    Highly recommended read, and truthful

    This book is excellent and should aid the police in the apprehension of the McCanns...

    I am surprised that this hasn't been put on the telly!

    Well done and good luck getting the truth out there...

    I have also read Kate McCanns book it seems to be a far cry from the truth, just words made to placate people who might not believe the lies they have spread.

    Read it!!!! If they can't get it banned they will try and rubbish it

    A very strange network of power surrounds the Mccanns and getting an impartial expert analysis of the situation to the public is a feat in itself. The McCanns already used their £500 ph solicitors to have it removed from another sellers site. Just one little letter and "whoosh" it was gone! Of course they aren't ordinary solicitors they are Carter Ruck, famous for hiding the sordid details of Trafigura for their clients and even attempting to stop it being debated in parliament.

    This book is worth buying and reading as it is written by a criminal profiler with no axe to grind, just the knowledge experience and expertise to analyse the events on the night and the subsequent behaviour of the parents.

    Highly recommended !!

    Well worth to read.
    I wonder why this great objective opinion is making mccanns sweat.

    Really great to have it here, after Amazon "banned" it in request of mccanns and their beloved Carter Ruck.
    It's not the first book (forum/blog) Mccanns try to bully with Carter Ruck. They went great lengts to bann Dr. Amarals book about the PJ investigation. They lost, and are still not giving back his books. We will see them in court.

    Trash!

    What a terrible way to try to make a buck! All the info in this book is freely available in forums all over the net. What a rip off.

    a logical analysis based on the facts currently available

    There has been too much speculation about this case, often based on feelings rather than fact. Most of us are guilty of this because our emotions run high when a case involves the disappearance of a small child. This case will never progress if we let our feelings cloud our judgement.
    Therefore an analysis of the facts was long overdue and who better to do this than an experienced profiler?

    Pat Brown takes you through the events step-by-step, eliminating possibilities along the way, and coming to a logical conclusion. Please bear in mind that this profile is based on the facts currently available, and there may well be some evidence that has not been made public yet.

    I advise anyone interested in this case to read this profile. If you believe in the parents version of events, you will have a clearer idea of what Kate and Gerry need to do to alleviate suspicions. If you don't believe the parents are telling the whole truth, then this book will clarify which aspects of their statements contradict the physical evidence.

    Not to be recommended

    I have seen enough of this woman's work to know that I would not ever consider buying one of her works of fiction.

    This is a person who is definitely out to make money off the back of a suffering family,as apparently she has done before over other cases.

    This is a person who has not read the full facts of the case or given it very much consideration at all.

    This is a person who frequently appears on a very suspect facebook page whose sole aim is to bring the McCann family down and see them in jail.

    This is a person who begs these people on said forum to go and review her book and lo and behold they obey her and do so.

    What kind of person this is I will leave to you to decide.

    Garbage don't waste your cash on this

    Oh puleeze have you read this garbage?

    This "book" has been written form the mind of a so-called Criminal Profiler. The same person who has now taken out a lawsuit against the parents of the missing child.

    Go hang your head in shame you parasite..............this is all make belief.

    I cannot even comment on the theory of this person as it is just too ridiculous...............listen y'all, don't waste your dollars on this. It would be of better use in the bathroom.

    Keep taking the meds lady.

    Excellent review of the case. Confirming what the majority believe;
    1. The McCanns are liars
    2. Maddie was NOT abducted - she died in  apartment 5A
    3.  The McCanns or someone close to them probably disposed of the body some weeks after the death

    I found this book to be well written, well thought out and intel

    I found this book to be well written, well thought out and intelligently constructed. It leads the reader easily through what could otherwise be a morass of timelines and wildly conflicting/ever changing statements. The conclusion, right or wrong is entirely plausible and would tend to explain all the evidence, and in places lack thereof.
    Frankly I am astonished and more than a little horrified at the hatred and downright fury displayed in some of these 'reviews' and which is aimed squarely at the author. Hundreds of people have written books posing their own theories and opinions on crimes and never have they been subjected to such an onslaught of abuse. I cannot fathom how disagreeing with another persons ideas alone could ever create the profusion of intense loathing I have read here. I can only think that these people are either extremely close to the McCanns, or perhaps suffer from some kind of instability which makes them believe that they are. Very disturbing.
    Anyway, a good read for 'grown ups' with open minds and an interest in facts rather than gossip and (God help us) spin.

    Pat Brown, profiler, takes the reader on a journey to find out what really happened to Madeliene McCann on the night she vanished. While Brown never blames anyone, she does uncover various inconsistancies with the story the McCann's told. "The Tapas 9" are the 9 couples that dined in Tapas on the night in question. All 9 couples had young children and left them locked or unlocked in their apartments while they ate and drank. For me, that is not normal behavior but for some, I guess it's just fine. Having claimed they checked on their children in 15-30 minute intervals the McCann's realize their 3 year old daughter is gone. What Brown uncovers is how many strange and inconsistant stories the McCann's come up with. As for their friend who claims she saw a man walk off with Madeliene but didn't tell the McCann's because she didn't want to hurt them, is just plain crazy! I don't want to give away Ms. Brown's theory on what really happened so I am going to just say I highly recommend this book!
