Summary

Greenwich,Connecticut, also known as "Greentown," has never recovered from thesavage murder of fifteen-year-old Martha Moxley, whose battered body wasdiscovered on the grounds of her home in the privileged enclave of Belle Havenon Halloween night in 1975. The immediate suspects were Thomas and MichaelSkakel, nephews of Ethel Kennedy, who lived across the street. Until recently,no one was ever charged in the murder, and it went down as one of the legendaryunsolved crimes of recent history. DominickDunne, who used the murder as the basis for his bestselling novel A Season in Purgatory, encouraged Tim towrite Greentown, which, like Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil,uses a searing crime to probe the heart of a community looking for its soul. InGreenwich, heart and soul are corrupted by money and what it can buy-not justunimaginable material comforts, but protection from the law. Thisbook, and Tim Dumas's dogged investigation, were instrumental in reviving thecase, which led to the current indictment of Michael Skakel in the crime. Powerful,haunting, and beautifully written, with new material that covers Skakel'sconviction and the long-term aftermath of the crime, Greentown is a story about wealth in America and the nether side ofthe American dream.
