Publisher's Summary

Looking for Madeleine is the not-to-be-missed account that the online haters tried to silence. Its award-winning authors, Anthony Summers and Robbyn Swan, feature in the Netflix series The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann.   

The audiobook: 

  • Identifies the blunders made during the police search for Madeleine 
  • Draws on confidential police sources
  • Analyses the thousands of pages of the Portuguese police dossier 
  • Pinpoints the misreading of forensic evidence that - for a time - turned Kate and Gerry McCann into formal suspects 
  • Follows the clues indicating that the McCanns' apartment was watched, that the apartment had been visited by a phony 'charity collector'
  • Reports, in frightening detail, on the many earlier sex assaults on British children in the area

Twelve years on, as Scotland Yard and Portuguese investigators continue their work, the Yard is reportedly focusing on a specific suspect. A senior officer told the authors: 'The case is solvable'.

A tragic story, still a mystery

What happened to little Madeleine McCann remains a mystery after all these years. Snatched from bed in the Portugal resort bedroom she shared with her siblings (who slept through the whole thing) while her parents were out for dinner nearby (checking on the children at intervals), Madeleine's disappearance captured the world's attention. I was always curious about aspects of the case, especially after the many bizarre suspicions, sightings and suspects in the news. Without knowing what is or isn't true, I felt this telling of the story was balanced and largely neutral, and put things into perspective. Having said that, there are many more questions than answers, leaving me to wonder if the truth will ever be known.

Amazing!!!

This book is amazing. It kept my full attention from the beginning all the way through the end. I would definitely recommend this book. The facts speak for themselves. Thank you to the authors for presenting me with the knowledge about the abduction.

Interesting

Rather long and hard to get though. I feel sorry for the parents, not to have found their daughter. It is very hard to loose a child. Whether through death or kidnapped. I believe it is harder if the child is kidnapped, as you have no closure. Cheree'.

Spoiler

This was pretty much ruined right off the bat by the author's fervent assurances that there's no reason to infer that any of the main characters had anything to do with the events described. So, what's the point of investing the time to listen?
