In Cold Blood

In Cold Blood, written by Truman Capote is a questionably nonfiction novel that encloses the true story of the gruesome murder of the four Clutter family members, lives that were ended by the barrel of a shotgun. The two killers were men with different backgrounds that came from completely different families, but both ended up in the same situation making this dreadful decision together. Capote keeps us informed bit by bit with precise details on each step the murderers take and which decisions the family make that support in the end result, the horrendous murder, and afterward, walk us through the aftermath and the precedents that lead to the capture of Dick Hickock and Perry Smith.
