Patterson takes on sordid Jeffrey Epstein case in 'Filthy Rich'
Key Excerpts from Article on Website of USA Today

James Patterson, that human fiction factory, has churned out another book, only this time its a real-life whodunit. Or perhaps, [this book] is more of a why-did-he-get-off-so-lightly? Jeffrey Epstein ... is, indeed, filthy rich. One supposition on how he got so, based on unnamed sources in "Filthy Rich," is that he crafted tax-avoidance schemes for filthy rich clients. Epstein hung out with a diverse cast of characters, among them Prince Andrew, Stephen Hawking and bra-billionaire Les Wexner. He also spent time with impecunious teenage girls who were engaged to massage him. Mary (not her real name) ... was 14 when she was invited into Epsteins lair. The testimony of Epsteins masseuses to police meanders from soft porn to more graphic fare and goes on page after page. Most of the women who told their stories to the police never got to testify in the half-hearted (at best) prosecution of Epstein, including Alison, who claimed that she had been raped. Backed by a dream team of lawyers - among them Alan Dershowitz (who defended O.J. Simpson and Claus von Blow) and Ken Starr (whose investigation of Bill Clintons affair with Monica Lewinsky led to his impeachment) - Epstein pleaded guilty to state felony offenses for solicitation of prostitution and the procurement of minors for prostitution. By doing so Epstein avoided the possibility of facing much more serious charges. Epstein received an 18-month sentence, but served barely a year.

Note: Read more about the child sex trafficking ring Epstein allegedly operated. Watch an excellent segment by Australia's "60-Minutes" team "Spies, Lords and Predators" on a pedophile ring in the UK which leads to the highest levels of government. A second suppressed documentary, "Conspiracy of Silence," goes even deeper into this topic in the US.
