    Outside of “Helter Skelter,” THIS is the book to read about those horrible crimes. I love the way King starts with Sharon, bringing the reader up to the night of her murder, and then starts with those freaks – bringing everything together into the ending we all know about.

    He humanized Sharon in a way that few other people could.

    Now I’m looking forward to the books about the “other” victims. I would love to know more about who they were.

      I agree about the other victims. Very little has ever been mentioned regarding the other’s who suffered the same fate as Sharon. Aside from the fact that she was 8 months pregnant; the other victim’s lives were just as important to their loved ones.

    The public needs to know that when the Manson killers went to Sharon Tate’s house that night, they thought that Terry Melcher might still be living there. Manson was told that Melcher & Candace Bergen had moved, but he thought they might be telling a lie so that he (Manson) would stop going by the house to talk to Melcher. It wasn’t until the day after the murders that he knew for sure that Melcher had moved. WHY didn’t Melcher and Candace Bergen warn Sharon Tate that some really hideous characters kept coming to the house bothering them? That might have kept Sharon and Roman from renting the house!
