"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.

Praise

 

'Hunting Charles Manson the best true crime book you will ever read. No one could tell this story better--from its very beginnings to the riveting end--than Lis Wiehl: former prosecutor, legal commentator, and best-selling crime novelist. Fact is so much stranger than fiction, and Manson's dark and deadly life is proof of that. Lock your doors, keep the night lights on, and read this book.' - Linda Fairstein, New York Times bestselling crime novelist

 

'Lis Wiehl's real-life page-turner is jam-packed with new, fascinating, thoroughly researched, and relevant-today details about the making of a monster, the evolution of his dangerous charisma, and how he was finally brought to justice.' - Kate White, New York Times bestselling novelist

 

 

 

 

'You think you know everything about an infamous criminal case until brilliant writers and researchers like Lis Wiehl and Caitlin Rother come along to expose new layers and new insights. This is a must-read for true crime fans--and those who think they know everything about the Manson case.' - Gregg Olsen, #1 New York Times bestselling author

 

'Lis Wiehl is a pro who does her homework and knows what she's talking about. She's a storyteller extraordinaire and this one, though non-fiction, reads like a thriller. She gives voice and life to a troubling aspect of our history, one that is definitely worth remembering.' - Steve Berry, New York Times bestselling author
