I have some difficulties remembering the last time I read a book from top to bottom without interruptions. This book was written by one of the former Portuguese judicial police inspectors (Gonçalo Amaral) responsible for the investigation of Madeleine McCann´s missing that happened more than two years ago (03 May 2007) while in vacation with her parents in Algarve, Portugal.

Frankly I must admit I felt something was wrong with the investigations when no one suspected of any other scenario but the kidnapping after knowing that that group of parents use to dinner in a restaurant leaving all their kids alone sleeping in their apartments.

If one try to put himself in all those parents` position it is easy to realize that if some accident had occurred during the time they were at the restaurant they all would immediately feel guilty of what happened and I believe it is possible to conceive they could all try to minimize the damage doing everything to make it look like a kidnapping. Of course this is all hypotheses and does not prove anything by it self.

This book was written by someone who knows every detail from the investigation and even though he was taken from that same investigation and perhaps be guilty of some of the mistakes that took place during the probe (not the only guilty though) I do not believe he would bring to the "outside" facts that were not already in the investigation process. So it is interesting to know some of the facts that were determined during investigations which were never brought to "day light".

It is important to remember that those facts still does not show us exactly what happened to Maddie that night but one thing it is for sure: they do show us what did not happened.

There are several occurrences that happened both on that distressing day as well as on the following weeks that show how the kidnapping assumption does not make much sense:

The kidnapping theory was defended by Maddie´s parents from the beginning.

Among the group (in which the McCann´s family was part of) only Maddie´s parents declare having observed the open window on the children´s bedroom. The majority could not testify it because they only went to the apartment after the alert was made. The only finger prints found on that open window belong to Kate McCann´s left hand.

The only testimony made by someone outside the group which refer the open window was made by Amy, one of the educators from the Ocean Club (place where they were accommodated), who pointed the observation between 22h20m and 22h30m. So, long after the time the alert was made and does not prove that the window was open at the time the crime took place. It is also strange that after noticing her missing child a mother would have left her other young children alone in the same room (still with the window opened) from where the alleged kidnapper had taken Maddie.

The set of testimonials and testimonies show many inaccuracies, incongruities and contradictions. In some cases this could be seen as false testimonies. In particular the key testimonial to the kidnapping theory from Jane Tanner which was successively altered, losing all its credibility and becoming ambiguous and disqualifying itself.

There is a unlocated dead body which was substantiated by the English dogs (EVRD - Enhanced Victim Recovery Dog; CSI – Crime Scene Investigation = dog that search and locate human blood even in very small amounts) and corroborated by the preliminary lab results.

These evidences were found behind the seating room´s couch, beside the closet on the parents` bedroom, on a piece of clothing from Maddie, on the teddy bear (which was seen by all being carried by Maddie's little sister on the following days after the disappearance), on two pieces of clothing from Kate, on the car key and in the luggage compartment of the car that the parents rented several days after the disappearance.
