First printing of this gripping account of the 1969 Tate-LaBianca murders, written and inscribed by the successful prosecutor of Charles Manson.
Very good in very good jacket.
"Every crime is committed for a reason."
According to Norton, this Edgar Award-winning account is the true crime genre's best-selling work. HELTER SKELTER reinforces its gripping narrative with an encyclopedic supply of reference materials: a lengthy cast of characters, an index, and a first-person account of the trial itself, straight from a primary source and participant.
