Prosecuting attorney in the Manson trial Vincent Bugliosi held a unique insider's position in one of the most baffling and horrifying cases of the 20th century: the cold-blooded Tate-LaBianca murders carried out by Charles Manson and four of his followers. What motivated Manson in his seemingly mindless selection of victims, and what was his hold over the young women who obeyed his orders? Now available for the first time in unabridged audio, the gripping story of this famous and haunting crime is brought to life by acclaimed narrator Scott Brick.

“One of the best crime stories ever written.” (Chicago Sun-Times)
Always wondered what it was all about. This book delivers a methodical and complete walkthrough of the Manson Family and the Manson trial. The author, Bugliosi, comes off as incredibly thorough and diligent. Manson comes off as a crazy person. Well work the read.
It amazes me how Manson was able to have followers that would die or kill for him. Sad they chose him to follow.
Say something about yourself!
Exceeded expectation, narration is perfect for the book.
A must read for any true crime fan and anyone interested in the Manson case.
Incredible story. I was totally pulled in. Fantastic narration by Scott Brick. I was worried that I wouldn't get through such a long book but I finished it in 10 days! The writing as well as Brick's performance are so compelling that I wasn't bored for a moment.
The creepy performance plus all the gory details make it a very scary book. I listened to it at night and would wake up with any little noise.
The introduction. He begins by describing the entire murder scene.
I haven't listened to another one, but look forward to it.
Book was good, just has an immense amount of information. It reminds me of taking a college course. You have to take notes or else you'll lose track of all the different people involved. Great information, great reading, wished it was more concise.
