A stunning and news-making biography detailing how America's Mayor, once beloved around the world, became a tragic figure, and the driving force behind Donald Trump's biggest scandals.Rudy Giuliani was the legendary prosecutor of Mafia bosses, corrupt politicians, and white-collar criminals. As mayor of New York City, he gained fame for conquering its crime problem and engineering a remarkable turnaround, garnering acclaim but also condemnation for his ruthless tactics, and a never-ending stream of marital scandals. He led the city through the September 11th attacks on the World Trade Center, earning worldwide respect for his compassionate leadership, and the title of America's Mayor. To much criticism, he parlayed that fame into stratospheric wealth, founding a consulting business catering to companies and foreign governments eager to associate with an international hero. In 2008, he ran for president, only to watch his White House ambitions collapse in a disastrous campaign. After struggling to reclaim his stature, and searching for business in shadowy corners of the world, he found his new calling in Donald Trump's presidential effort, beginning reluctantly but growing into his most loyal defender. After Trump's victory in 2016, Giuliani's increasingly erratic behavior sparked widespread ridicule, and he became the driving force behind scandals that led Trump to be impeached twice. He was widely derided for his sometimes comic efforts to prove election fraud in the 2020 campaign. By the end of Trump's presidency he was broke, his once-sterling reputation tarnished beyond recognition. In this revealing biography, Andrew Kirtzman pieces together Giuliani's rise and fall from hundreds of interviews with friends, family members, White House officials, business partners, and close confidants, some of whom have never gone on the record before. He reveals new information about Giuliani's role in the 2020 election debacle, his relationship with Trump, his troubled personal life, and much more. Giuliani contains explosive revelations, and answers the question that everyone has asked: What happened to Rudy Giuliani?
