Softcover. On August 9, 1969 Sharon Tate - the beautiful actress and wife of Roman Polanski - was brutally murdered in her Los Angeles home, along with her unborn son and four other innocent victims. The residents of 10050 Cielo Drive were singled out by Charles Manson, and in an act of crazed retribution he ordered members of his cult to break into the Polanski residence. Steven Parent died first - gunned down in his car. Then Sharon and her surviving house guests were herded into a room and terrorised. Before the brutal killing began, one of the murderers told the victims : 'I am the Devil, here to do the Devil's work.' The author details the search for the killers, the sensational trials and the history of their, at the time of publication, 30yr imprisonment. With the assistance of those who remember Sharon, the author recreates the life and times of a starlet, including her childhood, her marriage to one of the most famous directors in Hollywood and her all-too-short, but glittering, acting career. He brings to life the vivid story of her murderers and the labyrinthine history of Manson and his 'family' of killer disciples. Illus., Epilogue and Source Notes. 319pp. 8vo. softcover. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. F. Scarce.
