Rhonda, James and Ben Goodrich are on their way to Paris unknowing what they are about to witness, and the tragedy that is about to befall them. When they arrive, pretty much immediately they make enemies from the French. A family is working together to kill Dodi Al Fayed, but they end up killing Princess Diana in the process. Chasing Diana is written in a screenplay format, and the scene continues.<BR/><BR/>Being pursued for the photo¿s that James has on his camera, they¿re now on the ¿hit list.¿ Jacques and Laurent seem to fail at every turn. When the crash and deaths of Diana and Dodi Al Fayed are announced, James and Rhonda tell their story to TV shows all over the world. In a way James uses the publicity to further his own acting career and is an all out glory hog even against Rhonda¿s wishes. <BR/><BR/>A year later the couple are still pursued, the story has been told from their point of view, and now the are about to stare right into the barrel of a gun¿ how are they going to get out of this one?<BR/><BR/>As I said, Chasing Diana by Jack and Robin Firestone is written in screenplay format inspired by their own true story. It was a little distracting, I think this should be written as an actual book as I wasn¿t really into the screenplay, it lacked the necessary detail to be able to visualize the characters at times. If this were an actual movie and I were watching it, it would be amazing I¿m sure. The story that is told by James and Rhonda is truly captivating and I can not even begin to fathom what it was like to be them although it was hard to tell what was true and what was fiction. The only qualm I have is the formatting, besides that it gives you a peek into what may have happened the day Princess Diana¿s car crashed. 3.5 HeartsWas this review helpful?

Where were you the night Princess Diana died? I was at a baseball game but 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. Chasing Diana is a fictional account of the behind the scenes look into the deaths with just enough truth thrown in to make you wonder. Cleverly written as a screenplay, the story kept me riveted to the pages. We learn how Diana¿s death and the media frenzy that follows does, affects a family that¿s already experiencing personal turmoil. Throughout the whole book I wondered exactly how much was fiction and how much was reality. This was the first screenplay style novel that I¿ve read and it easy to read. I recommend this book to anyone who had any interest in Princess Diana and those who want a speedy one or two day read.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
