"Grips you by the throat from beginning to end."—Cleveland Plain Dealer 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 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.

“FINAL ARGUMENT” was written in response to VINCENT BUGLIOSI'S best seller “AND THE SEA WILL TELL” (ATSWT) which recounts the brutal murder and torture of MAC and MUFF GRAHAM on PALMYRA ISLA8ND August 29, 1974.ATSWT reviewed the supposed facts surrounding the murder of the Grahams on Palmyra, and followed STEPHANIE STEARNS (aka JENNIFER JENKINS) upon her arrest and trial for her role in the planning and participation in those murders. In his zeal to prove Stearns' innocence, inadvertently, Bugliosi set forth clue after clue proving the guilt of Stearns and her crime partner, Buck Walker. All of which were ignored by the prosecutor, judge, jury and reading public. Stearns, herself, taunts her pursuers with photographs and spurious log notes. (Most egregious were her August 5th log remarks about “drooling and dreaming” anticipating possession of the SEA WIND on execution of the Grahams.) Stearns claims to have studied mathematics, yet in her supposed log she cannot engage in simple addition. Time and again she is exposed as a liar and a perjurer, yet the jury forgives lie after lie all the while ignoring the honest and forthright testimony of the Pollocks (The LEONARDS in ATSWT.) and Mac's messenger, Curtis Shoemaker.Bugliosi's careful analysis of the tides revealed Stearns was lying about her activities purportedly occurring on the 30th and 31st of August 1974. Unfortunately, because of Enoki's refusal to allow Bugliosi's tidal data into the trial, the jury was deprived of this information. To an experienced sailor, Stearn's account of her navigational skill is grossly overstated to the point where reading Bugliosi's book “And The Sea Will Tell” becomes an exercise that tests one's patience. Her moronic pronouncements (all of which went unnoticed) regarding the birth of the Iola (for the most part wisely left out of Bugliosi's account of the trial) are absurd to the point of zaniness.However, Stearns murder plot was masterful. Her manipulative skills are unusually sharp as can be observed while she was at work on Palmyra Island the summer of 1974, and in her interplay with counsel and court during her murder trial.FINAL ARGUMENT exposes lie after compounded lie, set forth as truth in Bugliosi's version of the “facts” surrounding the murder of the Grahams on Palmyra the August of 1974. It includes substantial portions of the original trial testimony that were excluded in ATSWT. Bugliosi professing his belief in Stearns innocence is duped by his client. Eager to win every point, when necessary he shaves the truth. For the most part he does this by omitting critical testimony that proves the lie such as Stearns' patently absurd account of her sailing method re “leisure sailing”, or her improbable account of the Iola's supposed approach to Palmyra. So too, there is considerable variance between Bugliosi's cross-examination as revealed in the original trial transcript re Pollock and Shoemaker and his recounting this same testimony in his book.A careful reading of FINAL ARGUMENT answers these, and many more questions that should have been asked, but were not. Alas, poor Muff, her bones at the time of publishing, languish in the care of the FBI, forty years after her torture and murder by Stearns and Walker, still not at rest, forlorn and forgotten. Most of those that knew and loved her are gone and she has been shamefully abandoned by the sailing community.

AND THE SEA WILL TELL, written by renowned defense attorney and author of HELTER SKELTER Vincent Bugliosi, reconstructs the events and subsequent trial of a riveting true murder mystery, and probes into the dark heart of a serpentine scenario of death that began when four people found hell in paradise. It was the 1960s and two couples separately set sail in search of a peaceful life: a wealthy yachtsman and his wife, an ex-con and his sexy girlfriend. Their destinies converged on a South Pacific island hundreds of miles from civilization where a savage murder left two of them there forever. . . . "Grips you by the throat from beginning to end."

On August 29, 1974, Mac and Muff Graham, sailors from San Diego, were brutally murdered by Buck Walker and Stephanie Stearns on the island of Palmyra, located approximately 970 nautical miles south of Hawaii. Prior to making the voyage, Muff was haunted by premonitions that the trip would end with their deaths. Unable to convince her husband that a terrible fate awaited them, against her better judgment, she reluctantly accompanied him. Arriving at the island, with death close at hand, warned by other wary sailors, Mac, seemingly secure with his firearms, refused to leave his island “paradise” despite Muff's tears and entreaties. In 1981 the remains of Muff were discovered on Palmyra Island by passing sailors. Walker and Stearns, in separate trials, were tried for her murder. After two weeks of trial, Walker was found guilty, the jury deliberating less than three hours. A month later, Stearns, defended by well known trial lawyers Vincent Bugliosi and Leonard Weinglass were acquitted. There were several factors that greatly assisted Bugliosi in obtaining his victory. Judge, Samuel King, erroneously, weighed in heavily on behalf of Stearns throughout the trial. He granted a change of venue shifting her trial from Hawaii to San Francisco. King permitted Bugliosi to amend the complaint to allege a charge of first degree murder against Stearns and later, granted his motion to dismiss the murder charge against Stearns based on the Felony/Murder rule. He permitted Bugliosi to introduce impermissible character evidence greatly favoring Stearns and prohibited Enoki from impeaching the testimony of these witnesses. Another consideration that greatly favored Stearns was Enoki's ineffective prosecution. Enoki was not up to the challenge and was totally overwhelmed by the aggressive defense put forward by Bugliosi. Enoki never understood Stearn's role in the planning and murders of the Grahams, nor did he support his witnesses when under attack by Bugliosi. To add to the confusion, neither the prosecution nor the defense understood sailing, or the sea. The above factors, along with many others set forth, when combined with the onslaught of Stearns lies and machinations, left the jury awash in confusion and misdirection; thus accounting for the erroneous verdict. FINAL ARGUMENT sets the record straight, exposing the many lies Stearns issued in pursuit of a not guilty verdict. It corrects many inaccurate quotes from the court reporter's original trial transcript and reveals how Bugliosi won a seemingly hopeless case.

June 30, 1905. The hands of the vessel's clock slowly rise toward midnight. A beautiful, one hundred ton schooner named Olympia makes ready to sail out of the crescent cove of Eastern Harbor, located on a small Caribbean island. The voyage will be one of danger, apprehension and foreboding fear. The dim, quarter moon seems a portent of the terrible things that will take place aboard Captain White Bush's boat. The weather was agreeable, a medium east wind, a pleasant rolling sea and a happy crew and passengers -- eleven in all. The author reconstructs that voyage in detail -- the surprises, the struggles, the tears, the prayers -- and the ensuing horrors! In the tradition of his English ancestors and their fascination with story telling, he gathers some of the guarded tales recounting the episode he heard as a child, then solidifies them in an interview with an "Old Timer." And The Sea Shall Hide Them will carry you along with those unfortunate passengers and crew. His account will show what horrible and fateful things can befall anyone if they happen to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.
