The 'used' copies of the paperback now available may be ones that were brought out last year at the time of the original hardback version. In Ireland I think only the paperback one was available for purchase from last May.

In which case they do not contain the "Epilogue",
So by a simple calculation that bit is worth £ 3.39 - £ 2.70 = 69 pence !
Cheap at half the price.

It has from day one been in the Tesco '2 for £7 or £3.86' offer!!! Would be good for reference but I won't supply a penny to the McCanns and I don't steal so, oh, what a shame - I'll have to go without. I think I'll live! Wink

Must admit to being curious if certain toe-curling and comments have been removed - has anyone checked out page 129 and wherever the "loving and pleasing her" comment was?

There is software to compare texts, if anyone has access to such - would be marvellous! Yes, I wondered too if we have been editing the bewk for them!
Certainly we've done a better job than CR! (I always like to think of a fictional character there, such as Kevin, the office boy - with a list of forbidden words and phrases on the desk, scrolling through the forum. Hello Kev!

Hi Rainbow-fairy,

Did you notice what the other books on offer were in the '2 for 7 pounds' bargain deal? Science Fiction? Self-Help? Diets are a waste of time? Romance?

Ooophs.....where have gerry and Amelie gone? lol! The wall behind looks so perfect! taking gerry and Amelie out would leave a blank hole to be filled, so fantastic job in filling the hole with a wall that looks like it is the real actual wall! lol! Oh and whats happened to the white rim around the pool lol!

Completely off topic, but I just noticed the bead in the childs hair.

KM somewhere remarks taking it from this hair. That must have been after the picture was taken and before Maddie went missing. The bead must have been around in appartment 5A, logically. And with it: DNA. So: where did the bead go? Did it show up in the PJ records, or was it woosh-clunked too?

Good question Portia which I do not know the answer. I'd also like to know if the PJ have the pink nightie dress (which to me looks more for sleeping in than going to a public pool) in this photo that Maddie is wearing....must have lots of her DNA on it, so where is it. did the PJ take it? Have they ever seen it in real life? Ive never seen it anywhere else except in this photo

The bead story only turned up after the photograph was published. I'm still convinced it's a younger Maddie. Not only should the bead have been in the apartment, the pink dress and the shorts should have been there too.
In the book I think Kate gets the colour of the dress wrong. She forgot the 'bead' too until it seemed a good detail to use? In fact it's not a bead but an elastic wound round and round.

did anyone find out if page 128 had been altered, as there were books on a table in winterspoons(made up name) bookshop yesterday and it might be a bit bad if some little kiddie started to read that page and got really upset and it put them off the "search"

Well anil392000, if not removed, its certainly been moved... There is no "haltingly, I told him of the awful pictures that scrolled through my head, her perfect genitals torn apart". I never owned the book but I'm certain it appeared in chapter 'Aftermath' I'm sure PeterMac could tell us. ?

How do you know it's been removed or moved rainbow-fairy? I did see on MM the other day a poster said it wasn't on page 129 when she looked in bookshop, but that means nothing as the paperback version probably different print set up, ie smaller or larger would make page nos different surely?

Hi candyfloss, not sure if my mistake (not clear enogh) or yours (skim-read). If you re-read the bit I've coloured, you'll see that I didn't say it had been removed rather I thought it had been 'moved' - probably for the reason you said - typesetting etc... I would think it a risky strategy to remove anything from what was, we were told 'an account of the truth'. Still, there can be many many versions of a 'story' - however the truth has one version and one only...

I just came across this on Amazon. An 18 page booklet. Not seen this before. Has anyone bought it? When was it published? Mods please move or delete if required.

Has anyone had a chance to compare the two books? Is it the same with the addition of the epilogue? It featured as 'no 1' in an airport bookshop yesterday and part of an offer of "buy one book, get second half price".

It was 2 for £7 in Tesco from day of release ~ obviously pushing the book hard, not expected to be a best seller!

P129 seems to have either. Moved location or removed completely. ~ I skimmed all of 'Aftermath' and I sure. Couldn't see it! Any1 brave enought to buy it? I'm extreme but I refuse to give K+G a penny Wink

I think p129 is the wrong page number . I guess this page refer to when K talk about M's privat parts? I have the original book and its defently not anything about that on page 129.... cant remember what page it is on, can check when I get home...

In my hardback copy, page 127 is the extract about 'pleasing her, enjoying her delight....' and page 129 is the bit about the 'horrible thoughts or visions' etc. A cursory look at the paperback version has different text on 129.

I can confirm that Kate's horrible thoughts is now on page 164.
My partner stupidly invested in the book for me.
