    Description

    The first edition of Greentown helped reopen one of America's most shameful unsolved murder cases, the savage slaying of 15-year-old Martha Moxley in an exclusive enclave of Greenwich, Connecticut, the night before Halloween 1975. Soon after Martha's body was discovered, attention focused on members of the Skakel family, who lived across the street from the Moxleys. Ethel Skakel and Robert Kennedy had married in Greenwich, and the two families were close. Thomas Skakel, Ethel’s nephew, was the last known person to see Martha alive. The murder weapon, a ladies' golf club, came from the Skakel household. When the Greenwich police tried to pursue its investigation, however, the community closed in upon itself. Lawyers were summoned, walls went up, information was suppressed, and no one was charged. And yet, continuing to haunt Greenwich, the case refused to go away - until, 23 years later, following the publication of this book, a grand jury was convened, and two years after that a man - Thomas' brother Michael - was finally indicted for the crime.

    This revised edition now brings the Martha Moxley murder case to a close. Updated to include the indictment, trial, and conviction of the murderer, Greentown offers the suspenseful and chilling account of a terrible crime. More than that, while relating a tale of seductive power, it uses the murder to tell the heartrending story of a family and a community responding to the unthinkable.

    Really enjoyed it.

    I thought that the overall research was well sought after and put together .
    I am not convinced he is guilty.

    Loved By a Local

    I moved to Greenwich when I was in jr high and would hear about this story all the time. I remember meeting the author a few times while he was writing this book (very nice guy), and couldn’t wait to read it. I still enjoy it now, 20+ years later, as much as I did when it first came out. Excellent narration, too!

    Well done, with a few tangents

    Overall, a solid effort detailing not only a murder, but also the depravity of a community too wealthy to feel it has to play by the same rules as everyone else. The book written decades ago, includes an epilogue (which is also now several years gone), and comprehensively covers the story of the Moxley Murder. If anything, it may be a bit too comprehensive, as the jaunts into the history of crime in Greenwich from colonial times, the OJ Simpson trial, and the chronicling of the supposed curses on the Skakel and Kennedy families, while informative, do tend to feel like filler as they stretch out longer and longer.

    Too long / confusing

    Too many details on too many peripheral people ... by the time he got to the end I had no idea who was whom and the significance of who was arrested for the crime.

    A Murder Never Really Solved

    After the state of Connecticut decided in October 2020 to let Michael Skakel’s case “rest in peace”- I thought this would be of interest
    Martha Moxley and her dad are the only ones at peace - her mother Dorthy and her brother John and Michael Skakel’s lives have been living hell since October of 1975

    so many random tangents

    the book would constantly break off to explain the back story of random people. it killed the flow of the narrative. maybe half the book is about the actually case. don't buy it you want to read about the crime.

    Interesting True Crime

    This is an interesting and detailed true crime book about a murder of a 15 year old. For those that are interested in the Kennedy’s this is also for you. It’s interesting to see how their family and lives intersect with others.

    too many side stories

    There were way too many characters to keep them all straight. This could have been a much shorter book if the author had not included so much useless history or side stories.

    The author gets in the way

    This story is an interesting one and I liked how it was written (mostly). my biggest complaint was the author inserting himself as much as he did - the switch from 3rd to 1st person was hard sometimes. The performance was great though!

    would not recommend

    Way to long for a story that could have been told in 2 hours. Numerous confusing and pointless side stories.
