Charles Manson - Helter Skelter and Beyond is a biography of Charles Manson, the infamous convict charged with murder and conspiracy to murder in the late 1960's. Manson formed and led the "Manson Family" to heinously commit the Tate-LaBianca murders. Helter Skelter, a reference to a Beatles song, is forever connected to the Manson murders; but by his own account, Helter Skelter was a term Manson used to predict and produce an apocalyptic racial war between whites and blacks. Charles Manson and the Manson Family murders have become a symbol of evil, bloody violence, and the macabre which continues to fascinate us today. Charles Manson - Helter Skelter and Beyond is highly recommended for those interested in the chilling account of Charles Manson and the Manson Family and for those interested in the unusual connection the murders have with the rock/pop culture from then and now.

The #1 True Crime Bestseller of All Time—7 Million Copies Sold In the summer of 1969, in Los Angeles, a series of brutal, seemingly random murders captured headlines across America. A famous actress (and her unborn child), an heiress to a coffee fortune, a supermarket owner and his wife were among the seven victims. A thin trail of circumstances eventually tied the Tate-LeBianca murders to Charles Manson, a would-be pop singer of small talent living in the desert with his "family" of devoted young women and men. What was his hold over them? And what was the motivation behind such savagery? In the public imagination, over time, the case assumed the proportions of myth. The murders marked the end of the sixties and became an immediate symbol of the dark underside of that era. Vincent Bugliosi was the prosecuting attorney in the Manson trial, and this book is his enthralling account of how he built his case from what a defense attorney dismissed as only "two fingerprints and Vince Bugliosi." The meticulous detective work with which the story begins, the prosecutor's view of a complex murder trial, the reconstruction of the philosophy Manson inculcated in his fervent followers…these elements make for a true crime classic. Helter Skelter is not merely a spellbinding murder case and courtroom drama but also, in the words of The New Republic, a "social document of rare importance."

Part Four: The Search for the Motive Why did the Manson family commit the murders? How did Charles Manson convince his 'family' to kill for him? What was their connection to ‘Helter-Skelter’, a popular hit song by The Beatles? What was the end-of-the- world race war Manson believed would happen? The gripping account of the Manson murders continues with this next instalment of the eight-part true story. Find out how as Manson’s influence as a counter-culture figure grows, the cultural influence and fascination with the Beatles are discovered.
Part Three: The Investigation - November 18 - December 31, 1969 Investigations into the 'Family' begin in earnest. Follow the detailed forensic account of the investigation; from witness statements to the questioning of the suspects and the examination of the compounds in Chatsworth and the surrounding Death Valley, California. The quasi-religious devotion of the 'Family' to leader Charles Manson is revealed in the suspects' chilling statements, while a substantial amount of stolen vehicles and fire arms are discovered on the Manson property - a remote ranch in the Death Valley.
Part Six: The Official Trial Begins The prosecution decides to pursue ‘vicarious liability’ via conspiracy, meaning that all who were involved in the conspiracy to commit murder can be charged. On trial, Manson proves to be surprisingly honest, though his ego and tendency to play word games with his own testimony is called into question. Prosecution hints they will reveal a 'surprise motive'. Key witness Linda Kasabian is called to testify.
