We Were Killers Once
By Becky Masterman
Everyone knows who killed the Clutters. But who murdered the Walker family? A thrilling novel based on the unsolved true crime that features in Truman Capote's IN COLD BLOOD
This is a work of fiction. But parts of the story are drawn from fact. In his landmark novel, In Cold Blood, Truman Capote made infamous the murder of the Clutter family that occurred in Kansas in late 1959. Fact: Dick Hickock and Perry Smith were executed for those crimes. Fact: Two months after the Clutter killing, the Walker family were slaughtered in similar circumstances in Florida. Fact: The Walker family murder is still unsolved. In this brilliant, addictive novel, the long-time cold case heats up. Becky Masterman imagines what might have happened then...and who will be the next.
