. Ms. Cope’s latest book, Murder on The High Seas, The True Story of The Joe Cool’s Tragic Final Voyage
explores the investigation into the mysterious murders aboard the Joe Cool, a “ghost ship” – a luxury forty-seven-foot sport-fisher which simply disappeared on a sunny Saturday in September 2007 on what should have been a quick, one-way trip from Miami Beach to Bimini in the Bahamas to drop off two charter passengers. The young charter captain Jake Branam, his wife, his brother and a friend were never seen again. Ms. Cope has done an outstanding job of detailing the tragic tale as it unfolded in Miami, out at sea, in Miami Federal Court, and ending with a chilling face-to-face interview with one of the killers.
