Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Controversial and compelling, In Cold Blood reconstructs the murder in 1959 of a Kansas farmer, his wife and both their children. Truman Capote's comprehensive study of the killings and subsequent investigation explores the circumstances surrounding this terrible crime and the effect it had on those involved. At the centre of his study are the amoral young killers Perry Smith and Dick Hickcock, who, vividly drawn by Capote, are shown to be reprehensible yet entirely and frighteningly human.<BR>The book that made Capote's name, In Cold Blood is a seminal work of modern prose, a remarkable synthesis of journalistic skill and powerfully evocative narrative.

Synopsis:

Agent Al Dewey has a crime to solve - the slaughter of an entire family of god-fearing farming folk. All Agent Dewey has are two footprints, four dead bodies and a whole lot of questions, none with easy answers.

Synopsis:

On November 15, 1959, in the small town of Holcomb, Kansas, four members of the Clutter family were viciously murdered by blasts from a shotgun held only inches from their faces. There were almost no clues and no apparent motive for the crime. Five years later, two men were hanged for the crime on a gallows in the Kansas State Penitentiary.
