In Cold Blood

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Truman Capote

Narrated By: Scott Brick

Publisher: Random House (Audio)

Date: January 2006

Duration: 14 hours 30 minutes


The most famous true crime novel of all time and one of the first non-fiction novels ever written; In Cold Blood is the bestseller that haunted its author long after he finished writing it.

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.

    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.

    Great book. All you expect and a little more. I was surprised by the exquisite writing style and descriptive qualities. Capote paints a picture so well. You know this town, you know this family, and you know these villains. This book lets go of you slowly and lingers.

  • Nick Hardy

    Excellent story captivating , kept me intrigued from the first words read . Really enjoyed the narrator's tone

  • Deanna Ball

    Loved Truman Capote's writing style and language. I decided it was time to "read" this book after watching "Capote". I avoided it in the past, fearing it was too gruesome and awful. I think the writing was exceptional.

  • Martha Stephens

    There is a reason this book remains captivating 50 years later. In an age where we are desensitized to violence, this book managed to rattle me and seep into my dreams. Capote's lyrical descriptions and the way he weaves the stories of the family, the convicts, and the law is intoxicating. A must read!

    I have read this book several times and I wanted to read it again... a classic, unflinching look at a horrible crime and the men that committed it. Classic
