Maddie 129



Maddie 129 is the name of the first book about Madeleine McCann. The little girl who went missing in Portugal over six months ago.The book was written by two Portuguese journalists: Hernâni Carvalho and Luis Maia. The tittle of the book comes from Madeleine McCann’s nickname and the number of days she had been missing before her parents went back to England. I found this to be very interesting because from the beginning Gerry and Kate McCann said they would not leave Portugal until they found Maddie. They also left for England after Portuguese Police named them as official suspects in the case.In a CNN London interview Luis Maia, co-author, said “This book is mainly about doubts, about contradictions - contradictions implicate lies.” The books is about looking at the facts in the case. Hernâni Carvalho, author, said “Speaking with the police, each nine of them told different versions about the same fact” The “nine of them” or “Tapas Nine” is the name given to the McCann’s and their seven friends who were at a local restaurant when Maddie disappeared.

According to the book authors the
"2 Samuel-Chapter 12/2 Samuel 12:1-25 " was the Citation of the Bible that Kate McCann was reading and that so much intrigued our Judicial Police:


11 "This is what the LORD says: 'Out of your own household I am going to bring calamity upon you. Before your very eyes I will take your wives and give them to one who is close to you, and he will lie with your wives in broad daylight.

12 You did it in secret, but I will do this thing in broad daylight before all Israel.' "

13 And David said unto Nathan, I have sinned against the LORD. And Nathan said unto David, The LORD also hath put away thy sin; thou shalt not die.

14 Howbeit, because by this deed thou hast given great occasion to the enemies of the LORD to blaspheme, the child also that is born unto thee shall surely die.

15 And Nathan departed unto his house. And the LORD struck the child that Uriah's wife bare unto David, and it was very sick.

16 David therefore besought God for the child; and David fasted, and went in, and lay all night upon the earth.

17 And the elders of his house arose, and went to him, to raise him up from the earth: but he would not, neither did he eat bread with them.

18 And it came to pass on the seventh day, that the child died. And the servants of David feared to tell him that the child was dead: for they said, Behold, while the child was yet alive, we speake unto him, and he would not hearken unto our voice: how will he then vex himself, if we tell him that the child is dead?

19 But when David saw that his servants whispered, David perceived that the child was dead: therefore David said unto his servants, Is the child dead? And they said, He is dead.
20 Then David got up from the ground. After he had washed, put on lotions and changed his clothes, he went into the house of the LORD and worshipped. Then he went to his own house, and at his request they served him food, and he ate.

21 His servants asked him, "Why are you acting this way? While the child was alive, you fasted and wept, but now that the child is dead, you get up and eat!"

22 He answered, "While the child was still alive, I fasted and wept. I thought, 'Who knows? The LORD may be gracious to me and let the child live.'

23 But now that he is dead, why should I fast? Can I bring him back again? I will go to him, but he will not return to me."
