Overview

Cleverly written as a "screenplay novel," CHASING DIANA is historical fiction at its finest. Initially inspired by the events they witnessed in Paris during the early morning hours of August 31, 1997, Robin and Jack Firestone's compelling narrative does much more than shed new light on that late summer evening when one of history's brightest flames was extinguished forever. Using a unique mixture of truth and fiction, CHASING DIANA is a parable for our times. Vicariously told through the eyes of lead characters Rhonda and James Goodrich, CHASING DIANA is the remarkable story of how a princess' death rips a closely knit family apart... and the healing process which ultimately unites them. A real page-turner from start to finish, replete with mystery, adventure, intrigue, irony and the idiosyncrasies of the human condition... that's the unforgettable reading experience of CHASING DIANA.

"Gripping, Fast-Paced, I Didn't Want It To End! A Must Read! 'Chasing Diana' kept me interested from beginning to end… The characters are colorful and kept me entertained… The story line was interesting and fast-paced, keeping my attention throughout the book! I actually didn't want it to end… A page-turner from start to finish, the story is fast-paced, filled with intrigue and action. I loved the ending, which keeps readers on the tips of their toes!"
Shirley Johnson
The characters were well defined and the author did a great job in bringing forth their personalities. Although the father left a lot to be desired in the beginning of the book as far as responsibility and character, at the end he seemed to make amends of his ways... I also wish that I had known more what was fact and what was fiction... the storyline was adventurous and fast paced... It <kept> me reading, hoping I could find some clues... Good job! All in all, an interesting book.
Angel Lesa
Chasing Diana, written by Jack and Robin Firestone... takes you through the trials and tribulations of the characters James and Rhonda Goodrich surrounding the death of Princess Diana. It is an enjoyable story. Fast paced, intriguing, and keeps the reader turning the page. A new look at the death of Princess Diana, for sure. You will not be disappointed.
Monica Garcia
Where were you the night Princess Diana died? Jack and Robin Firestone were in a taxi in Paris driving by the accident that tragically took the life of Princess Diana and Dodi Al Fayed... a fictional account of the behind the scenes look into the deaths, with just enough truth thrown in to make you wonder... the story kept me riveted to the pages. We learn how Diana's death and the media frenzy that follows affects a family that's already experiencing personal turmoil... I recommend this book.

"A Total Page Turner!"
This book was a total page turner. The characters were easy to relate to and you could feel the emotion of their ordeal. I would love to talk to the authors to compare the fact and fiction that we, the readers, are faced with. It keeps you guessing and questioning even after you have finished. Awesome Job!
