Chasing Diana is a fiction thriller written about the night Princess Diana passed away in the famous car crash. Jack and Robin are witnesses to the incident, and what conspired afterward. However, they decide to talk about it differently. They create a fictional story and then ask you to read between the lines.
What then transpires is an explanation of the story beginning from the night before and events that happened during the day, subsequently reaching to the crash. The fact remains that they were key witnesses just like a few others yet when it came for them to testify, they were told that it was not necessary.
What I enjoyed about this book was the fact that it was real and did not conspire to create any theory or confusion to what already exists to be a debated matter, even after 20 years. They were eyewitnesses to photographers taking photos after photos while the princess and Dodi were dying in the car.
I don’t believe that the authors were trying to say that they had something more or less to offer as a witness. Why did the police not find it necessary when it came for them to testify? This is very questionable. Surely, when it is such a sensitive subject, and any key element or information could sway towards clarity towards the night, then every single witness should have been taken into account.
The literature was good however the book is a script. This may not be everyone’s ideal way of reading a fiction thriller. The structure could have been written with a better flow and connectivity to ease the eyes. I believe it took courage for the authors to let everyone else know what they experienced and for that, I think this book is special.
I recommend this book to people who love Princess Diana and want to know what happened on her last day.
