The book that inspired the successful BBC podcast Paradise - winner of Gold for Best True Crime in the 2020 British Podcast Awards

About the Author

Penny Farmer is a freelance journalist and public-relations consultant. With the assistance of her family and law-enforcement agencies in both Britain and the USA, she eventually saw the man who murdered her brother and his girlfriend brought to justice. In December 2018, some months after Dead in the Water was published top wide acclaim, she travelled to Guatemala with a BBC journalist and crew to record the podcast Paradise, which revisits the murders and retraces the last days of the victims and what happened afterwards. The murderer's son, a young boy at the time and a crucial witness to the killings on board the yacht Justin B., also took part in recordings for the podcast.


A real-life page turner more intriguing than anything on Netflix. The gripping story of a woman who turned detective to track down her brother's killer - nearly four decades after he was brutally murdered. -- Matt Nixson * Mail on Sunday *
[A story] almost too mad to make up, too good not to tell and which one day, no doubt, will be a film. -- Ben Dirs * BBC World News *
'[A] moving debut... This engrossing, heartbreaking story is sure to appeal to true-crime fans'. * Publishers Weekly *
