Waterstones Says

An undisputed classic of true crime writing, Bugliosi and Gentry’s rigorously researched and methodically collated volume is the last word on the Manson murders. Blessed with the first hand testimony of the case’s prosecuting lawyer Bugliosi, Helter Skelter elevates the true crime genre into genuinely seminal literature.  

THE BEST-SELLING TRUE CRIME BOOK IN HISTORY
______________________
The shocking true story of the Tate-LaBianca murders, revealed in this harrowing, terrifying book penned by the prosecutor who finally put Charles Manson behind bars. Helter Skelter won a Mystery Writers of America Edgar Award in 1975 for Best Fact Crime Book.

On August 9th 1969, seven people were found shot, stabbed and bludgeoned to death in Los Angeles. America watched in fascinated horror as the killers were tried and convicted. But the real questions went unanswered. How did Manson make his 'family' kill for him? What made these young men and women kill again and again with no trace of remorse? Did the murders continue even after Manson's imprisonment?

No matter how much you think you know about this case, this book will still shock you. For decades, this has been the definitive account of the Manson murders.
