Beschreibung

In a dramatic account of violence and espionage, Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter Ronan Farrow exposes serial abusers and a cabal of powerful interests hell-bent on covering up the truth, at any cost.

In 2017, a routine network television investigation led Ronan Farrow 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.

All the while, Farrow and his producer faced a degree of resistance that could not be explained - until now. And a trail of clues revealed corruption and cover-ups from Hollywood, to Washington, and beyond.

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.

Both a spy thriller and a meticulous work of investigative journalism, Catch and Kill breaks devastating new stories about the rampant abuse of power - and sheds far-reaching light on investigations that shook the culture.

Ronan Farrow is a contributing writer to the
New Yorker, where his investigative reporting has won the Pulitzer Prize for public service, the National Magazine Award and the George Polk Award, among other honors.

This true story about exposing Harvey Weinstein and all of those involved covering for him reads like a spy novel. It keeps you on the edge of your seat cover to cover. A masterpiece of investigative journalism. ...and shocking! The lengths of those in power are willing to go to stay there and - worst of all - the belittling and discrediting of sexual abuse victims to the point of threatening them if they come forward. No wonder women often don’t report...
