Interactive companion edition to “And Every Word Is True” by Gary McAvoy, featuring original primary source documents of the Herbert W. Clutter family murder investigation, produced by former KBI Director Harold Nye, as featured in Truman Capote’s bestselling book “In Cold Blood.”
The essential companion to “In Cold Blood"
A fascinating and deeply compelling presentation of the original investigative notebooks and reports prepared by one of the lead investigators of the 1959 Clutter family murders, Special Agent Harold Nye, as he tracked down the killers featured in Truman Capote’s book “In Cold Blood.” Rarely do true crime devotees get a chance to read primary source documents like this. The notebook pages—the basis for the author’s true crime investigative reporting in “And Every Word Is True”—are accompanied by helpful transcriptions, along with two gripping and highly-detailed reports produced by the Kansas Bureau of Investigation describing the case (for which the author won the right to publish in a years-long court battle). There’s also an interactive Timeline depicting the activities of various people and events related to the investigation, and a video taking readers on the cross-country journey taken by the killers. Highly recommended for anyone who has read “In Cold Blood,” and an essential companion to “And Every Word Is True.”
