In this newly updated edition of the "meticulous and devastating" (Associated Press) account of violence and espionage that spent months on the New York Times Bestsellers list, Ronan Farrow exposes serial abusers and a cabal of powerful interests hell-bent on covering up the truth, at any cost - from Hollywood to Washington and beyond.


In 2017, a routine network television investigation led to a story only whispered about: one of Hollywood's most power­ful producers was a predator, protected by fear, wealth, and a conspiracy of silence. As Farrow drew closer to the truth, shadowy operatives, from high-priced lawyers to elite war-hardened spies, mounted a secret campaign of intimidation, threatening his career, following his every move, and weaponizing an account of abuse in his own family. This is the untold story of the exotic tactics of surveillance and intimidation deployed by wealthy and connected men to threaten journalists, evade accountability, and silence victims of abuse. And it's the story of the women who risked everything to expose the truth and spark a global movement

    Extremely well done! Thought I knew the whole story and would be bored, but instead found it riveting. Also, Farrow comes across as extremely intelligent and highly adorable.
  • Heartbreaking but eye opening.

    Excellent and gut wrenching. Details the spectacular failure of those who serve in positions meant to protect, but instead, abuse. This book is a tough read at times, but Ronan approaches the victims stories with layers of thoughtfulness and respect. I respect the hell out of this man for shinning a light in dark corners (along with all the other people who did the same, and are mentioned in this book). It is a book everyone must read.

    Simply a smart, literate, harrowing account of the obstacles placed by men in power, every step of the way, towards an ugly truth too long ignored. Couldn’t put it down.

    Stellar. Moving. Unforgettable. Courageous. Inspiring. Therapeutic. Gratefulness. Authentic. Compassion. Educational. Fair. I could not put this down. iBook was an important assist due to so many characters, and some new vocabulary. iBook was the best way to read this! I talked to everyone about it. I did discourage my DH from reading it as he would not stomach some of it. He does better with fictional violence. Not that this was too medical or morbid. Factual and compassionate somehow. Almost every modern woman can empathize. So much courage. Thank you Ronan and every one who made this back happen. PS Jonathon, Ronan is a keeper. As are you. :-)
