'In Cold Blood' Review
'In Cold Blood' is a tragic story of two men, Eugene Hickock and
Perry Edward, who murder an entire family in search of money and then find
themselves running from the law. While writing the book, Truman Capote
used only facts to create a novel out of an actual event. He had thousands of
notes on the subject, but his problem was making his book read like a novel.

similar to novels written today, and if it was published in
the 1990's, it would be just as successful as it was when it was first published
in 1966. Today big writers such as John Grisham and Patricia Cornwell
could be compared to Capote, but they do not use real world events for their
crime-fiction novels. This is what sets Capote apart from other writers and
makes him one of the great writers in American History.
