Staff Reviews


After a horrific crime shocked a small town, the hunt for the guilty was on. After the arrests, Capote spent time in the town, at the trial, and with the criminals involved, hearing the stories, and observing the proceedings. The result of his efforts is this chilling, unique, and thorough examination of a horrific crime, its aftermath, and the people involved.

— Flannery

Description


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.
