Her new book, The Unveiling: A Mother’s Reflection on Murder, Grief, and Trial Life is about the murder of her son, Florida Law Professor Dan Markel. Ruth hopes to use her platform and the media coverage inevitable around Dan’s case to make sense of, provide consolation and counsel for a horrific and powerlessness situation. And that her story will help others through the experiences of their grief from murders, victims of violence and grandparent alienation.
Due to the circumstances surrounding the murder she has appeared on 20/20 ABC, Inside Edition, and Dateline NBC, and participated in the hit podcast Over My Dead Body, by Wondery.
