With unprecedented access to the surviving family members-wife Ruth, son Andrew and his fianc e Catherine Hooper-journalist Laurie Sandell reveals the personal details behind the headlines. How did Andrew and Mark, the sons who'd spent their lives believing in and building their own families around their father's business first learn of the massive deception? How does a wife, who adored her husband since they were teenagers, begin to understand the ramifications of his actions? The Madoffs were" a tight-knit-even claustrophobic-clan, sticking together through marriages, divorces, and illnesses. But the pressures of enduring the massive scandal push them to their breaking points, most of all son Mark, whose suicide is one of the many tragedies that grew in the wake of the scandal.

I loved this book & have been waiting for the story of the immediate family victims. It’s sad how many imposters live around us. Fascinating story.

I found this book very interesting to read. I finished it in just a few days. I guess when it is too good to be true, then it must be!

I wonder if his family just had a blind eye to what was really going on. Unfortunately, now everyone suffers.

Interesting book. I enjoyed this as well as Stephanie's book.
I kept an open mind and went with it and finished both.
Some great insight.
