Years before the name ALEX MURDAUGH…

SPLASHED across major media outlets in America, Mandy Matney was a local South Carolina journalist with an instinct that something wasn’t right in the Lowcountry.

The powerful Murdaugh dynasty had dominated rural South Carolina for generations, and no one dared to publicly utter a harsh word against them.

From the newsroom to the courtroom to the kitchen-table studio where she recorded the #1 global hit, the Murdaugh Murders Podcast,  Mandy invites you to learn more about her new book, Blood on Their Hands – a propulsive true-crime saga, an empathetic work of investigative journalism, and an excoriation of the “good ole boy” systems that enabled a network of criminals.

award-winning journalist

Mandy Matney

Mandy Matney is an award-winning journalist originally from Kansas City, Kansas who has worked for newspapers in Missouri, Illinois, and South Carolina before launching Lunashark Productions and three chart topping podcasts, Murdaugh Murders Podcast (#1) Cup of Justice (#1) and True Sunlight.

Matney’s first podcast sparked a global analysis of the “Good Old Boy System” in South Carolina, the different set of rules for the privileged, laid bare. Matney’s approach exposed a system that illuminates the substantially different applications of justice for families without connections to the highest reaches of power.

Mandy’s Book Rec’s

PERVERSION OF JUSTICE

by Julie K Brown

Julie K. Brown is a tireless journalist and this this book was one of my inspirations when I wrote Blood On Their Hands.

I love how she recounts her uncompromising and risky investigation of Jeffrey Epstein’s underage sex trafficking operation, and the explosive reporting for the Miami Herald that finally brought him to justice while exposing the powerful people and broken system that protected him.

THE HOT ONE

by Carolyn Murnick

My collaborator, Carolyn Murnick’s memoir about her search for answers surrounding her childhood best friend’s murder.

A story of friendship with a tragic twist—two childhood best friends diverge as young adults, one woman is brutally murdered and the other is determined to uncover the truth about her wild and seductive friend.

JUST MERCY

by Bryan Stevenson

This incredibly powerful narrative inspires me to pursue justice for all victims.

It is a  powerful true story about the potential for mercy to redeem us, and a clarion call to fix our broken system of justice—from one of the most brilliant and influential lawyers of our time.
