INSCRIBED and SIGNED by the author to his lawyer on the first blank: "for that admirable attorney/Elbert Robinson/from his client and friend/Truman Capote."

Synopsis

In Cold Blood is a 1966 book by American author Truman Capote.

When Capote learned of the quadruple murder before the killers were captured, he decided to travel to Kansas and write about the crime.
