In 1981 while taking a stroll on a very small uninhabited Pacific Island, a woman saw something shiny lying on the sand. On further examination she suddenly realised it was a gold tooth inside a human skull. Close by were more human like bones, a strange old upturned metal box and some twisted metal wire. Little did she know at the time, but she had stumbled upon a bizarre murder scene. But who was the victim or victims?

In 1974 two sets of very different couples set sail to the small atoll of Palmyra, neither had any knowledge of the other until they arrived. One couple were married, honest friendly and true, old hands at yachting, very competent and fully prepared for the rigours of ocean life. They also sailed a carefully and obsessively maintained and equipped 35 foot beauty named the Sea Wind. The other couple by contrast were inexperienced, their boat was badly maintained and leaking, the hand made mast was made out of 2×6 timber, they had few supplies, no radio, navigated by the stars, and were described by many as hippies. He was also a twice convicted armed robber and drug dealer who liked guns and had once been a patient in a mental institution. He was also on the run from the authorities for jumping bail and was currently using an alias to evade capture. Described by more than one witness as brooding and violent, he perspired a sense of menace that his girlfriend seemed to either accept or not notice. He was said to create an atmosphere unless he was in a good mood. It seems she was an airhead who seemed to like “bad boys with muscles” and pretty much did as she was told.

From my perspective (a practicing criminal trial specialist, having tried notorious criminal cases and one which captured the eyes of the national media, (Eric Douglas Trial)I can say that this book does it all. Most impressive is the way Bugliosi spells out every detail of his thought process and his trial arguments. The reader feels privileged to know how the completely candid, borderline egomaniacal, Bugliosi, thinks about the case, the characters and the defendant. This is a master's manual on how to try a case, and the excruciating work it takes to win one.

Despite this excellent book I still have reservations about the part played by 'Jennifer Jenkins' in the Palmyra saga though this definition of events does offer a believable version of what may have happened. As usual Mr Bugliosi's book is an engrossing read & his defence role is covered in great detail, an aspect of the book I particularly enjoyed - I almost feel I could mount a defence were I to simply follow Vincent Bugliosi's basic plan.

Fascinating story, I loved the first part of the book. I wish there was more detail to the story but obviously its all locked away in Buck and Jennifer's minds. Mr Bugliosi comes across as particularly anal in terms of describing every single finite detail and his reasoning for it. Sometimes this can become tedious however given that he is a trial lawyer you have to let him off. The books a great insight into how he worked on the case.

A must read for anyone interested in law witch a great insight into the American courts system.

The first part of _And the Sea Will Tell_ is engrossing and spooky: the troubled boyfriend, the ditsy girlfriend, the yacht-class couple, the nasty little island, the disappearance. But the courtroom portions become a bit tedious. I disagree with the book's cover that the ending was "stunning." Despite Henderson's efforts to make it suspenseful, the last 1/3 of the book was predictable.

I have become somewhat obsessed with reading everthing I can on this true murder mystery. I have read ...And the Sea Will Tell approximately 5 times. After the first time, I disagreed with Mr. Bugliosi and thought that "Jennifer" (not her real name) was guilty just like Buck. But after re-reading it and watching the movie many times, I too, have concluded that "Jennifer" is innocent. I am a criminal justice student and my decision was based on the fact that Muff's body was dumped in the lagoon. Why were the bodies dumped there? Because Buck was the one who committed the crime, not "Jennifer". And since she did not know the Graham's true fate, Buck could not dump the bodies in the Pacific as that would have required loading the bodies on the Sea Wind or the Iola where he could have been caught by "Jennifer". The only logical conclusion is that "Jennifer" did not know of the grisly nature of the crime. If she knew and/or participated in the murders, why would they dump the bodies in the lagoon with the vast expanse of the Pacific Ocean available to them? Dumping the bodies in the Pacific would have assured them that the bodies most likely never would have been found. Secondly, why take a chance and remain on the island under the pretext of searching for the bodies when another traveler could have happened upon them at any time? I think the only thing "Jennifer" was guilty of was being naive about life and picking the wrong men. Being naive does not a killer make. This book is excellent for the heart pounding reading it provides, and the rest of us to see our criminal justice system at work.
