The extraordinary true story of the Canoe Man, John Darwin, and his wife Anne Darwin, who together committed one of the most elaborate, devastating and surreal frauds of all time. Faking his death in a canoe accident off the coast of Seaton Carew in North East England, John lived for five years, undetected, in a bedroom connected to his wife’s bedroom. They both reaped the rewards of their life insurance and mapped out a new life together in Panama. All the while, their two adult children believed John was dead. A darkly comic true crime story of a coercive marriage and unforgivable betrayal.
