    Watch Murder In Prime Video The first episode is very lightweight, like a Hallmark or Lifetime movie on American TV Too much humor in a detective story ruins it, in my opinion However, we just watched the second, Murder in Batz, and it is much, much better The duo from the first of these episodes apparently stars in three of the six.

    1. I am giving the book and the detectives prosecution involved in bringing this criminal justice 5 stars Many years ago I saw the authors at my town library and hearing the tale of the story I was only familiar with from sensationalized news reports was fascinating Though it took many years for me to read the book, I found it fascinating to learn how the detectives painstakingly put the case together The author was able to relay the conversations and details in an easy to understand read The story [...]

    2. A true crime novel about the murder of a doctor s wife in the well heeled community of Wellesley, Massachusetts May Greineder is savagely beaten and stabbed on a walking trail, accompanied by her husband, Dirk Since the cover notes make no secret of the fact that the doctor was the perpetrator, I am not spoiling the book with that revelation After ruling out the possibility that she was attacked by a stranger, the police begin to delve into the background of the marriage and the doctor s life in [...]

    3. The title tells the tale, but the why is the mystery Fascinating true story that fails to explore the psychology behind the crime, or its most fascinating aspect the blind, unwavering support of the children for their father when he becomes a suspect in the killing of their mother Authored by a Boston Herald reporter who covered the story and a Massachusetts State Policeman who investigated the murder, the book is haphazardly constructed, poorly written, and badly edited, generating very little [...]

    4. Three and a half stars I d actually give Marty Foley 5 big stars but the writing of Tom Farmer drives it down The story here is fascinating and sad Overall I d recommend this book.

    5. Thanks Kathy Devey for sharing this book with me I ll pas it onto Sharon to read too But Billy may just have to read it next as the McDermott s grew up next to him on Brinton Road in Brookline and Jill McDermott is the Wellesley Detective on her first murder case This real crime story takes place in the town where I grew up Wellesley, MA I remember all the press this story received back in 1999, as it was about a prominent doctor and his wife who appeared on the surface to have a perfect family [...]

    6. This is a good procedural book following the locally infamous murder of Mabel Greineder by her husbandwell known allergist Dr Dirk Greineder on Halloween Day in 1999 Co authored by one of the lead investigators, the book is clearly biased toward the prosecution but as they always say the facts don t lie By the end of the court proceedings the only people who continue to publicly support Dr Greineder are his three well educated adult children The story is a classic case of a successful, intellige [...]

    7. I picked this book up on a whim and it turned out great I m a fan of true crime, but I feel that a lot of books get too sensationalist I want to know the background and follow the investigation, not get caught up in all the lurid details This book definitely delivered on that, because even with the nefarious goings on, the book kept pretty much to the facts and not supposition The reason it s a 4 star book and not a 5 is that the writing could get confusing and there were several times when I ha [...]

    8. This was a very different type of book for me to read and I found myself getting and involved as I got into the story I admit that I went into this assuming Dirk was innocent I didn t really know a lot about the inside story except what was in the news But after reading this book, I felt like part of the jury The clean hands did it for me I found it quite impossible to be in so much blood and claim he didn t wash his hands yet no blood appeared to be on his hands I feel that he is guilty and h [...]

    9. Tom Farmer and Marty Foley visited Wilmington Library last night to discuss the work and research that went into this book What a great talk for a great book Many people in this area were actually alive when this murder happened, so they remember the news reports and media frenzy that surrounded the story of the murderous doctor Farmer and Foley really lay the whole story out and present a lot of information that wasn t available when the killing took place We still have several copies available [...]

    10. This story is local to me, so I immediately enjoy that I know where places are Martin Foley lives one town over from me Very relatable I don t love courtroom stories and that s where the book fell a little flat for me personally I expected it to be a little dramatic It seemed like I was reading a police report at times, not a book Still worth a read if you like true crime from the investigative point if view, or if you are a local.

    11. This book just really didn t need to be written or read, in my opinion It was just uninteresting I read it because it s local to me, but other than that it was just a generic write up about a murder trial There were no twists and turns Well written, I guess, and that s fine, I just felt like it was boring and there was nothing interesting specifically about the trial The man was in a sexless marriage and used the internet to satisfy that need, EVERYONE FREAK OUT.

    12. A lot of the reason this book was of interest to me was because I grew up in Wellesley although all I remember about the murder was that kids weren t allowed to go trick or treating near Morses Pond that year The authors did a good job of presenting the facts in an organized and readable manner They definitely didn t present things very neutrally, which I think could bother some people, but overall I thought the book was informative and worth reading.

    13. Made me not want to walk in the woods with my husband But seriously, this is a retelling of the story we all know from the point of view of the lead detective on the case There are a lot of interesting details about how the evidence was gathered and evaluated It s a sad story that left me wondering why that Monster felt the need to kill his poor wife who, no doubt, was taken completely by surprise It was a brutal crime comitted by a heartless coward.

    14. The solution to this murder mystery seems quite obvious from the start, and the book just sort of grinds its way to the conclusion without offering much insight Most interesting is watching the relatives on one side of the family the ones who cooperated in the book project, naturally , coming around to recognize the guilt of the perpetrator.

    15. Compelling read, especially since this a local story for me I love a book that I can t put down I just wish the author had refrained from so much editorializing Yes, it was a nasty crime, but his frequent use of adjectives such as gruesome, horrible, sinister, etc actually made the narrative less effective.

    16. Interesting, albeit disturbing book Written in a very factual basis, almost like the old Dragnet series What I found most intriguing was how a real murder case is investigated, solved, tried and convicted This isn t Law and Order, or even the Harry Bosch series that I love A real crime, and the true story of it without the Hollywood twists.

    17. I read this book because I know some of the characters peripherally The writing is horrendous constant use of the passive voice but I stuck with it anyway I suggest reading a synopsis of the trial in a back issue of People Magazine instead of this book.

    18. Couldn t put it down Mediocre writing and chopped up story kept me from giving it 4 stars But fascinating mechanics of the investigation co author was lead detective If you were in the Boston area at the time of the widely publicized trial, you might want to read it.

    19. This book was very well written It is not always easy to achieve that balance of providing factual commentary and providing exciting prose and these authors managed it I was thoroughly involved and I knew who did it I was very impressed.

    20. A TRUE CRIME GEM A TRUE CRIME GEM Thoroughly enjoyed this book Unlike many other true crime books, the courtroom testimony was also very interesting This is one for my library Will definitely read again sometime Great job.

    21. I didn t finish reading this It was too slow for me Probably a good story, I need something a bit faster though.

    22. Even though I was familiar with this case, I thoroughly enjoyed the book Not an intellectual quest, but a good read.

    23. Grew up in the town Still not sure what his possible motive could have been but never judge a man by where he lives A real page turner.
