On the night before Halloween in 1975, 15-year-old Martha Moxley was bludgeoned to death with a golf club in front of her home in the ultra-upper-class Belle Haven district of Greenwich, Connecticut. Though many suspects were brought forth, to this day no one has ever been arrested for the crime and no trial has taken place. Notorious former detective-turned-author Mark Fuhrman attempts to shed light on the Moxley case in a book that summarizes the fruits of his new investigation. Among Fuhrman's controversial opinions is his conclusion that the killer is Moxley's neighbor Michael Skakel, a nephew of Ethel Kennedy and at the time the same age as Martha Moxley. Some townspeople have long suspected Michael's older brother Thomas of performing the deed, but Fuhrman argues that only Michael had both the opportunity and the temperament to commit such a crime. Readers familiar with Fuhrman's role in the O.J. Simpson trial, or his subsequent book about that case, Murder in Brentwood, will not be surprised to find him hitting his familiar themes: the abuse of wealth and power, the arrogance of the high and mighty, and the vanity of celebrity. Otherwise, this is very much a hard-hitting detective work. Fuhrman's spare prose drives the book toward an inevitable conclusion with a moral or two in tow. On a rating of 1 - 10, 10 being an excellent buy I would certainly give this book a solid 8!
The book was very good. Mark Fuhrman does a very good job investigatively. His investigation was a contributing factor to Michael Skakel being arrested for the murder of Martha Moxley. I am glad he was helped justice to be served, especially for Martha.
good reading even though this is and old case,it still is in the media ocassionally because of the Kennedy cousin factor.
Excellent movie. Well done. The acting was really good. Mark Fuhrman did a very good job investigating the murder. He is a great Police Detective...
