MANSON EXPOSED: A Reporter’s 50-Year Journey Into Madness And Murder

It’s rare that one reporter will have the same story evolve over 50 years with new facts and insights. Ivor Davis coauthored FIVE TO DIE, the first book ever published on the Manson murders, in 1970. After daily sitting through both the Manson and Charles Watson trials, the story did not end. Over the years as a reporter and New York Times syndicated columnist, Davis met more of the players. Who would know that on an interview with the late actress Doris Day, Davis would spend a couple of hours in the hotel bar with her son Terry Melcher and that he would open up about his involvement with Manson and his “escape” once the family was caught! Written with the efficiency of a reporter and a master storyteller’s eye, MANSON EXPOSED brings new life and unknown details to this story very few have ever known. “The most detailed behind-the-scenes account of the Manson trial that I have ever read. Fascinating.” — Stephen Kay, deputy prosecutor, Charles Manson and Charles Watson murder trials “Manson Exposed is a piercing, original look at a crime thatshocked the world. Davis, in this mix of personal memoir, criticism,and riveting reportage, delves into the heart of the case—and offers much that is new and perceptive about a crime that terrified and obsessed a nation.” — Simon Wells, author of the best seller Charles Manson: Coming Down Fast
