In Cold Blood

Author: Truman Capote

Publisher: Penguin Group (UK) (1965)

Blood all over the walls, the telephone lines cut, and only a few dollars stolen.

Truman Capote’s detailed reconstruction of the events and consequences of that fateful night, is a chilling, gripping mix of journalistic skill and imaginative power.
