Summary:

The most famous true crime novel of all time, In Cold Blood is the bestseller that haunted its author long after he finished writing it.

'Chills the blood and exercises the intelligence ... harrowing.' —The New York Review of Books

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. 

In one of the first non-fiction novels ever written, Truman Capote reconstructs the murder and the investigation that led to the capture, trial, and execution of the killers, generating 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.

    I really wanted to like it but it's boring. I don't know maybe it's just me but I could literally not give two shits about the perpetrators. Yeah it's written well blah blah blah.

    Story was well done but the reader made it to where I wanted to quit listening. Arlo Guthrie meets Forrest Gump.

    The depravity of human behavior lies just below the surface of social interaction.
