The DCA Book Club is delighted to present Joan Lownds, author of “Man Overboard”, on December 18th at 10:00am.
“Man Overboard” tells the inside story of one of America’s most notorious murder cases in decades – the “honeymoon cruise murder” - providing unprecedented insight into the death of Greenwich native George Allen Smith IV on his honeymoon. Joan offers an extraordinary look into a case that has captured the public imagination and raised provocative questions about the unregulated cruise industry, leading directly to the historic Cruise Vessel Security and Safety Act.
Joan Lownds, a first rate investigator for the Greenwich Post and other Connecticut publications, has covered the honeymoon cruise murder since it broke. When George Smith was murdered in July, 2005, his homicide led her to investigate the unregulated, $40-billion a year cruise industry in a series of newspaper articles, forming the basis of this book.
