On the night before Halloween, 1975, a pretty and popular fifteen-year-old girl was bludgeoned to death in Greenwich, Connecticut. Brothers Thomas and Michael Skakel, nephews of Ethel Kennedy, were both suspects. But no arrests were ever made, and nearly a quarter of a century later the agonizing question: Who killed Martha Moxley? still hovers over the luxurious estates and manicured lawns of the wealthiest town in America.
The case has inspired both bestselling novelists and tabloid investigators. But only A WEALTH OF EVIL finally brings one of the most horrifying crimes of our era truly closer ot its stunning conclusion. Born and bred in Greenwich, author Timothy Dumas knows well the players and exclusive world of which he writes...and in the probing, haunting tradition of Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, only A WEALTH OF EVIL opens the gilded doors to America's richest and most secretive community, as well as its most glittering and scandal-ridden dynasty.
And, ultimately, tells us more about the living than the dead...
