And the Sea Will Tell
W. W. Norton & Company, 7 févr. 2011 - 576 pages
"Grips you by the throat from beginning to end."—Cleveland Plain DealerALONE 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 bestseller 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.

After a hurried and somewhat confusing call in midmorning, Muff had appeared
on the Jamiesons' front porch as edgy and heavyladen as a refugee. In her arms
she held a box that pushed against her chin. Shopping bags hung from her wrists
. As usual, she was trying to do too much at once, but the strain visible on her
face was not, in Marie's view, fully explained by the physical load she was
carrying. Half amused, half concerned, Marie helped her good friend bring in the
rest of the ...
“Look at her,” Muff said finally. “Look at what's happened to her.... Don't you see?
The hole in her head,” Muff said, referring to a deep gash. She covered her face
with her hands and began crying uncontrollably. Marie put down the statuette
and grabbed her friend tightly around the shoulders. The hysteria was catching.
Marie found herself crying, too, completely overwhelmed with a sense of dread
and loss. “I'm...not coming back,” Muff moaned. “Oh, Muff, you can't—” “Mac and I
NOTEVERYONE took Muff's foreboding so seriously. Her best friend, Billy Bunch,
rendezvoused with Muff one evening in front of the San Diego May Company for
a last windowshopping excursion before the sail. Billy and Muff had known each
other since 1952, when they met at the Y pool, where each swam laps after work.
It turned out that both worked at General Dynamics, one of Southern California's
giant aerospace employers. In fact, they were assigned to the very same project:
Mac was never one to admit he might someday need emergency aid, but he liked
the idea that his and Muff's relatives and friends could get word to them in their
secluded paradise via Curt's radio. While in port, Mac undertook some essential
lastminute fixit projects. After Hilo, there would be no other ports of call for a long
time. They would have to rely entirely on the supplies and equipment they took to
Palmyra. More than one friend had teased Mac and Muff about the large supply
