I've had several of Mr. Davies books and found each to contain weak writing, wild speculation and possibly even a hatred/envy for the Princess. This book is no different, he spends lots of time rambling on about her good works and skills and then will rip into the Princess for a variety of things.
I find the title "Diana, Secrets & Lies" to be interesting becasue Davies seems to imply that most of the secrets and lies in the story were Diana's although he often rambles off about some other members of the royal family.
One of the most outrageous things in the book is Davies virtual, near continuous insistence that Prince Harry is James Hewitt's son. He even has the nerve to quote Hewitt denying this 'fact', something I personally don't believe that lowlife would do, he'd want the attention.
The first two reviewers liked the Diana murder conspiracy segment, it is interesting but not very well developed, I'd like more on that one.
Ingrid Seward for all her faults is a much better writer, getting her books instead might prove to be the better investment.

When I read the first few pages of this book, I thought it would be fair and balanced with an honest look at the couple and perhaps shedding some light on conspiracy theories involving Diana's death. I was wrong. I was incredulous at some of the ideas presented by the writer. The worst was the author's insistence that Diana was to blame for the marital disaster when she allegedly cheated on Charles in 1983 (he has very very flimsy "evidence" for this) and didn't know if Harry was sired by Charles or Hewitt!! First of all, despite all the insistence by the author on a "resemblance," I see none. Harry looks like a Windsor with the Spencer red hair, and he is Charles' son. Case closed. Charles and Diana in their respective biographies (via Dimbleby and Morton) maintain that Harry was very much a planned child. Hewitt denies being intimate with Diana before 1986. He would have nothing to lose if he said he was intimate before--indeed he would probably welcome the publicity of possibly siring Harry. And wouldn't even Davies look at pictures of Harry and Hewitt and see no resemblance between them? This sort of hearsay gossip hurts Diana's reputation and certainly would be painful to Harry (Is Davies trying to help Charles' cause in marrying Camilla and propagating this spin against his late ex-wife?) I was equally astonished that Davies insists that Camilla and Charles were just friends and became lovers only after Diana cheated with Hewitt in 1983! Give me a break! Camilla and Charles' affair was an open secret as far back as the early 1970s and courtiers knew that Charles was intimate with her over the years. This was no innocent "friendship" and Diana knew it.Read more ›

As a fan of the Princess of Wales, I picked up this book because the cover claims to "tell what others are afraid to." Expecting little more than a publisher trying to hawk their wares, I have to admit I was surprised at the information and new sources that author Nicholas Davies brought to Secrets & Lies. The book not only claims that the Princess was murdered, but actually explains, in detail, the conspracy that led to the fatal and "accidental" crash in August of 1997. I found myself glued to this story, and now urge that a more in depth review of Diana's death be conducted by an independent investigator. I'm absolutely amazed this book hasn't gotten more press, as it makes the best arguement to date that Diana was murdered.

Finally, a writer with the courage to take on the House of Windsor and the English secret service! This writer makes what amounts to the most difinitive case yet that Diana's death was orchestrated by those that wanted her out of the picture. I have followed Diana's life and death and read many of the biographies written, but this was the best from an insider's perspective, with facts and details I have read nowhere else. A fascinating read with serious consequences for those that have tried to keep one of the biggest murders ever under wraps!

I too believe that Nicholas Davies is a little toad who hated the Princess. His book was total crap and it is so obvious he is writing it to get money for himself. Don't waste your money!

Well if I'm not greatly mistaken this is published by the same people who published National Inquirer, The Glove and The Star. Enough Said. It's just rumours put into a book.
I mean whatever gossip that's been on the royals that's been out there for the pass 30 or 40 years is thrown in this book.
It's a great titles at least the LIES part.
I love the rumour which has been going around since it was disclose Diana had the misfortune to chose James "the cad" Hewitt as a lover that he's the father of Prince Harry. Well as been stated many times they didn't meet or start their affair until 1986 with Harry being born 1984 but why let that stop you Nicholas Davis? What has been know of Hewitt is since the affair ended he has done whatever he could to make money of this affair giving interviews, writing books, trying to sell her love letters to him proves he's totally without character so if there was even a remote possiblity he could be Harry's father don't you think he would milk it for what it's worth??? Plus if the Royal Family wanted to murdered an annoying person who better then Hewitt especially should there be an ounce of truth to him being Harry's father. As someone else stated red hair is a family trait just look at the present Earl Spencer plus Lady Sarah and Lady Jane truth is Diana was the only one without red hair it's fairly obvious that a child of her would have red hair.
I have read about Princess Diana since she got engaged to Prince Charles in Feb. 24'81 so I feel I'm pretty knowledgeable but this book it's from the gutter. I bet this wasn't published in the U.K. it's too libel???? Total total trash save your money.
PS Wish I could get it no stars it's that horrible.
