    It's full of resources - some of which are hard to find on the web nowadays. It's a very useful book.
    This is only my opinion

    Let the focus be on Madeleine




    Together we can make a difference

    Jayelles,

    Thank you. It looks interesting. Is this a book without an opinion or is Lakins of the belief the parents are involved?

    The book is very interesting, for it was written by a moderator on another excellent JonBenet forum (Crime & Justice), Peggy Lakin (poster name 'Little'), and several internet posters have added their input and research to the book.
    The more she dug into this this case, the more Peggy Lakin has become convinced that the Ramseys must be involved in the death of their daughter.
    The book contains a list of items the police removed from the house, it compares the differing time lines the Ramseys have offered in their changed versions of their story, and it also has an interesting chapter about the founder of Websleuths, Tricia Griffith.
    It contains Delmar England's very interesting and detailed analysis of the so-called 'garrote', where he exposes the contraption as faked and only done for staging purposes.
    Also in the book is D. England's analysis of the ransom note, and his compelling letter to the Mary Keenan (Lacy). Although what D. England has written can also be found on the ACandyRose site, I have found it very helpful to have it all together in a book.
    The book contains excerpts from ST's book and from PMPT, and quite a few news articles, most of them by Charlie Brennan frorm the Rocky Mountan News who has covered the case right from the start.
    Lou Smit's absurd intruder theory is pretty much picked apart by both Delmar England and P. Lakin (and rightly so imo!).
    There is info about the Ramseys' inner circle in JBR and a thought-provoking chapter 10 where the actions of the Ramseys are questioned. For behavior is circumstantial evidence too.
    Together with ST's book, Journey Beyond Reason is my favorite book on the case.

    I'm definitely going to have to get a copy. I can't tell you how many times I've gone to Google to search for info and came up with posts of Little's bearing articles and links and everything I was looking for. She's amazing.

    You can click on the thread at the opening of this site and it lists all the books. I would like to read Det. Arndt's version of things also.

    Hey same to you Solace...hope it's a good lucky year for you. I hope this book is more than just newspaper articles. That's all the first chapter is and it contains grammar and spelling errors and repeats some of the articles.

    I'm sorry I'm just a real spelling and grammar nazi..I used to edit copy.

    Yep, they download it to your computer. You need Acrobat which you can download for free. I am going to purchase the ebook and start reading. I'd like to read Det. Arndt's book as well and..well I'd like to read them all. But I still cannot get into PMPT..I've had that book for years but it drives me to try and read it.

    I agree 1000%. The interviews every chapter with people is just exhausting and most times not relevant AT ALL.
