A hippie couple and a spoiled rich couple clash and murder is the result on an isolated Pacific atoll. Too unbelievable to be fiction, the set-up is wonderful reading. The follow-on, much longer trial section gets tedious. Bugliosi thought very highly of himself and eventually the book becomes all about him rather than about the victims or the criminals. Bugliosi caught lighting in a bottle with Helter Skelter (which everyone should read) and kind of misses on this one. The book is saved by the great writing of co-author Bruce Henderson whose books fare exceed Bugliosi's work (except for Helter Skelter). On a scale of 1-10 of must reads, this is a five and if you really love trials, or sailing or hippies, a seven.

The book is good reading. It gives good insight to the workings of courtrooms and strategies of both defense and prosecuting attorneys. The book starts a little slow as if goes into the background of some of the people involved in the crime, but picks up when everyone is on the island. If you enjoy reading about crimes/courts I would recommend the book.
