A Florida lawyer who represented the victims of sex offender Jeffrey Epstein will tell his story in a new book.
Gallery Books, a division of Simon Schuster, will publish Relentless Pursuit: My Fight for the Victims of Jeffrey Epstein by victims’ rights attorney Bradley J. Edwards, who represented more than 20 women who accused Epstein of sexual abuse.
The publisher describes the book as “the definitive story of the case against Jeffrey Epstein and the corrupt system that supported him.”
“Edwards gives his riveting, blow-by-blow account of battling Epstein on behalf of his clients and provides stunning details never shared before,” Gallery said. “He explains how he tracked Epstein's criminal enterprise from Florida, to New York, to Europe, to a Caribbean island, and, in the process, became the one person Epstein most feared could take him down.”
Epstein was convicted of soliciting an underage sex worker in 2008, and served just a year in prison, much of it on work release. In 2019, federal prosecutors charged him with sex trafficking; he was found hanged to death in his jail cell a month after his arrest. His death was ruled a suicide.
Relentless Pursuit, Edwards’ first book, is slated for publication on March 31.
