M B Spears takes “UNSOLVED” to Florence
The popular book about the controversial death of former Darlington attorney Redd Watts and subsequent murder trial penned by M B Spears has been the talk of the town for months, and we recently received an update from the author:
“Since I released this book in April, I’ve been the invited speaker at 10 events in Darlington County, with more scheduled, but have turned down outside events. Hartsville organizations have been especially welcoming. The Local Author’s Expo will be my first appearance in Florence County with ‘UNSOLVED: A Murder in the Solid South’.”
“’UNSOLVED’ is a true crime account of probably the best-known deadly conspiracy in South Carolina’s living memory. Yet, in the 63 years since that dark nigh, this is the first book published on it – not the first written, but the first published. The story was long told in whispers.”
“As Darlington County knows, we were the chosen scene of the murder, which reached into all four counties of the 4th Judicial District and the entire state, especially the Pee Dee.”
Even now, mysteries remain, and not everyone can handle the truth. I would suggest that all who expect to be offended by either the facts or the rumors in the book avoid reading it. My sympathy is clearly with the victims, and there were many of us here. Victims want closure. ‘UNSOLVED’ offers that possibility.”
The Florence County Library’s Local Authors’ Expo will beheld on Saturday afternoon, December 12th in the Library’s Stukes Room from 2:00 – 4:00 p.m. At the event, 17 authors from the Pee Dee will show and sell their books, and meet with readers.
