Helter Skelter: The True Story of The Manson Murders by Vincent Bugliosi
FIRST EDITION / SECOND PRINTING  W.W. NORTON & CO.
Hardcover with dust jacket, both in very good condition.
Dust jacket has visible wear and a few sealed edges but is otherwise clean, in tact and still quite vibrant and colorful; housed in a protective brodart dust jacket protector. Price clipped on front panel.
Book itself is very good; binding is sound; cloth / gild on spine shows some wear / fading. Clean boards; pages are bright and read super nicely. Some sporadic tan spots along exterior text block. Pretty mild and faint. A very nice copy of this rare first!
Prosecuting attorney in the Manson trial, Vincent Bugliosi held a unique insider's position in one of the most baffling and horrifying cases of the twentieth century: the cold-blooded Tate-LaBianca murders carried out by Charles Manson and four of his followers. What motivated Manson in his seemingly mindless selection of victims, and what was his hold over the young women who obeyed his orders? Here is the gripping story of this famous and haunting crime.
Helter Skelter won an Edgar Allan Poe Award for best true-crime book of the year.
