The author constantly refers to Perry throughout the novel every time Capote wants to introduce a new perspective and therefore this makes him stand out for the protagonist. For instance, the author provides details regarding Perry’s past. Perry recalls “Six of us riding in an old truck sleeping in it, too, sometimes, living off a mush and Hershey kisses and condensed milk… which is what weakened my kidneys-the sugar-content- which is why I was always wetting the bed” (131).

To start, friendship is one of the main keys in life. Therefore, friendship can overpower anything.

In the falling action of every episode, Velma always manages to explain the whole mystery just like she did in this one. In “The Beast is Awake in Bottomless Lake”, Velma explains that Julie was scaring people away so she could smuggle the stolen Klondike gold from the mines by shipping them underwater through an airlock. The thunder and lights were from the crates being moved through the water. Then the two henchmen caught it with nets and smuggled it without getting caught.

Hardly anyone seemed to notice him” (pg. 240 online).This description could have been dwindled down to just talk about the fact that there was a dead body, but instead Amir goes into great detail to describe and paint a picture of what the body looked like.
