In Cold Blood by Truman Capote - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of In Cold Blood:

Finding and convicting the Clutter killers.

My favorite Truman Capote quote from the book:

"It is no shame to have a dirty face. The shame comes when you keep it dirty."

Questions to ponder while reading the book:

Why do people kill?

Is there, ever, a psychological justification?

My review of the book In Cold Blood:

Painstaking detail.

Page Turner.

Some people are truly sick.
