The Wizard of Lies: Inside the Madoff Ponzi Scheme by Diana Henriques
Bernie Madoff exposed:
I could not find any evidence at all that Ruth, Mark or Andrew Madoff knew about Madoff’s crime until his confession in his study on Dec. 10, 2008. Indeed, there are compelling reasons to conclude that they did not know, which I lay out in my book.
For example, consider that confessional in the study: if his wife and sons are his accomplices, what should have happened next? They should have packed their bags, emptied the bank account, gassed up the private jet and fled to some distant spot without an extradition treaty. They had the means and, if they were Madoff’s accomplices, the motive to flee – and none of them did. His brother has been on notice for more than two years that he is the subject of a criminal investigation, but to date, no charges have been brought against him.
