Behind the walls of the house that lies built
After the news broke of Bernie Madoff's arrest on
December 11, 2008, the facts were hard to grasp. Madoff
claimed to have stolen fifty billion dollars; the sum seemed
impossibly large. But of course it wasn't impossible. And
that was only the beginning of the story.
investigative correspondent for ABC News, Brian Ross has
been on the front lines of the Madoff scandal since the
beginning. Throughout the course of his investigation, he
and his team have achieved unequaled access to the
investigators working to unravel Madoff's fraud, and have
succeeded in cultivating sources deep within the walls of
Bernard L. Madoff Investment Securities that no other
journalist has reached. Ross was even able to obtain a copy
of the contents of Madoff's "little black book."
result is an unparalleled, fly-on-the-wall view of a life of
corrupted luxury and outrageous lies.
chronicles the lavish lifestyle that Bernie and his
high-school sweetheart, Ruth, enjoyed as the result of his
ill-gotten gains and the bone-deep deceit that shocked the
world with its sheer audacity. He details the layers of
Madoff's scheme--from money men across the country who made
millions convincing clients to entrust their wealth to
Madoff, to the fabricated stock trades and false quarterly
statements that fooled his victims, many of whom lost their
savings, their homes, some of them even their lives, in the
wake of Madoff's betrayal.
This is a true-crime
drama of Shakespearean proportions, built upon the up-close
investigative skills of one of our most respected
journalists. The Madoff Chronicles is a vivid and
chilling look behind the gilded doors of the greatest
financial fraud in history.
