"The most shocking sentence in the book concerned Kate's feelings toward Snr. Amaral so when I googled the name and discovered The Truth of the Lie, things fell into place. madeleine is clearly written as a reply, and it explained the tone of constant self justification.Honestly, how are you not permanently cringing in embarrassment, Tony? This is the least convincing disguise since Margaret Thatcher pretended to be a human
The contrast between the two books became a reason to seek the truth, whatever it might be. I have watched all the "True Story of Madeleine McCann" videos of Richard D. Hall and many others on YouTube. I've visited a number of blogs where allegiances are easy to divine. As perhaps the most informative, I joined this forum to learn more. Thanks to the efforts of others concerned as I now am about this sad case, for the many questions I've asked myself after reading Kate's book there seems to be an answer. Even for apparently inconsequential things as pink trainers, and a dog attack.
I have since reread madeleine, and with the benefit of additional information, each page is a revelation.
I'm still reading, still learning, and wanted to say Thank You to the founders of the site for this invaluable resource and to its many knowledgeable contributors. Certainly I have not found The Complete Mystery of Madeleine McCann a "cesspit" as consistently labelled by one prominent blogger. Every thread I've read contains reasoned opinions, and views expressed without abuse. I think any fairminded person can see which purported theories hold water."
However, you have convinced Verdi, who normally sneers at any newcomer
