Description

National Bestseller 

On November 15, 1959, in the small town of Holcomb, Kansas, four members of the Clutter family were savagely murdered by blasts from a shotgun held a few inches from their faces. There was no apparent motive for the crime, and there were almost no clues. 

As Truman Capote reconstructs the murder and the investigation that led to the capture, trial, and execution of the killers, he generates both mesmerizing suspense and astonishing empathy. In Cold Blood is a work that transcends its moment, yielding poignant insights into the nature of American violence.

    In his manner of writing, and of course, in it's content, this book is reminiscent of Mailer's "Executioner's Song." It is a sad tale, so well documented and interesting, often spine tingling, and often mysterious. Capote takes us into the minds of all the players, family and law enforcement officials in the unfolding of this epic tragedy. It certainly reinforces the necessity of capital punishment when it comes to dealing with ghastly crimes, in my view.
