Kampuchea...the mysteries of the Foxy Lady here
Foxy Lady is the story of nine western sailors, one Canadian, on the yacht Foxy Lady -- captured off Cambodia in 1978. All aboard were eventually killed by the Khmer Rouge. The author is long-time Dispatches contributor Dave Kattenburg, who lives in Winnipeg.
He read several passages for Dispatches from the pages of Foxy Lady: Truth, Memory & The Death Of Western Yachtsmen In Democratic Kampuchea
Dave's first visit to the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum.

Dave writes of his book:
It's an investigative journalist's account of one of the Twentieth Century's most intriguing and hitherto unexplored footnotes: the murder of four Americans, two Aussies, a New Zealander, Englishman and Canadian by Cambodia's Khmer Rouge.
B.C.'s Stuart Glass was the KR's only Canadian victim. Against the backdrop of Stu's adventure travels and untimely death (he was the lucky one ... spared the horrors of S-21 by getting shot on the little yacht), Foxy Lady also recounts the rise and fall of Democratic Kampuchea and its internal security apparatus.
Foxy Lady tells a timely story. Democratic Kampuchea's four surviving chiefs -- Khieu Samphan, Ieng Sary, Ieng Thirith and "Brother Number Two" Nuon Chea -- have just been indicted on a variety of grave charges. Nuon was the one who ordered the last of S-21's "Western" victims to be killed and their bodies incinerated. Foxy Lady is the first book to be published on the horrors of S-21, following the trial and conviction of S-21 Chairman Kaing Guek Eav (Duch). A sea of details here, never before synthesized in book form.
