BLOOD ON THEIR HANDS, by Mandy Matney releases November 14th 
Mandy Matney’s highly anticipated book, Blood On Their Hands, will be released November 14, 2023. In this compelling work of investigative journalism, she exposes a network of horrific crimes perpetrated by Alex Murdaugh and others. The book acts as an excoriation of the “good ole boy” systems that enabled this network of criminals to operate. Through her relentless pursuit of truth, Matney delivers a captivating narrative that continues to unfold.
Mandy’s new book is about the challenges journalists face and lessons to overcome them so that public agencies can be held accountable. The Fall of the Murdaugh Dynasty is an example of what’s possible if journalists, public agencies and communities abandon fear and stand up to institutional corruption for victims.
