This review is from: Helter Skelter - the True Story of the Manson Murders (Paperback)
"It was so quiet one of the killers would later say, you could almost hear the sound of ice rattling in cocktail shakers in the houses way down the canyon."
This was not an easy case for the Los Angeles detectives top solve. It was one of the biggest murder cases in American history, and definitely not for the faint-hearted. Written by Prosecutor Vincent Bugliosi and Curt Gentry, there are no holds barred, as all the facts surrounding these horrific murders are laid out in the open, naked for all to see of the Tate-LaBianca murders. The lovely movie star Sharon Tate, hairdresser to the stars Jay Sebring, the well heeled Abigail Folger the Coffee heiress, Voytek Frylowski, Folger's boyfriend, and Steven Parent who was at the address at the wrong time, Leno and his wife Rosemary LaBianca.
The warped and drugged out mind of Charles Manson killers shall be with you forever, as they kill for the fun of it for no particular reason. This well written novel will keep you engaged and it will be very hard to tear yourself away from it once you have begun.
This novel comes highly recommended.
