Dead In The Water [9781786069665]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
In July 1978, two bodies were discovered in the sea off Guatemala. They were found to be the remains of Chris Farmer and his girlfriend Peta Frampton, two young British graduates. Having been beaten and tortured, then thrown, still alive, into the sea, their bodies had been weighted down and dumped from the yacht on which they had been crewing. For nearly forty years, no one was charged with these brutal murders. This is the shocking and compelling story of how Chris's sister, Penny, and her family tracked down his and Peta's killer. For decades they painstakingly gathered evidence against Silas Boston, the yacht's American owner, working alongside police in the UK and the USA, as well as the FBI, until he was finally arrested and charged with two counts of murder in 2016. Astonishingly, Penny was able to track down Boston's son, whose bravery in testifying against his own father was the key to bringing down Chris and Peta's killer after so many years. Dead In The Water is the story of a murder almost unimaginable in its cruelty and one ordinary woman's unwavering determination to find justice for her brother.
AUTHOR: Raised in Manchester, Penny Farmer is proud to claim herself a no-nonsense Northerner. Graduating with an English Literature degree from Lancaster University she moved to London to study for a Postgraduate Certificate in Journalism at City University. Experiencing something of a baptism of fire as a reporter on a North London local newspaper at the time of the Broadwater Farm Estate riots in Tottenham in 1985, she learnt the trade and knew that writing was in her soul. It proved a good training ground but the appeal of attending extravagant press functions and styling photo shoots was ultimately more alluring, and she was appointed Health and Beauty Editor for Woman magazine in 1986. Working on the mainstream national title for five years, she developed a life-long passion for fashion and beauty. Penny is now a freelance journalist and public-relations consultant. Living in the Oxfordshire countryside, she considers herself fortunate to share her lived-in, frenetic home with her longsuffering husband Ben, her mother Audrey, her three grown-up children who come and go, plus an eclectic menagerie of visiting partners, friends and animals. Glued to her side, whether in the kitchen or by her desk, is her faithful companion Mungo - a sofa-loving golden Labrador who, along with Tinker the rescue Jack Russell and Rolo, the fox-red Labrador puppy, ensures that life is never dull, and that going for a walk is the best time of the day.
