Michael Skakel predicted, "I can get away with murder; I'm a Kennedy". But he was convicted in 2002, a couple years after this book came out. Skakel, nephew of
RFK's wife Ethel Skakel Kennedy, was convicted of bludgeoning 15 year old Martha Moxley to death. Early suspicion fell on his brother Thomas, but the case went cold...
then "changed stories" by suspects and the involvement of Domenic Dunne and Fuhrman
(plus the William Kennedy Smith case) brought the mystery back into the public eye.
While this book ends before the conviction, Fuhrman makes a strong case for Skakel's guilt and a likely motive. Len Cariou's narration is good except for one error: I believe the last name of the family is pronounced "SKAY-kll", not "SKAH-kll". For those accusing Fuhrman of being on an ego trip, not so;
he does explain how he was brought into an examination of the case, though.

I've worked in the criminal justice system for 30 years and I know a good detective. Mark Fuhrman is a good one and got a raw deal. He is also a very good true crime author. This is a book I would recommend.
