about this book

This is a new edition of Capote's true crime masterpiece: the riveting re-creation of the brutal slaying of the Clutter family of Holcomb, Kansas.  As 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.



"The best documentary account of an American crime ever written...The book chills the blood and exercises the intelligence...harrowing."--The New York Review of Books
