Overview

When prison inmate Robert Reldan's aunt died and left him an $8.9 million trust fund, Arthur and Barbara Reeve, parents of murder victim Susan Reeve, acted to deprive Reldan of the funds that could gain him freedom on parole. The Reeves ultimately got an unheard of $10 million judgment against their's daughter's killer, effectively stripping the man known as America's richest inmate. Soon after Susan's murder, the Reeves set up a scholarship fund in her name and the killer's money is currently used in that fund which helps to educate young men and women. The Charmer embraces the hunt to bring a Susan killer to justice and then the chase of a lifetime by one family determined to give their slain daughter a voice, decades after she was silenced.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Born into wealth and gifted with charm, Robert Reldan started out as a small-time criminal. But as his rap sheet grew, his previous crimes weren't introduced as factors into later trials, and his jail terms ran concurrently. According to lawyer/writer Muti and former New Jersey deputy attorney general Buckley, who ultimately prosecuted Reldan in the mid-1970s, this allowed Reldan the chance to strike again and again. Their book is terrifying not only because of the nature of the crimes chronicled—including the rape and murder of two young women only days apart—but also because these victims might have lived. The authors recount how bystanders came very close to seeing or hearing Reldan in the act. VERDICT Readers hoping to see justice served may come away wanting more. One murder victim's parents set up a memorial scholarship after suing for wrongful death, but, ironically, the $9 million they received was from the rich aunt whom Reldan had tried to have killed for her money. Best for hard-core true crime heads.—Krista Bush, Shelton Public Sch. Lib., CT

Meet the Author

The Charmer is Richard Muti's third book after 19 years as a successful trial proscecutor. He is a sought professor teaching writing, American government and criminal justice. He is a former Navy pilot and city mayor. Charles Buckley ultimately prosecuted Robert Reldan with a brilliant 25-year career as a prosecutor and the front row seat which produced The Charmer.

Deputy Attorney General Charles Buckley tried cases the way he lived his life--as a nose-to-the-grindstone, blue-collar-type of guy, with all the best characteristics a working class background implies. He spent 25 years as one of New Jersey's top trial prosecutors, acting as a modern-day legal Paladin--have briefcase, will travel--and crisscrossing New Jersey to try the most difficult cases.
Buckley put away the boss of the Philadelphia/Atlantic City crime family, as well as the capo in charge of the Hudson County waterfront. In New Jersey's first televised trial, he convicted a judge who accepted bribes to fix sentences. Other public officials felt Buckley's brand of justice: an official taking bribes to facilitate bridge and road construction; a mayor and planning board members taking bribes from developers; and a Hudson County police chief, Passaic County detective, and two City of Paterson cops--all convicted for misconduct involving organized crime.
