The #1 bestselling crime book of all time has been revised with a new afterword by Vincent Bugliosi. In August of 1969, the nation was shocked to learn of the brutal murders of actress Sharon Tate and six other innocent victims-all shot, stabbed, and bludgeoned to death in a two-day rampage of terror. The murderers were young men and women from middle-class families, followers of the now-notorious serial killer Charles Manson. How did Manson convince his "family" to kill? What actually happened that fatal night at Sharon Tate's Hollywood home? Prosecutor Vincent Bugliosi takes readers behind the scenes of the longest trial in American history-and inside the mind of one of America's most compelling criminals.
