This is the closest book to the best true crime story ever written, Helter Skelter by Vincent Bugliosi and Curt Gentry.

What other book might you compare Charles Manson Coming Down Fast to and why?

Three books come to mind! Helter Skelter, by Ann Rule, A Stranger Beside Me, the story about Ted Bundy, and Charles Manson and Coming Down Fast!

Coming Down Fast, Stranger, and Helter Skelter should be a part of anyone's library interested in True Crime!
