More About This Book

Overview

She is the most admired, talked about and photographed woman in the world, but her life is embroiled in trauma, betrayal and make-believe love. As her marriage falls apart and her divorce is mandated by powers she cannot control, she becomes entrapped in a nightmare, held prisoner by her husbands family, the press and unrelenting tradition. A trusted friend introduces the Princess to a master strategist, code named Puppet Master, who offers a beguiling solution that involves intrigue, deception- and a way out. The Princess resists the moral dilemma but, finally, her pain is so great she agrees to the plan on the condition that no one will be hurt. The goal is freedom and a new life in America; the terrible price, the loss of her only happiness- her two sons. The Puppet Master orchestrates the plot, but nothing is as it seems. Unforeseen twists and turns appear, and the Princess is carried along, unaware of the true plan. The plan unfolds across three continents. The paparazzi are fooled, the world is fooled, but then an unexpected love affair creates complications. The Machiavellian manipulations of the Puppet Master keep everyone in the dark until, in the end tragedy strikes in the tunnel and leaves a tarnished victory. Aaron McCallum Becker's intimate knowledge and skillful rendition of events raise as many questions as they answer.

    A Great Read

    The melancholy style of the first pages juxtaposed against and the action packed progression of the story itself intensified my fascination with Mr. Becker¿s novel. This story accurately follows Diana¿s activities during the last year of her life and suggests that Diana¿s ¿death¿ was not a mere accident. This story is not an account of Diana¿s life. Instead, it is a spell binding, action driven plan for Diana to change her identity. The complex characterizations of Adam and Elizabeth, the individuals who organize and carry out this plan for Diana, make me wonder if they are real people instead of fictional creations in the author¿s imagination. The characterization of Jennifer as self-centered and conniving made me feel as though she received what she deserved. The story offers everything: brutal murder; deceit; compassion; humour; sex; insight into relationships; not to mention a great read.

    Whose Death in the Tunnel?: The Tale of a Princess

    Intrigued. Amazed. The concept is possible. All of these emotions crossed my mindset after reading Whose Death in the Tunnel. The concept is almost beyond the bounds of reality. But, in today¿s world, nothing is impossible. My imagination is taking me beyond the story. Aaron Becker obviously has some insight that has allowed him to embellish this sensational story. I enjoyed the descriptive European flavor and the fresh concept of the plot, fiction based on fact.

    Whose Death in the Tunnel?: The Tale of a Princess

    Aaron Becker¿s ¿novel¿ about Princess Diana¿s scheme to change her identity was a ¿cannot-put-it-down-er¿ for me. Mr. Becker¿s account answers many questions that have lingered in my mind since Diana¿s accident and brings new insight into the circumstances surrounding her supposed death. I found Becker¿s plot fast-moving and compelling. The character development was complex. At first, I felt sorry for Jennifer but, with time, grew to hate her. The complexities of the lives of Adam and Elizabeth and the horrors they endured provided much interest. From personal experience, I could relate to the uncomfortable relationship that developed between Adam and Jennifer, and I could not help but to feel sorry for Adam. Martin is some kind of a guy. At first, I saw him only as a hit man and was surprised to see the gentle side of him evolve. Gerard is a young man I would like to meet. I chuckled to myself time and again as he maneuvered everyone and everything to accomplish his goals. Mr. Becker my hat goes off to you. Your style is fresh and thought provoking. I, too, join the ranks of other readers awaiting your next novel.
