Is a book which asks some very important questions of the original lead detective 'Goncalo Amaral'. Questions we believe that if answered questions will give an insight as the real state this investigation was in right from the moment of its conception.
What the book does is try to gather all the disinformation surrounding this case into the one place and thus offering the reader a chance to see for themselves, how puerile some of the accusations were, in some cases, while in others, downright malicious, vindictive and malevolent and it also offers the reader a snapshot of how ugly the internet became in this case.
The book mainly concerns itself with correcting some of the main lies and myths, especially from those that feel it is OK to say what they like, even though they have no grounds to do so. Two main characters who feel it is OK to write these things without producing any actual proof.
This case has produced a witch hunt, where trial by media was in fact overshadowed by trial by internet hate groups, who have had these two innocent people hung, on lies and myths and not a shred of evidence.
It is a case that will make some people feel uncomfortable as they may recognise with a shock, that they may have been guilty of spreading the disinformation that has surrounded this case and which has seriously damaged the search for a child, who now the vast majority of people realise was definitely abducted.
The case has taken many bizarre twists and turns. It also has a former detective who is now trying to make as much money out of Madeleine as he can through books, TV programmes, radio shows magazine and newspaper interviews. Goncalo Amaral was actually sacked from the Madeleine investigation for making unfounded allegations against the British police and at the same time was dismissed from his position as Police Chief in Portimao, five months into this investigation, in effect he failed at his job and then went on as if he had a grudge to make as much money as he can. He is now using the name of Madeleine to further his own new career in politics, while he still has hanging over his head, the fact that he is currently standing trial over concealing evidence of the tortured into confessing to the murder of her own daughter, one Leonor Cipriano. During this trial Goncalo Amaral stayed silent and refused to answer questions electing to say that he did not recognise the judicial process that has led him to court!
