Publisher's Summary

Retired L.A. police detective and witness in the O.J. Simpson trial Mark Fuhrman investigates the murder of 15-year-old Martha Moxley. Martha was bludgeoned and stabbed with a golf club on the grounds of her family's Greenwich, CT, estate on the night of October 30, 1975. The club belonged to the Skakel family, whose 2 sons, Thomas and Michael, had been with Martha the night she died. But this prominent family - Ethel Skakel Kennedy was the boys' aunt - refused to cooperate with the police and the murder has remained unsolved. Fuhrman's new book covers the case from its beginning and reveals explosive new information, including how local police mishandled information, how the murder weapon was found - and then lost, how wealth and influence interfered with the investigation, and how authorities tried to stop Fuhrman's investigation.

Audible Editor Reviews

On a late October night in 1975, young Martha Moxley was brutally murdered, and for nearly a quarter of a century, no charges were levied. In 2002, a prime suspect, Michael Skakel, was convicted of murder. Now, thanks in part to a Connecticut judge granting Skakel a new trial, this audiobook from Mark Fuhrman has taken on an even greater weight. Performed with a rich authority from veteran Len Cariou, Murder in Greenwhich is the complicated and tragic story of murder, wealth, and influence. Fuhram, a retired L.A. police detective, presents a thorough and gripping account of what happened that fateful night and the mistakes that let the killer roam free for so long.

The Kennedy who didn't get away with murder

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.

Murder in Greenwich

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.
