As featured on 60 Minutes, Dateline, Inside Edition, and 48 Hours, t he shocking true story of banker Edmond Safra's death and the man wrongfully convicted and imprisoned for the crime.

When billionaire banker Edmond Safra died in the ashes of Monaco's La Belle Epoque building on December 3, 1999, the event made international headlines-for many reasons. One, of course, was the sheer wealth of the Lebanese mogul and his formidable presence in the international banking world. But the more seductive reason for the worldwide attention was the strange and intriguing way Safra died-ensconced within the armored walls of his vigilantly secured residence in the "safest city in the world."

At 4:45 in the morning, a firestorm gutted Safra's opulent Monte Carlo penthouse, trapping-and killing-Safra and one of his nurses, Vivian Torrente. When the fire was ruled arson, a fast finger was pointed at the only other nurse present: former Green Beret Ted Maher.

The true, bizarre circumstances that led to Safra's death and to the subsequent imprisonment of Ted Maher are contained within the pages of Framed in Monte Carlo: How I Was Wrongfully Convicted for a Billionaire's Fiery Death . The story features a play-by-play of that deadly night, as well as Ted's sham of a trial that put him behind bars for seven years and eight months. Brutal betrayals, harrowing kidnappings, prison breaks straight out of The Great Escape , and more pepper the pages of Framed in Monte Carlo .

Ted was freed when the judge from his trial came forward with a stunning revelation. But his life was never the same. And since his return to American soil, he's continued to unearth more and more disturbing details about his ordeal. Armed with fresh facts, a greater understanding of the players, and a wider lens of perspective, Ted now reveals all, including his never-before-released findings that seek to answer the lingering big question: Who did kill Edmond Safra? The powerful famous names legitimately put forth by the author will shock you.
