"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)

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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
