They were allegedly under the influence of Charles Manson, a scruffy, would-be pop singer with questionable talent. They were young women from comfortable middle-class families committing murder. This authoritative, thoroughly researched chronicle of the Manson murders remains the most chilling "true crime" story ever. As prosecutor in charge of the case, Vincent Bugliosi was not required to determine motive, but as human being he was compelled to pursue the questions that baffled all of America. What was the nature of Manson's power over so many young people? Even more perplexing, what was his purpose? Or was there, in fact, no purpose at all?
