Editorial Reviews

Review

"This is a fascinating collage of highly provocative interpretations relative to the never-ending Earhart enigma; recommended for history and aviation enthusiasts, conspiracy theorists, lay readers, and public libraries." —John Carver Edwards, formerly with Univ. of Georgia Libs. (Library Journal)

"The sound structure of James’s argument—combined with reams of government documents, eyewitness accounts, and newspaper clippings from the period—makes for a surprisingly convincing case....This book is best suited for anyone interested in aviation, WWII, or the mystery surrounding Amelia Earhart’s fate." (Publishers Weekly)

This guy Jameson cut and pasted from several other books on Earhart - mostly bad books on Earhart. There is not a bit of original research. There is no original source material to back up his claims. Jameson quotes one researcher (Bowman) multiple times. That researcher told me, Jameson never contacted him nor discussed his views regarding the Earhart disappearance. The author wrote several paragraphs near the beginning of the book in which repeats the same information almost word for word. Lastly, the supposition that Earhart came back to the United States with a new identify was debunked 40 years ago.

Way overpriced for the rather short book. All that was done was an elaboration of a previous author on the subject. Nothing new about the whole thing was written but he is making a good profit on it. Very disappointed. Would not recommend for anybody else to buy it.

Biographer W. C. Jameson has written a fascinating and comprehensive rebuttal to the official account of Amelia Earhart's disappearance and death at sea in 1937. It is neither the first nor probably the last piece to refute the government's continued effort to portray the tragic consequence of Amelia's effort to become the first aviatrix to circle the globe.

In far less that 200 pages, Jameson ticks off a dozen contradictions and supplies concrete evidence that: she was on a spy mission for the War Department, she and her navigator crash landed on a Japanese-occupied island when they ran out of fuel, that they and their plane were recovered by the Japanese, that after internment until the end of WW2 they were repatriated to the States, that she led a secret life for decades, that many files pertaining to her flight and disappearance remain top secret after ninety years ... and more details beyond these. His story gets more arcane. Special cameras were installed in her plane by the Navy to photograph Japanese held islands where naval and aviation facilities were already built or being constructed. That Amelia wasn't lost (her navigator was highly respected) and her garbled radio messages asking for directions were staged.

A mountain of fascinating facts for which the author provides little or no corroboration. There are no footnotes or source notes and not even an index. The bibliography is a scanty list of obscure volumes hardly connected to the facts they are representing. One is a book by a California gent who wrote decades after the fact, recalling sights he witnessed as a fifteen year old boy. About the same for an island lad who witnessed the two aviators being taken, handcuffed aboard a Japanese ship and a battered plane hoisted on a raft that the ship towed away.

This book begins by discussing the story of Amelia Earhart beginning with her birth in Atchison, Kansas and her eventual disappearance. That being said, the author uses evidence that would not hold up in a court of law. He discusses an argument between two people close to Earhart who claimed he heard Earhart's husband get into a fight with someone and threaten to make them disappear. This evidence is hearsay. There is no proof it actually occurred. The latter half of this book can be considered fiction.

The entire point of this book is that Earhart was taken prisoner and lived in China until 1945, when she was seen dressed as a nun (BTW she was 2" shorter than she was as Earhart, but never mind that pesky detail) and made her way back to the US as Irene Bolam. You can do a fast search for Irene Bolam on ancestry.com and find her living in NJ in 1930!!! A previous book on this topic (Klaas & Gervais, 1970) was pulled from the shelves by the publisher: Bolam sued McGraw (publisher) and received a tidy settlement out of court. Poor research.

“Most “authorized” inquiries, those supported by the U.S. government, into the disappearance of Amelia Earhart and Fred Noonan have been constructed around the belief that the Electra was close to Howland Island but ran out of fuel and crashed into the Pacific Ocean. Given that Earhart was on a special mission for the U.S. government, several alternative theories have been given attention over the decades following the disappearance. The more researchers and others among the curious have looked into what was being described as a mysterious disappearance, the more questions were raised. Among them were several related to the destination of record—Howland Island.” – page 68

For nearly eight decades controversy has swirled around the disappearance of aviatrix Amelia Earhart and her navigator Fred Noonan. For many, there has always been the nagging suspicion that the American government simply was not telling the truth about just went down in the Pacific in July 1937. In the decades immediately following the incident a number of books were published about the subject. Most tended to confirm the official version of these events. However, since the dawn of the internet Earhart researchers and enthusiasts have been able to posit theories and share important new information. Over the past several decades a number of scholars have written books challenging the conventional wisdom. Now in 2016 the award-winning author W.C. Jameson offers his take on what really happened in his riveting new book “Amelia Earhart: Beyond The Grave”. What I discovered about this case is disturbing to say the least. The preponderance of the evidence presented in this book would suggest that Earhart and Noonan were nowhere near Howland Island when their plane came down.
