Timeless Intensity.

Vincent Bugliosi tells this dark story of murder and deception better than anyone. Being so close to the case, and involved in the prosecution of one of America's most talked about murdr cases of all time, gives him insight into the madness that is Charles Manson that can't be manufactured by other crime writers. This story is laid out detail by horrifying detail from the eyes of those involved with trying to get justice for the victims. The whole process of bringing the killers into the justice system and trying to pass judgement on a crime that most people couldn't even imagine let alone try to understand is fascinating in it's attention to detail. Looking at how Bugliosi and hia team make their case so strongly in what was the most publicized trial of all time back then, makes me understand Bugliosi's blistering criticism of the prosecution in the O.J. Simpson trial.
