Helter Skelter. 1969’s Summer of Love came to an abrupt end when a group of hippies killed seven people -- actress Sharon Tate and four others at Tate's home, plus a married couple. Here we meet Jack Middleton, an aging LAPD Detective who is convinced The Beatles' White Album hides clues to these ghastly murders. He is led into the '60s underworld of Black Panthers, Hell’s Angels, and psychedelic sexed-up rockers. As Jack figures it out, he is determined to bring a shaggy-haired monster named Charles Manson and his followers to justice . . .and he might just accomplish that goal with the help of a zealous African-American narcotics cop named Delware Hicks. "A very good read," says Amazon Top 500 Reviewer S. Riaz.

"This is not so much a novel about the Manson murders, but a novel about the investigation of the Manson murders," notes Amazon Top 500 Reviewer S. Riaz. "An unusual approach to crimes which still shock today … and a very good read."

"Based on real-life events, this thriller will keep your eyes riveted to the page," says Nicolas Teranzi, Online Critics Corner.

"A novel similar in it's writing style to the Godfather," notes reviewer J. Madden. "The author takes certain real events then adds his story and characters around them. Different but good."

"Another Manson book, I didn't think this one would be any different. But it is," says Jerry Levy, whose reviews have been voted 100% Helpful on Amazon. "It's a lot more clever than I would have thought and has some interesting characters, Jack being at the top of the heat. Jack's a fictitious character, a long-time cop who's near the end of his career. He's jaded and pared with a black cop, a recipe for disaster. I liked the tension between the two as Jack tries to go about solving the Manson murders. The book takes you into the counter-culture of the late 1960s, really interesting to read about … I'd recommend it."
