A national bestseller—over 7 million copies sold. "[A] social document of rare importance."—The New RepublicProsecuting attorney in the Manson trial, Vincent Bugliosi held a unique insider's position in one of the most baffling and horrifying cases of the twentieth century: the cold-blooded Tate-LaBianca murders carried out by Charles Manson and four of his followers.
