With all the errors and perversities of this case, the public was left wondering was Dominique Strauss-Kahn guilty or innocent? John Solomon gets past the headlines to tell the real story of how vanity, ambition and media exposure played a more important role than facts, evidence and law in the unravelling the case. Solomon's dramatic account depicts a media circus, with the egos of prosecutors supplanting core values of justice and biased headlines creating far-reaching consequences - ultimately instigating such powerful initial judgements in the court of public opinion that a court of law never got the opportunity to hear the case at all. A searing indictment of the American jurisprudence system at the dawn of the twenty-first century, "DSK: Anatomy of a Scandal" lays out all the facts good and bad, pro and con, so that finally the public can judge what happened in the one of the most fascinating criminal cases of the last decade.
