by S.J. Hawley
Los angeles, 1969. The slaughter of film star sharon tate and her friends by charles manson and his female disciples brought the age of aquarius to a bloody, if well-deserved, end. But what inspired the acid-crazed former jailbird and his teenage devotees to kill? A downward spiral into drugs, violence and perverted sex that lays bare the darkest corners of the american dream.
