Description:

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.

In her home on Empire Avenue, Donna Whalen was stabbed 31 times. Her friends, family, and neighbours believed it was her abusive boyfriend, Sheldon Troke. But the evidence is all circumstantial, providing a daunting challenge for police and prosecutors—and the course of justice takes many unpredictable twists and turns before the truth is finally revealed.

Description:

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.

Description:

Truman Capote’s first novel is a story of almost supernatural intensity and inventiveness, an audacious foray into the mind of a sensitive boy as he seeks out the grown-up enigmas of love and death in the ghostly landscape of the deep South. At the age of twelve, Joel Knox is summoned to meet the father who abandoned him at birth. But when Joel arrives at the decaying mansion in Skully’s Landing, his father is nowhere in sight. What he finds instead is a sullen stepmother who delights in killing birds; an uncle with the face—and heart—of a debauched child; and a fearsome little girl named Idabel who may offer him the closest thing he has ever known to love.
