Review:

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. --Tjames Madison
