John Sweeny Hunting Ghislaine

Investigative journalist John Sweeney reveals the dark and disturbing true story of Ghislaine Maxwell, tracing her path from growing up as the daughter of Robert Maxwell to her association with financier and convicted sex-offender Jeffrey Epstein.

Once upon a time there was a beautiful princess who suffered a tragedy, the death of her father, a war hero, a philanthropist, a good man, in suspicious circumstances. She fled to New York where she made a new life with a brilliant mathematician. Her name is Ghislaine Maxwell and her lover was Jeffrey Epstein. Through Jeffrey, and her family name, Ghislaine became friends with some of the most powerful people on earth, ex-President Bill Clinton and President-to-be 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 sadist, a war criminal, a monster. His cruelty deformed Ghislaine Maxwell long before she met Jeffrey Epstein. Her one-time lover was convicted for being a paedophile. So Ghislaine's 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.
