Abstract:

Olathe, Kansas, was made famous by Truman Capote in his nonfiction novel In Cold Blood, in which he told the story of the Clutter family's murder in 1959. But few people know that Olathe achieved notoriety again in 1982, when a member of Olathe's growing Evangelical Christian population, a gentle man named David Harmon, was murdered in his bed, beaten so badly with a club that his face caved in beyond recognition. Suspicion quickly fell on David's wife, Melinda, and her boyfriend, Mark, student body president of the local Bible College. However, Melinda and Mark were never officially charged with murder, and they went on to lead successful and law-abiding lives. A Cold Blooded Business documents the shockingly amateurish police investigation, which was resumed in 2002, and provides fascinating character studies of Melinda and Mark, cold-blooded murderers who seemingly returned to normality after one blood-chilling night of violence. At once a fast-moving true detective story and an exploration into the darkest depths of the human psyche, A Cold Blooded Business rightfully deserves a place on the bookshelf next to the best kind of writing on true crime.
