    Everyone’s heard of Ghislaine Maxwell, Jeffery Epstein’s alleged partner in crime. But there’s a shadowy figure who hangs above her who you likely don’t know: her father, media tycoon Robert Maxwell.

    His rise from nothing, to his success as a businessman, to his fall from the deck of his super yacht under mysterious circumstances, is something straight out of a crime novel. And his favorite daughter Ghislaine’s theory?: her father was murdered.

    From Somethin’ Else, makers of ‘The Immaculate Deception’ and ‘Faultline: Bush, Blair & Iraq’, hosted by Investigative journalist Tara Palmeri, ‘Power: The Maxwells’ is a seven part series on the incredible true story of a media mogul whose legacy is still being felt today and the family saga of Ghislaine, a millionaire daddy’s girl who became an accused sex trafficker and her brother, Kevin, who became Britain’s biggest personal bankrupt.

    'Power: The Maxwells’ tells the story of a family like no other - a rags to riches to rags again tale of power and greed. New episodes drop every Tuesday wherever you get your podcasts. We know we'll be listening and we hope you will, too.

    The late 1960s were a golden age of air travel - spacious legroom, glamorous flight attendants, delicious meals on every flight... and a rash of violent hijackings. Some were politically motivated, while others were fueled by greed. The most famous and mysterious hijacker of all took control of a 727 with nothing more than a black briefcase, a handwritten note, and a pair of sunglasses. He got his money, and his parachutes, then disappeared into the night, never to be heard from again. Did he die in the Washington wilderness? Or did he manage to make an escape with his bag of cash?
