In Cold Blood

Selected by the Modern Library as one of the 100 best nonfiction books of all time From the Modern Library’s new set of beautifully repackaged hardcover classics by Truman Capote—also available are Breakfast at Tiffany’s and Other Voices, Other Rooms (in one volume), Portraits and Observations, and The Complete Stories Truman Capote’s masterpiece, In Cold Blood, created a sensation when it was first published, serially, in The New Yorker in 1965. The intensively researched, atmospheric narrative of the lives of the Clutter family of Holcomb, Kansas, and of the two men, Richard Eugene Hickock and Perry Edward Smith, who brutally killed them on the night of November 15, 1959, is the seminal work of the “new journalism.” Perry Smith is one of the great dark characters of American literature, full of contradictory emotions. “I thought he was a very nice gentleman,” he says of Herb Clutter. “Soft-spoken. I thought so right up to the moment I cut his throat.” Told in chapters that alternate between the Clutter household and the approach of Smith and Hickock in their black Chevrolet, then between the investigation of the case and the killers’ flight, Capote’s account is so detailed that the reader comes to feel almost like a participant in the events.

Operation Massacre

Operation Massacre

1956. Argentina has just lost its charismatic president Juán Perón in a military coup, and terror reigns across the land. June 1956: eighteen people are reported dead in a failed Peronist uprising. December 1956: sometime journalist, crime fiction writer, studiedly unpoliticized chess aficionado Rodolfo Walsh learns by chance that one of the executed civilians from a separate, secret execution in June, is alive. He hears that there may be more than one survivor and believes this unbelievable story on the spot. And right there, the monumental classic Operation Massacre is born. Walsh made it his mission to find not only the survivors but widows, orphans, political refugees, fugitives, alleged informers, and anonymous heroes, in order to determine what happened that night, sending him on a journey that took over the rest of his life. Originally published in 1957, Operation Massacre thoroughly and breathlessly recounts the night of the execution and its fallout.

In Cold Blood

In Cold Blood

I guess it's safe to say most people will have heard of the Watts case. Christopher (Chris) Watts... the dashing, seemingly genteel, affable man who murdered his entire family in a calculated attack that shocked the entire world. Shanann Watts... the pregnant, incredibly beautiful businesswoman whose life was snuffed out because her doting husband decided he wanted a fresh start.Bella and Celeste (CeCe) Watts... adorable sisters who worshipped their father, the very man who suffocated them both in cold blood using their comfort blankets against them. He then went on to stuff their tiny bodies into huge oil tanks filled with toxic crude oil.Nico Watts - Chris and Shanann's unborn son.No doubt, most of you watched the story unfold on the news, open-mouthed, in total shock. What could push a loving father to brutally murder his family? Surely there was some mistake? We all have preconceived ideas of how a monster should look-grotesque, hideously deformed, a crazed madman-not this handsome, mild-mannered, shy, polite gent who was often portrayed as the perfect husband and father. So, what the hell happened? During this series I will look at the facts, the police investigation, the evidence, hear Chris Watts' explanation and his reasoning then I will try to make some sense of what occurred during the early hours of August 13th 2018. I will show you what can happen when the general public take an interest, and how the discovery of the shadows cleared Shanann's good name. I will endeavour to present to you all aspects of the case, from the initial 911 phone call and how the investigation unfolded, to the first and subsequent confessions-all transcribed word for word (where possible) from actual video and audio footage obtained from the Discovery Files. The mere fact there are so many unanswered questions is reason enough to continue my quest for the truth. The general public may NEVER know what really happened, but I promise you, I won't give up until all aspects of this case have been thoroughly investigated.

In The Shadow Of My Brother S Cold Blood

In The Shadow Of My Brother S Cold Blood

Dave Hickock never pulled the trigger of a gun or held a knife to murder another person, but he was sentenced to a lifetime of shame, ostracism, guilt, and psychological anguish because of the actions of one man—his brother. On November 15, 1959, Richard Hickock drove to a bus station in Kansas City and picked up Perry Smith, a prison buddy. Together, they drove to Emporia, Kansas, and purchased rubber gloves, nylon cord, and black stockings. Before day's end, four innocent members of the Clutter family in a town across the state of Kansas would have their throats slashed and Richard and his buddy would be arrested and charged with one of the most brutal and infamous murders ever. As the brother of a cold-blooded killer, Dave's life would never be the same. In this compelling narrative told to Linda LeBert-Corbello, Dave shares his journey from the depths of a family tragedy to how he eventually found the kind of inner-peace that accompanies acceptance of the truth and forgiveness. I do not just want to forget and live happily ever after. I want to be forgiven. —David Hickock
