I really enjoyed 'A Season in Purgatory' which is based on the Martha Moxley murder. I have always been fascinated by Martha's case as I believe it received relatively little media attention when it actually happened and Dunne basically explains why. Martha was murdered during a time when money and family name meant a lot to society - enough to influence the justice system. The murderer is able to escape being prosecuted for many years because of his family's standing in society and it ways heavily on the narrator who knows the truth but feels he can't come forward. This is essentially what happened in real life with Martha's killer as well. Definitely an enjoyable read.

Harrison was such a tragic and moral character. Being completely enamored by this powerful and brilliant family as a young boy. Idolizing his best friend and being tormented by a dark teenage secret he kept for him. Deceit, love, a girl, guilt, power, its all in here.

Even if you know the real life story on which this book is based, this one is a page turner. Why? Because Dominick Dunne makes the reader feel invested in the characters, despite the fact that there are few like-able people in this novel. But they are believable, at least for even a casual follower of the Kennedy family. I knocked off a few stars because some of the plot coincidences were a little predictable, like the protagonist stepping out of a bar following a tense meeting with the head of the family, and a guy with a missing piece of the puzzle just happens to be waiting for him. But like all Dunne novels, this is a slow burn, but a toasty one.

I really would like to get a hold of this movie. I was super good. Come on Lifetime bring back the good old movies, new ones are lame.

Absolutely loved this book, I could hardly put it down. I remember watching the made for tv version of this book and I was captivated even then. I would highly recommend to anyone who is considering reading it, you won't be disappointed!

Someone tells you they don't read, give them this book. They will then call you and blame you that it was because of this book that they had to stay up until 2am to finish it. It's that good. I keep two on hand simply to loan out. I am super picky about books and read all types. I'm not a "romance novel" person. Dunne hits his stride with this tale and comes from his years of sitting in courtrooms.

I am a 'true crime' book reader. I loved this book because an insight into the serial pathology of some members of the Skakel family of Greenwich, CT. Dunne is a first class writer.
I avoided this book for a long time, under the mistaken belief that it was just another potboiler, taking advantage of a tragedy to make a bestseller. Not so, I found upon reading it. In fact, the book is based only loosely on the Moxley murder and has a life all its own. The relationship the sometime narrator has with an obscenely wealthy, powerful, immoral family is far more interesting than the murder, which is at the center of the narrative. Dunne does not come across as a great novelist, if one judges him by his TV interviews. This book is not at all befuddled. Dunne knew exactly what he was doing with every word.
