Go Behind the Scenes
For fans and book clubs, go behind the scenes to explore resources and insights about what inspired No Motive in Murdoch.
Real-Life Inspiration for the Book
No Motive in Murdoch is based on true-crime events that took place in our hometown of Clifton, Texas in the mid-1980s. While the book was going to print (and unbeknownst to us), ProPublica Senior Reporter and New York Times Magazine contributor Pamela Colloff was developing a riveting series, "Blood Will Tell," that explores what happened in Clifton decades ago.
