In this instant New York Times bestselling account of violence and espionage, Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter Ronan Farrow exposes serial abusers and a cabal of powerful interests hell-bent on covering up the truth, at any cost.

In 2017, a routine network television investigation led Ronan Farrow to a story only whispered about: one of Hollywood's most powerful producers was a predator, protected by fear, wealth, and a conspiracy of silence. As Farrow drew closer to the truth, shadowy operatives, from high-priced lawyers to elite war-hardened spies, mounted a secret campaign of intimidation, threatening his career, following his every move, and weaponizing an account of abuse in his own family.

All the while, Farrow and his producer faced a degree of resistance they could not explain -- until now. And a trail of clues revealed corruption and cover-ups from Hollywood to Washington and beyond.

This is the untold story of the exotic tactics of surveillance and intimidation deployed by wealthy and connected men to threaten journalists, evade accountability, and silence victims of abuse. And it's the story of the women who risked everything to expose the truth and spark a global movement.

Both a spy thriller and a meticulous work of investigative journalism, Catch and Kill breaks devastating new stories about the rampant abuse of power and sheds far-reaching light on investigations that shook our culture.




Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“As a novel, it would be a page-turner. As a reported piece of nonfiction, it’s terrifying.” Time
“Monumental, haunting…In this self-narrated account, he describes the lengths he and his fellow reporters went to in order to reveal Weinstein’s hideous secret—and the power of the women who chose to take a stand.” Elle (audio review)
“[The] best (and most horrifying) spy thriller of the year…He weaves a breathless narrative as compelling as it is disturbing.” Entertainment Weekly
“The book details the extraordinary lengths some of the world’s most powerful people, including Harvey Weinstein, go to protect themselves: silencing their accusers, intimidating journalists, and more.” New York TImes Book Review
“Farrow’s dark memoir of the era in which he helped unearth the abuses of Harvey Weinstein unfolds like a classic noir.” Washington Post
“A humdinger of a story… a nuanced appreciation of how women are smeared and discredited…Combines righteous anger, gossip and comedy." The Times (London)
“Read this book…Farrow’s greatest success was to listen, believe and act, even at his own peril." Los Angeles Times
Catch and Kill is exhaustively reported...and compulsively readable, with nearly every page revealing a provocative detail about a household name in media or entertainment. Rolling Stone
"A breathtakingly dogged piece of reporting, in the face of extraordinary opposition." The Guardian (London)
