LONDON (AP) - The father of slain British student Meredith Kercher has written a book about the life _ and loss _ of his daughter in a case that spawned a media frenzy.

Meredith Kercher was found dead in Perugia, Italy, in November 2007 at the age of 21. Her roommate, Amanda Knox, and Knox’s boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito were convicted over her death, but their convictions were later overturned.

Publisher Hodder & Stoughton said Tuesday that John Kercher’s book, “Meredith: Our Daughter’s Murder and the Heartbreaking Quest for the Truth,” is a celebration of Meredith’s life and an account of the family’s “ongoing quest for justice.”

The book is due out in Britain and the U.S. on April 26 _ ahead of highly-anticipated memoirs from both Knox and Sollecito.
