In Cold Blood by Truman Capote

I'm glad to have finally read In Cold Blood, which tells of the murder of the Clutter family in Holcomb, Kansas, committed by two parolees. The bird's eye view provided of residents within the Holcomb community, law enforcement members assigned to the case, and, especially, the two men convicted of the murder, allow the reader to delve deep into the characters' thought processes. Definitely a good read if you are into journalistic fiction, crime novels, and/or psychological thrillers.
