Please buy this book - help find a child,
This review is from: Madeleine (Hardcover)
Firstly I can't believe there are so many negative comments about this book..people claiming that this book 'doesn't add up' or the facts are misleading..this isn't a game of 'cludeo'..the whole purpose of this book is not to help you idiots try to solve the case and why do any of you feel that you have the right to have 'theories'..ex police officers or not..you should all be very ashamed of yourself.
This book is helping to fund a campaign to reunite a little girl with her mummy and daddy..for that reason alone, I ask that you buy it.
It is obvious from reading this book that it was not produced by a professional and that makes it all the more intimate, you really do feel the pain that the McCann's went through and continue to suffer in their search for their daughter.
If you are a parent, it is not an easy read, does it answer any questions, not really, I didn't have any to start with. As a parent it helped me further understand how precious life is and how lost I would be without my own daughter..sometimes it's easy to take for granted the most precious things we have it life.
Please even if you never intend to read it, buy it and help fund the campaign.

May I offer you just one contradiction. At about 6.30pm on 3rd May Gerry asked David Payne to see if Kate was OK with the children. David said he went to apartment 5A and saw three very happy children. Kate says she had been showering and when David arrived she went to the door with a towel round her and he didn't come into the apartment.
It's not a question of playing detective but judging if the book is likely to be worth buying.

L. Stephens says:
Of course the book is worth buying..it is helping to fund the search for a little girl..just accept it at that and nothing else. I'm not trying to upset people or get into an argument but we (the public) are not detectives or associated with the case in anyway..if you have a child of your own, just stop and think how would you react if you were in this situation (not that I wish this on anyone)..negative reviews and comment may lead some people to the decision not to buy this book..it may be their contribution that pays for that piece of information that finds her!

Dr Payne said he went into the apartment. He saw all of them in the lounge area but couldn't remember what they were wearing. He was asked specifically what Kate was wearing and said he couldn't remember. He said he stayed there three to five minutes.
Kate said she went to the door with a towel wrapped round her. He didn't come in and their conversation lasted about 30 seconds.

Chard, when I got up this morning I watched my wife get dressed. When I came home from work this evening I presume she was still wearing the same clothes. But if she were to walk out the front door right now and disapear of the face of the Earth I would have no idea what to tell the police she was wearing. I simply didn't pay any attention to it. Why then is it suspicious that DP couldn't remember what Kate was wearing? And it is just a matter of individual perception as to what counts as being inside or not. Just over the doorstep could be inside to one person, but outside to another. Nothing suspicious at all, ask any policeman, every case is full of such minor anomalies.

She says she'd been in the shower and wrapped a towel round herself to answer the door. If you called on a neighbour and she'd just come dripping out of the shower with nothing but a towel around her I think you would have remembered. Consider too that he gave a rough description of what the children had on.
