Summary
"The definitive account of Bill Cosby's transition from revered father figure to convicted criminal, told by a veteran crime reporter and former senior writer for People magazine" -- From Amazon.com summary
Summary
An award-winning journalist provides a detailed account of the downfall of Bill Cosby, who was convicted of drugging and sexually assaulting a woman in early 2018, after being accused of the crime 13 years prior. In her debut book, Chasing Cosby, Egan shares her firsthand account of Cosby's run from justice. She tells us how Cosby planned and executed his crimes, and how Hollywood alliances and law enforcement knew what Cosby was doing but did nothing to stop him. A veteran crime reporter, Egan also explores the cultural and social issues that influenced the case, delving into the psychological calculations of a serial predator and into the psyche of a nation that fervently wanted to put their faith in the innocence of "American's Dad."
