Blood and Money: The Classic True Story of Murder, Passion, and Power

'“Un-put-downable.” —People   “Thompson’s uncanny skill at evoking a sense of place still had the power to shock me years after I read Blood and Money. . . . Remarkable.” —Ann Rule, bestselling author of The Stranger Beside Me   “An extraordinary book. So absorbing and so suspenseful that even the most jaded reviewer will find it difficult to put down. In comparison, In Cold Blood seems shallow.” —TheWashington Post Book World   “A thoroughly absorbing epic of revenge. It has, as they say, everything—from gossip to grisliness, from savagery to suspense.” —The New York Times   “Required reading.” —Houston Chronicle   “A brilliant work of reportage.” —Larry McMurtry, Pulitzer Prize–winning author of Lonesome Dove   “Thompson has done a terrific job on this gaudy story, which can hardly be surpassed for crass opulence, crude energy, and morbid fascination.” —Newsweek   “The most gripping reading of the year.” —Los Angeles Times   “A massive, detailed book . . . [that] reads like a novel. . . . Thompson has, one feels, presented it fairly, dispassionately and skillfully. He may have a bestseller on his hands.” —The New York Times Book Review   “The most complex and interesting of any Texas murder except the Kennedy assassination. Thompson has done a superb job.” —Dallas Times Herald   “The legal reverberations of these events are still sounding through the Texas courtrooms. A formidable nonfiction thriller.” —San Francisco Chronicle   “Thompson covers every twist, turn and dark secret of the sordid tale.” —Time   “The best [true crime book] I’ve read.” —Roger Ebert, bestselling author of Life Itself   “[Thompson’s] most assured and ambitious book . . . A drama as tight as a sudden adhesive tape over your mouth in bed. Nondecaffeinated all-night reading.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review   “The high society of Houston’s ultra rich is the setting of a spellbinding account of a mysterious death and the bizarre consequences set in motion by the murderous grudge it produced. A variegated, brilliantly woven documentary.” —Library Journal   “The suspense is continuous. What happens in terms of the law, punishment, and death could, finally, perhaps only happen in real life. Stunning.” —Publishers Weekly  '
