Summary
'Hunting Charles Manson the best true crime book you will ever read...Lock your doors, keep the night lights on, and read this book.' - Linda Fairstein, New York Times bestselling crime novelist

In the late summer of 1969, the nation was transfixed by a series of gruesome murders in the hills of Los Angeles. Newspapers and television programs detailed the brutal slayings of a beautiful actress--twenty six years old and eight months pregnant with her first child--as well as a hair stylist, an heiress, a businessman, and other victims. The City of Angels was plunged into a nightmare of fear and dread. In the weeks and months that followed, law enforcement faced intense pressure to solve crimes that seemed to have no connection.

Finally, after months of dead-ends, false leads, and near-misses, Charles Manson and members of his 'family' were arrested. The bewildering trials that followed once again captured the nation and forever secured Manson as a byword for the evil that men do.

Drawing upon deep archival research and exclusive personal interviews--including unique access to Manson Family parole hearings--former federal prosecutor and Fox News legal analyst Lis Wiehl has written a propulsive, page-turning historical thriller of the crimes and manhunt that mesmerized the nation. And in the process, she reveals how the social and political context that gave rise to Manson is eerily similar to our own.

This was just a rehash of everything else that has been written! Nothing original, just reporting facts we’ve all heard a zillion times! The narrator couldn’t even pronounce LindA kasabian”s name. The pronunciation is not KA SOB BE IN , it is KA SAY BE IN! This is the worst book on the Manson murders ever written!! Don’t waste your money or time. Instead get the book written by one of the girls. I’m sorry the title escapes me right now but you can find it on here if you search under Manson murders As for this joke of a book, I want my credit back!
