Helter Skelter: The True Story of the Manson Murders - Curt Gentry, Vincent Bugliosi I honestly loved this book. I never once found it boring, but I would not recommend this for people who can't stomach long, technical, detailed account of the investigation, trial, and sentencing. This book also takes into account the theory and other alternate theories behind the murder. Since it is co-written by one of the prosecutors of these crimes, it is a pretty accurate source.
