"Foxy Lady "is an investigative journalist's account of the murder of four Americans, two Australians, an Englishman, a New Zealander, and a Canadian by Cambodia's Khmer Rouge. "Foxy Lady" chronicles the life and times of the Canadian, Stuart Robert Glass including his brutal 1978 death onboard a little yacht called "Foxy Lady." Stuart's mates suffered a worse fate--dragged off to the Khmer Rouge's Tuol Sleng death house in Phnom Penh, charged with being CIA spies, tortured for a few months, and then killed. Having stumbled on the story of murdered Stuart Glass, the author travels to Cambodia to watch Duch (the Khmer Rouge's chief executioner) testify, interview former Tuol Sleng guards, and investigate the death of the Western yachtsmen. But "truth" is elusive. Imperfect memories and conflation are among the most intriguing products of his two-year, four-continent investigation. "Foxy Lady" will appeal to students of Asian history, political psychology, and conflict studies.
