The Hunt: A Kiwi Mum, her kidnapped babies, and a 30-year worldwide search
By Ian Wishart, George London
Paperback, 2011, 187pages, very good condition

'She was a former New Zealand fashion model and a diplomat's wife. He was the British WW2 fighter ace-turned-criminal who seduced her. She attended garden parties with the Queen. He got her pregnant, then kidnapped her children. It's the case that made world headlines, that captured the attention of Sir Richard Branson, and which forced changes to child abduction laws in Britain. Paulette - now living in a small North Island town - hasn't seen her son and daughter since they were snatched off a London street thirty years ago at the ages of 4 and 2 and smuggled out of the UK. For those three decades, after numerous TV appearances, newspaper and magazine articles, Paulette has never found out whether her children were dead or alive, or where they'd been taken. Now that's changed. An investigator's never-say-die determination has turned this cold-case kidnapping on its head: using a range of different false identities, he has tracked the kidnapper through Europe and the Middle East and pulled off the unthinkable - befriending the unwitting target by posing as an old friend, and even obtaining photos of the now-adult missing children! The kidnapper has even boasted of how a top police officer (an old military buddy) helped him escape Britain. The Hunt will take you to the edge of your seat in a gripping game of cat and mouse that spans the globe and involves phone hacking, corrupt police and the unmasking of a narcissist. Can a mother be reunited with children who don't even remember her? And is she ready for the backlash from a fugitive still wanted on kidnapping charges in the UK? We hear so often about missing children. We don't often get to hear what happens when those missing children finally turn up as adults.
