Has anyone seen Danny Collins book yet called Vanished. It was supposed to have been on sale from the 5th of May but as yet I have seen no mention of it anywhere. Although I have the feeling there will be nothing new within the covers, not with the lawyers watching, you just never know what may slip through the net.

As you may be aware, this book has been advertised in advance of its release date for some time, so it's difficult to see what it can bring that is new to the case. I suspect it will follow the track left by Robert Downing. Anyway, we'll see...

Incidentally, would he have had to gain permission from the McCanns to use Madeleine's picture on the front? If so, that may answer our question about what the contents of the book will tell us!

I read a review that said although it was unofficial, it was straight out of Camp McCann, so I shan't be wasting my money on it.

I saw this book in Waterstones today and started reading it .

It is mostly written from a factual account but there are lots of interesting bits - I wouldnt say if he is pro or not - He does seem to have a lot of contacts and knowledge about the case and the area -

He doesnt state the case one way or the other - but leaves the reader to make up their own mind .

I sat down and speed read most of the book in about 40 minutes - wasnt too taxing.

Couple of points that jumped out at me - He states that the only blood discobered in the appt was minute spots and when tested was found to be from a male

He also thinks an abduction was the least likely of all the theories - but didnt rule it out . I didnt realy get the impression he knew one way or another . But i would say if you are interested in the case it should make interested reading

The book by Robert Downing is an absolute joke imo, it says in the preface " all information,including directquotes,has come solely from articles printed in the Daily Express and Sunday Express Newspapers" :roll: they obviously left out the bits that got them sued.
truth is always a casualty.

Just checked this book out on Amazon - 15% of sales goes to the fund, publisher John Blake has also pledged a substantial donation to the fund. In the preface it describes - "Mum and dad, the strong, silent heartthrob consultant Gerry and the cool and lissom Kate, beautiful in her grief, but never red eyed and blotchy. It is the stuff of fantasy with the frail mother victimised by a cruel and arrogant Cheif Inspector of police with a reputation for long lunches and throwing female suspects...."
It doesn't allow me to read anymore - thankfully, but I think we can see the angle the author is coming from :?
