The news about the case startled me, especially the possibility of the parents involvement. I saw the chronic resistance of the McCanns to everything that contradicted their own version of events, using financial and media resources that, here, had never been seen. And I noticed one of the PJ inspectors who sacrificed his career on behalf of what the investigation had obtained.
Gonçalo Amaral expressed his opinion in a book. The McCanns were able to make a Portuguese Court to prohibit it. An Englishman, John Aikin, once said, to choose a good book, look in an inquisitor’s prohibited list.
But Amaral is not an easy man to silence - and a new book is already here.
