In Cold Blood: A True Account Of A Multiple Murder And Its Consequences

by Truman Capote

Crime | True Crime

'Dick became convinced that Perry was that rarity, 'a natural killer' - absolutely sane, but conscienceless, and capable of dealing, with or without motive, the coldest-blooded deathblows'.

On November 15, 1959, in the small town of Holcomb, Kansas, a wealthy farmer, his wife and their two young children were found brutally murdered. Blood all over the walls, the telephone lines cut, and only a few dollars stolen. Heading up the investigation is Agent Al Dewey, but all he has are two footprints, four bodies, and a whole lot of questions.

Truman Capote's details reconstruction of the events and consequences of that fateful night is a chilling, gripping mix of journalistic skill and imaginative power.
