One of the greatest non-fiction novels from one of America's most talented writers.

Agent Al Dewey, of the Kansas Bureau of Investigation, has a crime to solve. A horrific crime - the cool slaughter of an entire family of God-fearing farming folk. Blood and hair all over the walls, and only a few dollars missing. All Agent Dewey has are two footprints, four dead bodies and a whole lots of questions, none with easy answers.

Truman Capote's brilliant reconstruction of the events and consequences of the murderous November night in 1959 is a superb and gripping mix of journalistic skill and sheer imaginative power.

'The American dream turning into the American nightmare ... a remarkable book' --Spectator

About the Author:

Truman Capote was born in New Orleans in 1925 and grew up there, and in Alabama. After a regular job at the New Yorker, he published OTHER VOICES, OTHER ROOMS, his first novel, a commercial and critical success. Other novels and short stories followed, including BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S (1958), until in 1965 he published IN COLD BLOOD to a storm of controversy and yet more critical praise. He died in 1984.
