Reviews

"The terse, earthy tone and black humor read like hard-boiled fiction." - The Statesman"The book intersperses Morgan's real-life experiences from crime scenes with stories from his childhood in New Orleans in classic Southern gothic style that one author dubbed "Mem-Noir."" -Oxford American"...a great book utilizing traditions in Southern storytelling to appall and amaze. It is contemporary Southern gothic at it's best." -The NOLA Defender" ... it is easy to imagine Joseph Scott Morgan making a cameo appearance in Faulkner's 'A Rose for Emily.' Blood Beneath My Feet a sanguinary, though not at all sanguine work clearly functions as a 'therapeutic memoir'. With it, Morgan has pumped the old 'open a vein and start writing' axiom into a torrential burst of aortic hemorrhaging; instead of the usual razor, he used the Grim Reaper's own scythe on himself." Candice Dyer, Paste Magazine "If you ever had an interest in this profession (forensics), this is a book that will give you the cold, hard, unvarnished truth. Morgan is jaded, and for good reason."
