That's how I read it anyway.
Why mention it then?  Co-writer to me means exactly that - one who co-writes.  What was the alternative, to continue on the same principle but leaving out the names of the co-writers?

Judging by the interview posted by HiDeHo where the book ban was discussed, Pat Brown's theory is very much in accordance with Goncalo Amaral's 'The Truth of the Lie'.

You missed out the bit about 'it was my preference' which negates any fact.

Thank you Aquila. Pat would like to have had them as co-authors - whether she even asked them, we don't know - but her agent didn't agree.

I stand corrected!

I didn't miss the bit 'it was my preference' but admit that I most likely misinterpreted the meaning taken in sentence context.  Heaven knows, there's enough false information surrounding this case without me adding to it yes .

I'll relegate myself to the corner and reflect on my thickness..

I bought Chelsea's book which is very overpriced for the slim volume it is. I also bought the Summers and Swan book. What an idiot I was on both counts. I actually got kate's book madeleine for free as a friend passed it on to me.

I was taken aback by the spelling, grammar and style etc. I don't expect American's to be as good as us Brits re these matters (!) but I do expect them to use the spelling and grammar check on their word processing package.

yes it is a short read that might get someone who is only a little interested more interested and that it is good thing but she stretches her credibility (does she have any?) with various mistakes. Towards the end she refers to TWO children left alone in the holiday apartment. Is this another mistake or is she trying to tell us something - that Madeleine was not there that night, only her twin brother and sister?
