KATE McCann is working on an updated paperback version of her best-selling hardback book, Madeleine, writes Tracey Kandohla.
It is thought the new book, set to be published in the spring, will include details about the Scotland Yard review of her daughter’s kidnapping.
It will be published shortly before the fifth anniversary of three-year-old Madeleine’s disappearance in Portugal on May 3, 2007. The hardback raised £2million for the Madeleine Fund. More than 280,000 sold in Britain. Thousands more have been sold around the world in countries such as Australia, Spain and Portugal.
Kate hopes the paperback will be a hit with British holidaymakers over the summer. Kate, 43, a doctor, said: “Somebody holds that key piece of the jigsaw. I am hopeful that this book may help the investigation. It might prompt someone who has relevant information, maybe without even knowing it, to come forward.”
Her publisher Alison Barrow, from Transworld said: “Kate’s first book was a phenomenal success. It achieved astounding sales, especially for a first-time author, and it was the number one book in Britain for weeks.
We just hope Kate’s original book and her new book bring her one step closer to finding her daughter
