New Delhi: With the judgement in the Oscar Pistorius trial slated to be delivered on Thursday, a new book seeks to go beyond the facts of the case in search of a wider context behind the shocking tragedy and motive of the 'Blade Runner' in murdering his model girlfriend last year.
"Behind The Door: The Oscar Pistorius and Reeva Steenkamp Story" by South African journalists Mandy Wiener and Barry Bateman explores the characters involved, relates courtroom interactions and unpacks the forensic and circumstantial evidence.

The book, brought out by Pan Macmillan India, has details of what happened on that fateful night of February 14, 2013 when double-amputee Pistorius shot dead Steenkamp at his house near Pretoria and the trial that followed. It is likely to hit the bookstores in the first week of October and will also incorporate details of the verdict.
