The little girl cherished by her father, press magnate Robert Maxwell who drowned under mysterious circumstances, has always been drawn towards powerful men. Powerful men she now has to mourn. Ghislaine Maxwell first adored her tyrannical father, then Jeffrey Epstein, accused of sexual assault and prostitution of minors. To Epstein, she had given everything: her heart, her body and her formidable address book. To keep their passion alive, she would offer him sex with others, exploiting the naivety of blooming young girls. Today, she is accused of being an accomplice in sexual assaults, exploitation and human trafficking. Like an American version of the marquise of Merteuil in Chloderlos de Laclos’ Dangerous Liaisons, she always thought to be untouchable, especially in a country where money can buy you protection from everything.
After Epstein’s death, she becomes infamous for being the devil’s associate. The “Me Too” movement asks for financial reparation, others want her to be silent. Arrested in the summer of 2020, she claims to be innocent. Miss Maxwell knows all too well that she will have to face pressure and threats. For years, she has seen too many things and learned the secrets of the most powerful people on the planet…
In this riveting biography, Laurence Haïm, who covered the Epstein scandal for the television channel CBS news, unveils the different lives and faces of Ghislaine Maxwell while drawing the broader picture of an America of the Rich where the 1% live completely above the law.
The rich and detailed information as well as the first person narration allows us to follow the journey of Ghislaine Maxwell from the inside. Is she a victim in love or a Machiavellian manipulator? It is up to us to find out…
