Chaos: Charles Manson, the CIA, and the Secret History of the Sixties

Tom O’Neill had no interest in the Manson Family murders when he was tasked with writing a piece for the thirtieth anniversary of this series of crimes that marked a generation and has lingered in popular imagination. But as O’Neill began looking for a new angle to shed light on an already thoroughly discussed story, he discovered holes in the official narrative. It became an obsession. He missed his magazine deadline by 20 years, but by that time, had enough for a book. What actually happened is difficult to say with certainty, but it’s now obvious that the official story definitely never happened. O’Neill (with some help from Piepenbring) tells us why.
