The subject of this work is crime and punishment; more specifically, the murder of the Clutter family. Truman Capote researches and includes every detail possible for his writing. He includes multiple life stories of the characters, the crime itself, the confessions of the murderers, the trial, and the executions in order to make In Cold Blood as credible as possible. He also very subtly expresses his thoughts and opinions on the punishment Perry Smith receives in court, death. Capote’s opinions on this subject throughout the novel gives the reader insight on how Capote truly felt towards the court's decision pertaining to Perry Smith and the crime he committed.
