SummaryAdd a Summary
The year is 1959. It's a quiet night in Holcomb, Kansas. November the fifteenth to be exact. The Clutter family is just finishing up watching the evening news, and getting ready to go up to bed. They have a long day tomorrow: tending to the farm, going to school, or cleaning their large house. But, unfortunately, they would not even make it to the next day. In fact, they would only live for another few hours, all snuggled up in their beds.
A little past midnight, they would be brutally murdered by blasts from a shotgun held only a few inches from their faces. When the detectives arrive to survey the scene, little motive can be found. Only between forty and fifty dollars are missing, and few significant connections can be made between the possible suspects and the Clutter family.
They were the most popular and most highly-regarded family in their town. So what did they do to give someone a reason to murder them...

"The village of Holcomb stands on the high wheat plains of western Kansas, a lonesome area that other Kansans call "out there." "
