After much anticipation our newest title Blood Beneath My Feet: The Journey of a Southern Death Investigator is HERE! While the book officially drops on July 3rd and is only available for pre-order at Books-A-Million, Consortium Books, Walmart.com, Sam’s Book Club, and Amazon, you can now order the books from Feral House directly and we will send them on over. Blood Beneath My Feet is not CSI fluff or singularly focused crime stories as much as it is about the price paid for staring death in the eyes over a life time.
“A new story teller rises in the southern gothic style.
At times harsh and abrasive, at others poignant and moving,
Morgan has the capacity to aggravate and humble you within
the same account. In chapter after chapter, he details the impact
of death on the loved ones left behind and on those who must
investigate the tragedies. His powerful memoir attests to the
deep, dark waters through which death investigators often navigate.”
—Mary H. Manhein ? Forensic Anthropologist and Director, LSU FACES Laboratory,
Author of The Bone Lady and Trail of Bones
Have you ever been locked in a cooler with piles of decomposing humans for so long that you had to shave all the hair off your body in order to get rid of the smell? Joseph Scott Morgan did. Have you ever lit a Marlboro from the ignited gas of a bloated dead man’s belly? Joseph Scott Morgan has. Have you ever wept over a dead dog while not giving a shit about the dead owner laying next him? Morgan did. Were you named after a murder victim? Joseph Scott Morgan was.
This isn’t Hollywood fantasy—it’s the true story of a boy born into the deprivations of a white trash trailer park who as an adult gets further involved in the desperate backdoor sagas of the “new South.” No hot blondes here, just maggots, grief, and the truth about forensics and death investigation.
