‘Tom O’Neill’s Chaos spirals out from the Manson Murders to become both a secret history of 20th century America, and a chronicle of his own descent into obsession, debt and madness, as he unravels the official story of the murders and follows the threads to the most extraordinary places. There’s a moment when he writes to his agent, ‘You’re not going to like this, but I think the JFK assassination is involved. And the CIA’s mind-control experiments.’ What more could you ask for?’
From the publisher
A journalist's twenty-year obsession with the Manson murders leads to shocking new conspiracy theories about the FBI's involvement in this fascinating re-evaluation of one of the most infamous cases in American history.
Twenty years ago, reporting for a routine magazine piece about the infamous Manson murders, journalist Tom O'Neill didn't expect to find anything new. But the discovery of horrifying new evidence kick-started an obsession and his life's work. What had he unearthed and what did it mean: why was there surveillance by intelligence agents? Why did the police make these particular mistakes and why did Tom's greatest ally in this fight turn into his biggest foe?
Chaos is an explosive read that will shock, grip and change our understanding of a case that has haunted the world for over fifty years.

'Tantalizing ... Founded on prodigious research ... O'Neill's 20-year investigation reads like a thriller.' LOS ANGELES TIMES
