On 2 July 2020, multi-millionaire Ghislaine Maxwell - Jeffrey Epstein's former lover and a close friend of Prince Andrew's and ex-President Donald Trump's - was arrested in new Hampshire on charges relating to the serial abuse of underage girls by the billionaire Jeffrey Epstein. After a year-long hunt for her by lawyers and the world media and, as it turned out, the FBI, she became one of the most recognisable fugitives around the world. Who was she and how did she fall so far from grace? How did she amass her fortune of over 30 million after being next to penniless following the death of her father? This is the first investigation based on new sources that have become available since her arrest.
