Truman Capote's first non-fiction novel. In Cold Blood is about the murder of a Kansas family, and the impact the tragic event had on the town. The most surprising thing about this book, was it follows the men responsible for the murders and the events leading up to their capture. Capote started writing this book when the men were apprehended, and during their trial. With accounts from both men about life struggles, fears, and remorse. Capote captures the sorrow one person can have on both good and evil. Beautifully written, the reader will not be able to put this book down, well written from start to finish.
Presents Capote's masterful account of the senseless 1959 murders of four members of a farm family in Holcomb, Kansas, and the search for the killers, Richard Eugene Hickock and Perry Edward Smith. Reissue.
