The Book of Matt

The story of Matthew Shepard’s brutal murder in Laramie Wyoming 15 years ago caught the world’s attention and brought about a national conversation about gay hatred in the U.S. Stephen Jimenez’s book, “The Book of Matt: Hidden Truths About the Murder of Matthew Shepard” tells a bit of a different story about the circumstances surrounding Shepard’s murder.

Jimenez researched the incident for over a decade and uncovered a story that was less about homosexuality than drug dealing and a methamphetamine epidemic  in the Midwest.
