Summary

Alone with her new husband on a tiny Pacific atoll, a young woman, combing the beach, finds an odd aluminum container washed up out of the lagoon, and beside it on the sand something glitters: a gold tooth in a scorched human skull. The investigation that follows uncovers an extraordinarily complex and puzzling true-crime story. Only Vincent Bugliosi, who recounted his successful prosecution of mass murderer Charles Manson in the best seller Helter Skelter, was able to draw together the hundreds of conflicting details of the mystery and reconstruct what really happened when four people found hell in a tropical paradise. And the Sea Will Tell reconstructs the events and subsequent trial of a riveting true murder mystery, and probes into the dark heart of a serpentine scenario of death.

A brilliant tale

My two favorite genres being true-crime and anything nautical, this book did not disappoint. The author(s) and narrator were so logical, thoughtful and eloquent, I couldn't stop listening. I thoroughly enjoyed everything except the epilogue, which was written more for the law-student than high-seas sailor, but definitely a 5-star in entirety. Well-done.

Sea worthy

I love everything Bugliosi writes and this is no exception. There is a lot of lawyer- ease in this and you definitely feel like you're on the island and in the courtroom. But it is a very sad story of greed. It's sad that there is so much violence in this world that will find you even on a "deserted" island.

Well done. Fantastic read.

Loved the length, which allowed for thoroughness. Good for you Mr Bugliosi I wasn’t on that jury. She got away with murder. Unfortunately seems 2nd body will never be found, so she may never stand trial again.
