The book Epstein: Dead Men Tell No Tales is released, in which former Israeli spy Ari Ben-Menashe reveals more about the connection between Robert Maxwell, Jeffrey Epstein, and the Intelligence community.

Ben-Menashe first went public with Maxwell’s role as a Mossad agent in 1991, just before Maxwell’s death. In Dead Men, he says that he was the Israeli “handler” for both Epstein and Maxwell.

Epstein’s role as an Intelligence agent was leaked earlier this year by Vicky Ward. Earlier court documents allege that Epstein received his initial financing for his sex trafficking operation from Maxwell, who also worked for Russian mafia leader Semion Mogilevich.

Ben-Menashe said Epstein and his longtime girlfriend Ghislaine Maxwell ran a “honey trap” to lure powerful men by arranging sex with young girls and then blackmailing them with hidden-camera videos. Epstein and Maxwell “would just blackmail people like that,” Ben-Menashe told the book’s authors.

He also claims to have been the Mossad handler for Ghislaine’s father, Robert Maxwell, who died in 1991. Maxwell was a publishing magnate who later won a seat in the British Parliament. Later, he was accused of misdirecting millions of pounds from his own company’s pension funds.


Epstein: Dead Men Tell No Tales was written by Dylan Howard, Melissa Cronin, and James Robertson.
