Exposit Books is an imprint of McFarland.  Exposit’s initial offering, Finding Jacob Wetterling by Robert M. Dudley, was released for fall 2016. The book covered in detail the 1989 kidnapping, the 27-year investigation and its heartbreaking conclusion. Exposit’s offerings since have likewise featured true crime topics, including Lambda Literary Award finalist Out for Queer Blood, which covered the New Orleans murder of Fernando Rios.  In addition to homicide and serial killers, other topics covered include heists, robberies, abductions, kidnappings, missing persons, con artists, hoaxes, deceptions, organized crime, espionage, and forensics.  Exposit will publish a wide range of titles, eventually including biographies and memoirs, and books about sexuality and psychology.  Our logo represents the eastern hellbender, a giant salamander native to the streams and rivers of Exposit’s home in the Blue Ridge Mountains.  Exposit titles will reveal the unexpected beneath the currents.
