Within hours of the death of Princess Diana, conspiracy theories began to fly thickly across the Internet. Within 10 days, a book called Who Killed Diana? was on the bookshelves in Cairo, claiming that the princess and her boyfriend Dodi Fayed were assassinated by the British government to ensure that neither Diana, her sons, nor any future children would convert to Islam. In our conspiracy-obsessed age, such a scenario seems as likely as any other currently making the rounds, be it the faked deaths of Elvis and Jim Morrison or aliens stockpiled in a government warehouse, but as authors Thomas Sancton (the Time magazine Paris bureau chief) and Scott MacLeod (the magazine's Middle East correspondent) point out in exhaustive detail, the fatal car accident was almost undoubtedly the result of poor judgment, coincidence, and plain bad luck. Sancton and MacLeod ... cover a lot of familiar ground. But they also serve as textbook models of methodical reporting--the kind I would hope for but not always count on, in the Drudge Age, from a newsmagazine.... the reporters stack their hard-won facts into neat bundles of evidence. -- Entertainment Weekly, Lisa Schwarzbaum

    Sadly, this book is flawed. Many key witnesses have been excluded. The fact that they are never mentioned shows the depth of the conspiracy to bury the truth. Cover-ups require a lot of clean-up, starting with the witnesses with the most damaging testimony. They must be discredited or silenced to prevent them from repeating their stories. It does not take a genius to analyse the story and the surrounding facts and circumstances and come to the conclusion that the accident was premeditated. Why has the driver of the Fiat Uno and his car never been found, despite the biggest vehicle search in history of French police? Where is the motorcyclist who was seen to harass the Mercedes in the tunnel? Isn't the fact that both are in hiding suggest that they had a material role in the accident? The French scorned the offer from Mercedes Benz to investigate the accident site. The French also failed to properly preserve it, by opening it to traffic several hours later. The rejection of Mercedes Benz to help reconstruct and interpret the accident stands out as a red flag masking putative collusion and foul play.Diana's death eviscerated the steep problems which would have faced the royals and England/Israel had she in fact married Dodi, or worse, become pregnant during the marriage.For comprehensive information, see Internet site [...]

    One has to be a buffoon to believe Diana was not murdered. The failure to establish a thorough going British inquiry clearly points to a government cover-up.Sir Randulph Fiennes was an officer in the Royal Scots Grey and attached to the elite SAS. He wrote a book (non-fiction) about a secret group of assassins and how they murdered people while making it look like an accident. Cars were tampered with and the steering/braking system was operated by remote control which could override the normal system via compressed air from a tiny scuba diving cylinder hidden in the engine compartment. It is possible that Diana's Mercedes was externally controlled in this way.

    It is always welcome to look back on a sensational event through the eyes of a respected journalist who happened to be in the right place at the right time.

    Thomas Sancton and Scott MacLeod not only present a well researched and highly readable journey through the details and and facts of the death of Princess Diana and Dodi Fayed that are known to date, but challenge their readers to explore the unanswered questions which keep reason for the accident a mystery. We have all speculated about whether the paparazi, the driver, or a second car was responsible for the tragedy but this book weaves the thread of their lives, loves, family, with the circumstances of their untimely death. I never thought I would have more questions about the accident after I read this book than before but I do. This may prove that the authors have done their job well to not only state the facts but describe the ongoing investigation. It is now our responsibility to demand further answers from those investigators. I enjoyed reading this book and would easily recommend that others do so as well.

    I have always been fascinated by Princess Diana, so I had to read the book investigating her tragic death. The authors supplied background information on Princeess Diana and Mr. al-Fayed and provided extensive research regarding the accident. I had some questions before reading the book, and now I have many more. I am anxiously awaiting the publication of the reports regarding this untimely accident.

    At last, someone has seen fit to ask more about the events surrounding the death of Diana, in the midst of beginning a new life free of the Royal Family. A MUST Read for anyone interested in reading about the events of that horrible August night that we lost Diana.

    Readers of "Death of a Princess" who are familiar with its authors' countless televised "no conspiracy in the death of Diana" protestations are in for a shock. Messrs. Sancton and MacLeod are playing a double game. They manage to serve their mainstream masters by stating clearly and repeatedly their conclusion that the Princess of Wales died in an auto accident brought on by a drunk driver and excess speed. Simultaneously, they reveal evidence for conspiracy that, in their own words, is "troubling" and "persuasive." What do they make of a high level of carbon monoxide in Henri Paul's blood? Of a British Intelligence warning to a "contact" not to follow Diana and Dodi to Paris? Of a post-crash burglary -- most likely by MI6 pros -- of the home of a photo editor who possessed crash scene shots? Of evidentiary stonewalling by the Paris judiciary? Of the probability of a Fiat Uno TURBO involved in the crash? We hear you, gentlemen. And we need you to continue an honest inquiry into this open case of possible homicide.
