A friend gave me her used copy of Danny Collins first book on the case. I wasn't impressed. So I don't think I will invest £3 for his follow up book.

His theory was that she wandered out of the apartment looking for her parents and unfortunately (my words here) she met an undesirable scruffy smelly burglar on the look out for a profitable evenings work who took her and abandoned his burgling plans, for that day anyway.

Didn't see this but stuck a couple of articles in the latest news bit about his book.

Might be more apt for here then...

I think this is the most prolific tabloid tactic at the moment, let someone else load the bullet and they fire the gun. So is this faux outrage just a way of getting the message out there that Madeleine really had 'gone', hopefully to a better place?

I've merged the last two posts with this existing topic.

I remember that when Kate's book came out it was stacked in Asda next to something about con artists on the run.

I'm a numpty as you all know, but I thought I did recognise the name. £9.90 on Amazon, think it's worth it?

Having read the previous posts again on this book, I have no idea whether it's any good! I'd say give it a go, though.

Is this right - re Danny Collins updated book?

SilverLining‏ @Ev3ryCloud · 1h1 hour ago

Replying to @AlladinNoons

Collins updated version promoting there could NOT have been an "abduction", is that the real outrage? #McCann

I've read it on kindle and I thought it was pretty good. There's a very detailed section on forensics, a clear explanation of the DNA evidence and I thought it was informative. I got in trouble on CMoMM because I quoted from it, about the apartment being cleaned 'thoroughly'. They didn't like the adverb, I seem to remember.

...There's also a chapter on the Smith sighting, which is  why I think it is disapproved of over yonder.

I don't know what his theories on the case are at all as not read the book or know much about it?

Wrong sticker on Madeleine book

Post  mumof6 on Mon 22 May 2017, 12:43 pm

I am obviously missing something here, is this really worth getting hot under the collar about?

Somebody’s in trouble for placing this discount sticker on Madeleine McCann book
Harley Tamplin for Metro.co.ukSaturday 20 May 2017 9:01 pm

Somebody's in trouble for placing this discount sticker on Madeleine McCann book
People said the sticker was insensitive (Picture: Twitter)
Shop workers have placed a sale sticker reading ‘when it’s gone it’s gone!’ on a book about missing toddler Madeleine McCann.

Stationery shop The Works has apologised ‘unreservedly’ for the insensitive mistake after a shopper spotted the awkward positioning of the sticker on the book.



Danny Collins’ book ‘Madeleine McCann: Ten Years On’ had been marked down in price from £7.99 to £3 – with the slogan visible right next to an image of Madeleine on the cover.

A photograph of the blunder was posted on Twitter by a woman who wrote: ‘Of all the price sticker choices.’

Madeleine’s parents Kate and Gerry recently spoke out on the tenth anniversary of her disappearance during a family holiday in Portugal.
In the book, Mr Collins, a journalist who wrote about Madeleine’s disappearance at the time, discussed his theory about what happened to the toddler.

He claims she was not snatched from her bedroom that night, as is widely believed, but instead left the room herself.
Of all the price sticker choices…


Merged with a previous topic.

Madness, all books get reduced eventually.  The Danny Collins books thanks to this nonsense has now gone up in the list at Amazon.  Was it a free plug for the book, or just something to get Madeleine selling papers again, who knows. 

Doing my head in all this rubbish they keep printing as 'news'. Mad

GM knows a thing or two about marketing:

Gerry McCann: “The iris is Madeleine’s only true distinctive feature. Certainly we thought it was possible that this could potentially hurt her or - he grimaces - her abductor might do something to her eye. But in terms of marketing, it was a good ploy.” (This is in the transcript of the Vanity Fair interview from September 2007 . Would parents do anything at all that would put their daughter at risk?)

 Gerry McCann: “One good thing to come out of all of this is that there is so much in the press, nobody knows what is true, and what isn't.” (Huh?)
