This is one of the greatest non-fiction novels from one of America's most talented writers. Agent Al Dewey, of the Kansas Bureau of Investigation, has a crime to solve. A horrific crime - the cool slaughter of an entire family of God-fearing farming folk. Blood and hair all over the walls, and only a few dollars missing. All Agent Dewey has are two footprints, four dead bodies and a whole lots of questions, none with easy answers. Truman Capote's brilliant reconstruction of the events and consequences of the murderous November night in 1959 is a superb and gripping mix of journalistic skill and sheer imaginative power.

 A piece of literary brilliance!

You need to read this book. I could not put this book down, literally. Capote is a genius. He sets the scene brilliantly and the novel just pings along at a terrific pace. The fact the story is based around true events, makes this book all the more brilliant. If you do read this book, i would strongly recommend watching the film 'Capote' afterwards with Seymour-Hoff in the main role. Absolutely superb and just how i imagined it from the book. You need this book in your life, a classic.

although a kind of documentary about a murder case, it's not merely a bunch of facts that are delivered. the accomplishment of this book lies in the fact that capote has woven a novel around it, so this accounts reads as a kind of thriller. so this makes it a rather exclusive sort of book, certainly for its time. and since followed by a couple of other authors, but here's the source and the original.

Truman Capote's In Cold Blood tells the true story of multiple murders in a small town in America and the consequences of it. Capote does a wonderful job of setting the scene as well as crafting believable characters who are very human despite the monstrosities they have committed. It never drops its pace and tells a believable and chilling tale that deserves it's place among many literary masterpieces. Capote is a genuine genius.
