it was amazing
Read in February, 1989

Easily one of the scariest true crime books I've ever read. I read this in high school- just for fun, no joke. I spent three days completely hooked and sleep-deprived as a result. The nail-biting true story of the emergence of the Charles Manson Gang off a deserted movie ranch(Spahn Ranch) into nationwide headlines with the brutal murders of Sharon Tate, friends of hers, and The LoBianco family in 1969. It launched a terrifying period in the Hollywood Hills with the sheer brutality. Bugliosi not only was the lead attorney on the case, but he has researched the entire case- and what has happened to the members of the gang who were involved in the killings, as well as Manson himself- almost his entire career. If there's a true crime book that's in my collection for life, it's this one. It's also not the one you want to read before bed, unless you're good at not being that affected by what you've read
