About the Author
Raised in Manchester, Penny Farmer graduated with an English Literature degree from Lancaster University and then 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 learned the trade and knew that writing was in her soul. She has also served as an editor for Woman magazine. Penny is now a freelance journalist and public-relations consultant.
"[A] moving debut....This engrossing, heartbreaking story is sure to appeal to true crime fans." --Publishers Weekly "The gripping story of a woman who turned detective to track down her brother's killer--nearly four decades after he was brutally murdered. A real-life page turner more intriguing than anything on Netflix." --Matt Nixson, Books Editor, Mail on Sunday, London "[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 USA and Canada "This account by Farmer is both intimate but also the dispassionate, clear version you'd expect from a journalist."--OprahMag.com, "20 Best True Crime Books"
