Mandy Wiener and Barry Bateman to Write Behind The Door: The Oscar and Reeva Story


Killing KebbleJournalists Mandy Wiener and Barry Bateman have signed a book deal with Pan Macmillan to write Behind The Door: The Oscar and Reeva Story, which will be published once Oscar Pistorius’ trial for killing his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, is over.

Pan Macmillan South Africa has acquired world rights to the book that, according to Joshua Farrington of The Bookseller, “have been sublicensed by Pan Macmillan UK (which will cover world English rights excluding the USA, Canada and South Africa) and Macmillan USA. The UK rights department will handle foreign language rights sales.”

Wiener, the author of Killing Kebble, an exposé of the Brett Kebble murder, will be writing the book along with her Eyewitness News colleague Bateman, who was one of the first journalists on the scene of Steenkamp’s shooting and who has been one of the stand-out journalists writing about the case on social media.

The book “will follow the background to the case, the events of the trial itself, and a broader look at violence and criminal justice in South Africa”.

Pan Macmillan South Africa has acquired world rights to a book which investigates the trial of Paralympian Oscar Pistorius, with Pan Macmillan UK sublicensing rights.

Behind The Door: The Oscar and Reeva Story will be written by South African journalist and author Mandy Wiener alongside reporter Barry Batemam, one of the first journalists on the scene following the shooting which left model Steenkamp dead.
