Looking For Madeleine. Review.

Looking for Madeleine - Anthony Summers, Robbyn Swan

Source: Bookbridgr


The Madeleine McCann case is perhaps the most famous case of modern times - so thoroughly did it capture the world, and still to this day is talked about, written about, endlessly speculated on and with the latest investigation has been very much back in the media spotlight.

I've read a lot about it over the years, from Kate's book (recommended) to the Police files now in the public domain and Amaral's book (currently banned in the UK) - so I was interested to read this from Anthony Summers and Robbyn Swan as it claims to be "The most definitive" account.

It is definitely well researched and well written for sure. If you are someone who has not read a lot of the nitty gritty surrounding Madeleine's disappearance and you want a good overview with some added commentary I would definitely recommend it.

If you have already read a lot about it I'm not sure it can add anything new however - I found it interesting to see it all laid out in order and with a very matter of fact and logical viewpoint, and there is a lot of information in here.

Overall then a good, succinct account of the events of that night and the following furore and worth a look if you are interested in the Mccann case.

As a final note I would like to say that always, when I'm reading things about Madeleine, I try very hard to keep in mind that despite the endless theorising and genuine public obsession, the heart of this is about that little girl who went missing and so far, has not been found. Professional investigators claim that this case is solvable. One would hope for all those involved that this is the case.
