The first edition of Greentown helped reopen one of America’s most shameful unsolved murder cases, the savage slaying of fifteen-year-old Martha Moxley in an exclusive enclave of Greenwich, Connecticut, the night before Halloween 1975. Soon after Martha’s body was discovered, attention focused on members of the Skakel family, who lived across the street from the Moxleys. Ethel Skakel and Robert Kennedy had married in Greenwich, and the two families were close. Thomas Skakel, Ethel’s nephew, was the last known person to see Martha alive. The murder weapon, a ladies’ golf club, came from the Skakel household. When the Greenwich police tried to pursue its investigation, however, the community closed in upon itself. Lawyers were summoned, walls went up, information was suppressed, and no one was charged. And yet, continuing to haunt Greenwich, the case refused to go away—until, twenty-three years later, following the publication of this book, a grand jury was convened, and two years after that a man—Thomas’s brother Michael—was finally indicted for the crime. This revised edition now brings the Martha Moxley murder case to a close. Updated to include the indictment, trial, and conviction of the murderer, Greentown offers the suspenseful and chilling account of a terrible crime. More than that, while relating a tale of seductive power, it uses the murder to tell the heartrending story of a family and a community responding to the unthinkable.

The affluent community of Greenwich has another side to it. It's where the "have nots" seek their own success and status, sometimes by any means necessary. That was true back in the summer of 1979, when a beautiful young woman with assets she's willing to use, a reporter seeking headlines and redemption, and a New England tough waitress with a dark secret were among those making, breaking, and keeping promises! What people are saying about Post Road Promises "Jim Ramsey really knows his territory-The Greenwich of 1979, before the high walls and hedge funders, when the town still had rough edges, dark corners, and great local characters. That Greenwich is between these covers." - Timothy Dumas, author of Greentown: Murder and Mystery in Greenwich, America's Wealthiest Community "My younger days in Greenwich came back alive in vivid detail. If I had been a part of a story like this back in 1979, I would have made Lieutenant a lot sooner!" - Lt. Tommy Keegan, GPD (Retired), GHS 1971 "A fascinating look at my hometown. It reminds me you still have to be able to meet everyone at their own level, whether at the Bruce Park Tavern or the Greenwich Country Club. A fabulous reflection of life in Greenwich. I loved every word." - David Theis, Greenwich Board of Selectmen, GHS 1967
