A typically Bugliosi account (=riveting and detail-laden) of the murder trials of two "hippies" who were on a deserted island near Hawaii with an older couple previously unknown to them. The couple disappeared and the hippies sailed into Hawaii in 1974 on the older couple's very nice boat. No one knows exactly what happened to the missing couple; the hippies claim they drowned in the lagoon on the island, but six years after her disappearance, bones were found washed up on the shore of the lagoon, with evidence of foul play.

Bugliosi believes his client (the female "hippie") is innocent...but she has lied numerous times under oath, and the available facts of the case are bizarre and unclear.

An interesting read, especially for those who like legal process (any Law&Order fans out there?).

Hard cover.
A brutal crime on an eerily beautiful Pacific island; an incomparable legal mind grappling with the nuances of the law and the fatal quirks of human nature; a courtroom drama whose outcome is in doubt down to the last rap of the gavel....

I loved this book. A very interesting tale about fellow American sport sailors meeting in a distant port; a crime occurs, and it takes years to unravel it all. Nobody writes this king of complex tale any better than Bugliosi.

The sea surrendered the grim evidence, and a beautiful newlywed found it washed up on a tiny atoll: an odd aluminum container and something glittering in the sand-a gold tooth ensconced in a scorched human skull. 7 years earlier, 2 couples separately set sail in search of a peaceful life: a wealthy yachtsman and his wife, an ex-con and his sexy girlfriend. Their destinies converged on a South Pacific island hundreds of miles from civilation. A savage murder left 2 of them there forever. A chilling crime. A baffling mystery. An explosive courtroom drama. A finale almost as stunning as the crime itself. THIS IS A NON-FICTION BOOK

Started off very good and interesting. But when the book was all about the trials it was pretty boring. I ended up skimming a lot of the book.

This kind of story really makes one wonder about fate. Talk about being in the wrong place at the wrong time. For no apparent reason other than crummy luck. The victims in this story still haunt me. A good read, laden with meticulously recorded details of the trial and spiced with photos .

True crime. Two seagoing couples, one upper class and the other hippy, meet on a very strange and inhospitable island, and one couple comes up missing and years later is found dead. Most interesting case.
