    DescriptionNational Bestseller On November 15, 1959, in the small town of Holcomb, Kansas, four members of the Clutter family were savagely murdered by blasts from a shotgun held a few inches from their faces. There was no apparent motive for the crime, and there were almost no clues. As Truman Capote reconstructs the murder and the investigation that led to the capture, trial, and execution of the killers, he generates both mesmerizing suspense and astonishing empathy. In Cold Blood is a work that transcends its moment, yielding poignant insights into the nature of American violence. "From the Trade Paperback edition."

His other works of fiction include "Breakfast at Tiffany's," "A Tree of Night," "The Grass Harp," and "Summer Crossing," the author's long-lost first novel, which was rediscovered in 2004 and published by Random House in 2005. His nonfiction novel "In Cold Blood" is widely considered one of the greatest books of the twentieth century. Capote twice won the O. Henry Memorial Short Story Prize and was a member of the National Institute of Arts and Letters. He died on August 25, 1984, shortly before his sixtieth birthday.
