Title: In Cold Blood
Author: Truman Capote
Finished: October 8, 2010
Pages: 384
Published: 1965
Format: paperback

In this true crime thriller, Capote traveled all the way to Kansas with his friend Harper Lee to research and  follow the terrible murders of a wealthy farmer and his family.

After hearing that Herbert Clutter had a safe full of money, the two killers go on a quest to rob. When the information turns out to be false, things go bad and the Clutter family finds themselves facing a terrifying death.

Not long after the two killers are found and put to justice. During his research, Capote gets the opportunity to interview them multiple times to get a better insight and truth to the story.

It is an amazing journey, hard to believe that this story is true with the characters being very real to life, horrifying and the risk Capote took in bringing the story to life.
