Lots of details that I didn't know. The escalating of the days leading up to the awful denouement that you know is inevitable. A good book to read.

Martyn Gregory certainly does what he set out to do " to liberate the truth about the last days of Diana, Princess of Wales". He rightly points out that she "failed to survivie her encounter with the Fayed clan", "she became infatuated with Mohamed's feckelss son...and perished as a result". "Her lovers father" has "attempted to rewrite history in his own interests" perhaps not being able to come to terms with his role in it and that of his employees and organisation. Martyn Gregory does touch on the fact that no one in the fateful crash was wearing a seat belt. My question is if they had had - in spite of all the other negative factors described - would any of the occupants of the car survived with minimal injury? Any person who is travelling in a car wears a seat belt and particularly when that car is travelling at speed at night and possibly trying to get away from hourds of really pushy and agressive photographers. If that is the case then it was down to the occupants of the car not to be arrogant and display normal precautions in such circumstances. I wonder again if they had done this whether they may all have survived to learn the lessons from the situation and to take note of them so they would not have put themselves in that postition again. So perhaps it is finally down to the occupants of the car, not withstanding the other undeniably irresponsible factors mentioned in this book, that are really culpable here. Moral of the story is to always wear a seatbelt!

Martyn Gregory seems to have missed the point. His raison d'etre for writing the book is to prove that all conspiracy theories emanated from Mohammed Al Fayed immediately following the car crash. In fact most people began to get edgy following Andrew Morton's book 'Her True Story - In Her Own Words.' That was in the early 90's - 92 I think. This edginess was increased following the infamous Panorama programme. Then, most people began to hold their collective heads in their hands at Diana and Dodi Fayed's public cavorting the week before their deaths. When they tragically died many, nay, millions took a logical mental step forward. It did not take Mohammed Fayed's views to sway anyone's opinions. Although the various enquiries were emphatic that the crash was an accident, for a lot of people there were too many coincidences. I was not taking opinion polls at this time, but was in a very public job, and for the years 92-97 the subject of 'Diana' was at the forefront of people's minds.

I have ready many Diana books, and this one was still of good interest and a worth while read. A lot of interesting facts and unbiased view points. I found this book worth the money and an enjoyable read to plod through. It was by no means a disapointing purchase and I enjoyed it as much as many others on this subject.

If you still subscribe to conspiracy theories after reading this book, you are either wilfully perverse or brainwashed. The conclusion, that there is not a single scrap of evidence to support any of Al Fayed's allegations, is argued in compelling and thorough detail. Furthermore, the author is at pains to point out that, not only does Fayed change his story frequently in order to deflect the blame from his, and Dodi's own failings, he is also the only one of his retinue who actually believes in any wrongdoings. Furthermore, the families of Diana, and Trevor Rees Jones, are in no doubt that this was simply a tragic accident. This book should be seen as the ultimate closure of the case - not, of course, that it will be, given the public's thirst for drama, and the Daily Express's never ending desperation to prop up its failing circulation on the back of the wrongful, and by now throughly tedious, allegations.

Martyn Gregory has clearly spent years investigating this the death of Diana which anyone around in 1997 and old enough will clearly remember. It is a shame that so many people in the last eleven years have sought to besmirch Diana's memory and make capital out of her death, which was tragedy for this country, by making absurd and nonsensical claims about how she died. The verdict of the inquest earlier this year completely vindicated Gregory's surperb investigative journalism into this subject and this latest edition is also especially fascinating as it includes an extra chapter on the Metropolitan Police's costly investigation into the allegations of conspiracy. Anyone with any interest in Diana or investigative reporting will find this book a compelling read and it will lay to rest any doubt you might have about her death. It comprehensively debunks any suggestion of foul play and exposes the conspiracy theorists and deceitful and incompetent.

I found this a very well written and researched book. It deals with the subject in a serious manner and strips away the lies and mis-information that have surounded the tragic death of Diana. It very clearly states where responsibility lies. It looks at the cover up and myths that certain parties wish to maintain for their own personal mis-guided ends. No there was no murder,no conspiracy,no involvement of intelligence agencies. Just the tragic death of a young woman and man,which could have been avoided. That is the tragedy. Buy and read this book and judge for yourself. It is well argued and compelling. A serious effort and well done to the writer and his research team. It serves the cause of Diana and her memory well.

I enjoyed reading the book, at lot of the contents I have read in the press in the early years.
What scares me is people with a lot of money will try and buy the so called truth, and they are always right.

Diana The Last Days is a good read and nothing has been left out, it takes you from about a month before and how she met Dodi. If you like Diana then this is a book for you A+++++

Not written in as much depth as the others on the same topic but still worthwhile. There are facts about their visit to the villa I didn't know.
