Fine condition 1st Edition/1st Printing hardcover in Near-Fine condition dust jacket SIGNED by Vincent Bugliosi on the title page without inscription. "Alone with her new husband on a tiny Pacific atoll, a young woman, combing the beach, finds an 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 Helter Skelter, the number-one bestselling true crime book of all time, 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." -- the publishers. The 1st printing is spotless inside and out, with sharp corners and no rub wear. Its only flaw is a pair of tiny nicks in the bottom edge of the front cover, both less than 1/8". The dust jacket is not price-clipped, is completely clean and has no chips or tears, just very slight shelf wear to the glossy surfaces. Will be bubble-wrapped and shipped in a sturdy box to ensure safe delivery. Bookseller Inventory # ABJ14
Synopsis: Bugliosi, prosecutor of Charles Manson and the coauthor of Helter Skelter, delivers this incredible story of a couple who disappeared from a tropical island in 1974. Seven years later, a young woman visiting Palmyra found an odd aluminum container, apparently washed up out of the lagoon, and something glinting in the sand beside it: a gold tooth in a human skull. These are the stark facts at the heart of the most intriguing true murder mystery of our time. Sold to Columbia Pictures TV for the highest amount ever paid for book rights in a TV miniseries; scheduled to be a 3-part CBS series in February.
Review: And the Sea Will Tell spins a riveting story--a story that could have been the backbone for a classic novel by Herman Melville or Joseph Conrad. Two couples--one wealthy and married, the other an ex-con and his hippie girlfriend-- separately set sail for a remote South Pacific island, each hoping to play "Adam and Eve" in paradise. Instead of getting away from it all, they take it with them-- their pasts and prejudices, and the petty battles over status and material goods that arise from their different social classes. Only two people out of the original four live through the experience. One of them has the extraordinary good luck to be defended in court by master attorney Vincent Bugliosi (author of Helter Skelter). As the Los Angeles Times writes, "The book succeeds on all counts. The final pages are some of the most suspenseful in trial literature."
