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."

ABOUT THE BOOK The Tate-LaBianca murders perpetrated by Charles Manson and his followers (called “the Family”) truly deserves to be called a Crime of the Century. I was about ten-years-old when the murders took place in 1969, and being so young I was only vaguely aware of the events when they happened, but this wasn’t a crime that stayed in the headlines for a couple of weeks and then disappeared. It stayed in the memory. Everyone talked about it. In those days adults tried not to describe such things in the presence of children, but the Tate-LaBianca murders was a trend setter, and the crime and the ensuing trial captured the American imagination. With his deranged stare and cryptic and confused statement, Manson himself became the model for the psycho killer; crazy and inscrutable, he had a plan that was even more deranged than his appearance. MEET THE AUTHOR Jeff Davis is a life long educator with a Ph.D. in English Studies who has taught at both the high school and university levels. He is also an artist and an amateur anthropologist who is a proponent of “First Art,” that art which our ancient ancestors practiced some 30,000 years ago and even earlier. His most recent book, The First-Generation Student Experience, expanded the college student-affairs field describing the challenges of contemporary nontraditional students. Related to his interest in evolutionary biology, he is currently working on a writing pedagogy book that argues that motivation is the most important dimension of the creative process, even more important than skill and native ability. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK On the afternoon of August 8, 1969, Manson set his plan in motion. Calling together several of his followers, he announced “Now is the time for Helter Skelter.” That evening he told three female members of the Family–Susan Atkins, Patricia Krenwinkel, and Linda Kasabian–to grab a change of clothes, a knife, and their driver’s licenses. Manson privately discussed details of the plan with a fourth Family member, Charles “Tex” Watson, before all four piled into an old Ford. “Helter Skelter” was Charlie’s name for a self-predicted race war that the Family would get started (see section titled Helter Skelter above). Manson conceived of the Tate-LaBianca murders as the trigger that would start up the race war. Although Helter Skelter is widely regarded as the main motive for the murders, Manson possessed other crazy ideas that guided his actions, at least to some extent. One of these ideas was that he was a gifted musician who could be as famous as The Beatles if he ever got the right break. Charlie learned how to play the guitar in prison and had written numerous songs. He even went so far as to contact people in the music industry to listen to and distribute his tapes. A year before the murders took place, he had made the acquaintance of Dennis Wilson, the drummer for the Beach Boys, who evidently told Manson that he would put in a good word for him. It’s unclear if Wilson really intended to help Manson or even if his encouragement was sincere. Wilson himself was heavily into the drug scene at the time, and Manson’s wild appearance and behavior would have been enough for him to want to appease Charlie out of fear for his own safety, if nothing else.

Klondike lore is full of accounts of the exploits of Dangerous Dan McGrew, Sergeant Preston of the Mounted, and the Mad Trapper of Rat River. The stories vary from outright fabrications to northern fantasies and, on occasion, real-life accounts. Strange Things Done investigates a series of murders in the pre-World War II Yukon, exploring the boundaries between myths and historical events. The book seeks to understand both the specific events, carefully reconstructed from court evidence and police records, and the broader social and cultural context within which these violent deaths occurred. The murder case studies provide a unique and penetrating perspective on key aspects of Yukon history, such as Native-newcomer relations, mental illness and the folklore about cabin fever, the role of immigrants in northern society, violence in the gold fields, and the role of the police and courts in regulating social behaviour. The investigation of these capital cases also illustrates the fear and paranoia which gripped the territory in the aftermath of a murder, and the societys insistence on quick and retributive justice when offenders were caught and convicted. The Yukon experienced fewer murders than popular literature would suggest, and fewer than most would expect given the region's intense and dramatic history, but those that did occur illustrate the passions, frustrations, angers and human frailties that are present in all societies. The manner in which the murders occurred and the way in which Yukoners reacted also reveals specific and important aspects of territorial society.

"Bugliosi, the quintessential prosecutor, has written a crime book that should be read by every lawyer and judge in America."—F. Lee Bailey On December 11, 1966, a mysterious assassin shot Henry Stockton to death, set his house on fire, and left the scene without a trace. A year later, when a woman was found brutally killed, shreds of evidence suggested a connection between the two murders. In the Palliko-Stockton trial, prosecutor Vincent Bugliosi offered a brilliant summation that synthesized for the jury the many inferences and shades of meaning in the testimony, fitting all the pieces together in a mosaic of guilt. But will the jury be persuaded?
