About This Item

New York: Random House, 1965. Softcover. Near Fine. First edition. Advance Reading Copy in self wrappers. Near fine with a small scrape on the front panel. Pulitzer Prize-winner for non-fiction. Capote's friend Harper Lee acted as his secretary during his investigations into the tragic Kansas murders and their aftermath. Basis for the 1967 Richard Brooks film featuring Robert Blake and Scott Wilson. Despite the scrape, a much nicer than usual copy.

Synopsis

In Cold Blood is a 1966 book by American author Truman Capote. The book details the brutal 1959 murders of Herbert Clutter, a wealthy farmer from Holcomb, Kansas, and his wife and two of their children. When Capote learned of the quadruple murder before the killers were captured, he decided to travel to Kansas and write about the crime.
