Summary
"Bill Cosby's career as a sweater-wearing, wholesome TV dad came to a stunning end when he was convicted of drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand. The mounting allegations -- more than sixty women have accused him of similar crimes -- and ultimate conviction were a shock to Americans, who wanted to cleave to their image of Cosby as a pudding-pop hero. Former People magazine senior writer Nicki Weisensee Egan was the first reporter to investigate Constand's allegations in 2005, when she covered the case for the Philadelphia Daily News. Other news organizations looked away, but Egan doggedly investigated the case, developing ties with entrenched sources and discovering incriminating details that would ultimately come to influence the prosecution. In Chasing Cosby, Egan shares her firsthand account of Cosby's thirteen-year run from justice. She reveals how Cosby planned and executed his crimes, and how Hollywood alliances and law enforcement knew of Cosby's crimes and remained silent. She explores the 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.'"--
