Still Spooky After All These Years
on August 1, 2017
The story has been written in a way to walk the reader through 100's of people and yet always is able to bring you straight back to the main characters that unfortunately made this book possible. I was born in 1970 and can remember people talking about Helter Skelter, Manson, Susan Adkins, etc from a young age. Since I started to read this book as an adult I have tried to be more aware of what and who is around me. So even though some of these people have died and others are still locked up it was a bit spooky. The author wrote like a true prosecutor by telling what facts there are and when he did bring up something that was not factual he told you as well as explained why he felt it necessary to add it to the story. I feel I have a better understand of Manson's childhood. I also feel the LAPD fouled up big time and we were fortunate others did their jobs or many others may have been killed by this group. I highly recommend this book for a mature audience who enjoys learning about the Manson Family and is also interested in seeing how California's court system worked back then.
