In this hefty tome, Manson, he details the life of Charles Manson, whose masterminding of the 1969 Tate/LaBianca murders remains one of America’s most infamous crimes. If the result is low on flair, Guinn gets high marks for diligence, with interviewees who include Manson’s sister Nancy and prosecutor and Helter Skelter writer Vincent Bugliosi.
