From the award-winning journalist, Leonard Levitt, a moving and revealing look into how he and investigator Frank Garr doggedly pursued clues in the Martha Moxley case, braved the odds, refused to give up the case, and uncovered information that led to Michael Skakel's conviction for murder.
Long before the world turned its eyes back to the brutal, unsolved murder of Martha Moxley, Leonard Levitt, an investigative reporter, and Frank Garr, lead detective with the Greenwich Police Department, were on the case. Frank Garr sifted through the case materials and followed several leads that had not been thoroughly pursued. Levitt, meanwhile, kept the case in the public eye (even against protests from media, including some of his employers), gaining access to a confidential report that put Michael Skakel at the scene of the crime, and showed he had withheld information about the events that occurred on the last night of Moxley's life.
Even after law enforcement officials gave up and closed the case, the two doggedly pursued clues, convinced that the real killer was still loose, and an injustice was being done. This is the incredible story of how a police officer and a reporter refused to give up a story, and of how, against all odds, two unexpected heroes managed to seek and find justice.
