Ghislaine Maxwell has been charged with helping rich paedophile Jeffrey Epstein sexually exploit and abuse multiple minor girls – she denies all wrongdoing. This episode looks at the first monster in her life: her father, Robert Maxwell, a liar, a thief and a sadist. He named the yacht he fell from after her: The Lady Ghislaine. Did he form or, perhaps, deform her too?
