"It's particularly hard to create an effective thriller surrounding an event as thoroughly examined as the death, in August 1997, of the most famous and photogenic woman in the world. Tom Cain has done it though, with conviction and power.... John Lee's compressed and controlled delivery, coupled with his impressive ear and range as an actor, allows a complete suspension of disbelief." (AudioFile)

Wait? An elite killer one step ahead of everyone until the end where he is saved by the hard-shelled tender-hearted lady of the streets. How is that nobody else has ever written this story? Nobody that is except everyone. There are some entertaining elements but the same predictable story. Good for soft slow and safe listen with gratuitous sexual intrusions. The narration however was excellent with impressive use of diverse accents.
I guess good for guys who like bravado action and descriptions of women's anatomy to make a thriller interesting. Not very complex or sophistocated and we're supposed to buy the premise that Princess Di was murdered by an international conspiracy. Give me a break!
