Editorial Reviews:
Review:

"[This] is the best documentary account of an American crime ever written, partly because the crime here in question is not yet a part of the heritage....But if 'In Cold Blood' deserves highest marks among American crime histories, it also raises certain questions. What, more or less, is the narrative intended to be: and in what spirit are we supposed to take it? While the book 'reads' like excellent fiction, it purports to be strictly factual and thoroughly documented, but the documentation is, for the most part, suppressed in the text....Whatever its 'genre,' 'In Cold Blood' is admirable: as harrowing as it is, ultimately, though implicitly, reflective in temper...."

F.W. Dupee, New York Review of Books, 02/03/1966

Review:

"'In Cold Blood'...is a masterpiece--agonizing, terrible, possessed, proof that the times, so surfeited with disasters, are still capable of tragedy. The tragedy was existential. The murder was seemingly without motive. The killers...almost parodied the literary anti-hero....There are two Truman Capotes. One is the artful charmer, prone to the gossamer and the exquisite....The other, darker and stronger, is the discoverer of death....He has traveled far from the misty, moss-hung Southern-Gothic landscapes of his youth."

Conrad Knickerbocker, New York Times Book Review, 01/16/1966

Book Description: Transaction Publishers, United States, 2006. Paperback. Book Condition: New. large type edition. 254 x 178 mm. Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. 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. In Cold Blood is the story of the lives and death of these six people. The reader is mesmerized with suspense and astonishing empathy as Truman Capote reconstructs the murder and the investigation that led to the capture, trial, and execution of the killers. It is a powerful story of inexorable crime and punishment, even more powerful for underscoring the awareness that it is reality, not literature. It is arguably Truman Capote s masterpiece.
