clinton and Donald Trump and the second son of the Queen of England, Prince Andrew, the Duke of York.
But this is no fairy tale. HUNTING GHISLAINE sets out the other side of the story, and it's one of the darkest you will ever read.
Ghislaine's father, Robert Maxwell, was a monster, a war criminal, a bully, a fraud, and a sadist. His cruelty deformed Ghislaine Maxwell long before she met Jeffrey Epstein, who later was convicted for being a paedophile. And thus, her life has been spent serving not one monster but two.
In HUNTING GHISLAINE, legendary investigative journalist John Sweeney uncovers the truth behind this fairy tale story in reverse.
