Everyone remembers where they were when they found out Princess Diana died. There’s so much more to this book than just the retelling of the author’s run-in with MI6. Yes, it delves into the assassination conspiracy theories surrounding Princess Diana’s death, but there’s so much more to it than that. It really is multi-layered, and masterfully crafted, not to mention edge-of-the-seat sinister. It has all the thrills and spills of an above-average spy thriller and much much more! Knowing it’s actually based on a true story made it all the more gripping. I really couldn’t put it down.

I so vividly remember where I was the evening we heard of Princess Diana’s horrific accident and then death.

Since then I’ve read just about every book about her that has been published and like many I have thought there are details that we the public are missing.

When I came across this book I thought it would just be a rehash of things I had previously read. I was totally wrong.

I think about 90% of the information the author delivered was new to me. The story was riveting and unfortunately quite plausible. There have been way too many strange things surrounding Diana’s death and unfortunately for the Royal Family, they have done nothing to dispel the rumors and the feeling that the public strongly has that Princess Diana was indeed murdered.

The information in this book strongly backs the point that foul play was involved.

Excellent read.

As with most people I, too, feel that Princess Diana's death was more than just an accident. It was interesting to read about many of the details of the case. However, it's hard to believe this was written by an established author. There were too many reiterations of info that was presented earlier in the book to the point it seems the author just wanted to add to the book's overall length. This, of course, made it a very slow and tedious read. Also, when are writers going to learn the difference between subjective case and objective case? I'm referring to the misuse of the pronoun 'I' being used when the objective 'me' should have been used.

Princess Di’s death is one of those moments in history, where everyone remembers where they were when they found out. I was at a country music concert… and I was 10. The whole thing fascinated everyone, and spawned what might very well be the most conspiracy theories for any 1 single event, or at least up there on the list.

This book centers around a journalist that was tipped off about a “high profile assassination” by a former Green Beret. That assassination was Princess Diana’s “accidental” death. This book lays out the story that we were told, and all of the inconsistencies in that story, and everything else that has been proven, or speculated upon.

This was a really fascinating read. As someone that is still fascinated by this story (as I’m sure everyone is, to some extent), it really felt like there was a hint of realism, even if the everything wasn’t 100% true. This story is said to be “based on true events”, but it’s listed under fiction, so maybe it is based on true events the same way that Law & Order is, as well. But judging from the fact that the author has 2 other books devoted to Princess Diana, it might be a safe bet to say that he knows what he’s talking about. I recommend checking this out!

I ordered this book in a rush, and once I found out it was about the Princess Diana conspiracy, I was not at all eager to read it. I thought "been there, no conspiracy, get over it." Boy, was I wrong. True book is written less as a documentary styled analysis, and more like a crime novel. It raises some very interesting facts, and caused me to reconsider my thoughts on the matter. If Jon King is right, I bought the cover up hook, line and sinker. I'll think about this for a long time and will definitely see the movie.

We’ve all read the official account of how Princess Diana died, and some of us have even treated ourselves to a raft of alternative accounts too, some plausible, others perhaps not so. But this book is unique, the story it tells compelling and enlightening, and I find myself likening the experience of the author to that of other noble whistleblowers (Ed Snowden comes to mind) who have risked their necks to reveal what our governments would rather we didn’t know about.

What happened to Jon King beggars belief, and goes to show just how far our "out of control" intelligence agencies are prepared to go in order to achieve their goals. For this reason alone everyone should read this book. Thumbs up!

Americans are less aware of it than are the British, but in 2008 a British jury concluded that Princess Diana and Dodi Fayed were “unlawfully killed,” a charge just shy of “murdered.”

Jon King’s book, THE CUT-OUT, gives chapter and verse with only some names and details changed to protect the guilty and the author. Having investigated the affair painstakingly, King seems to know "where the bodies are buried."

In espionage jargon, a “cut-out” is an unwitting individual used to pass messages or material. The author finds, eventually, that he himself was a dupe for a high-ranking officer of Britain’s MI6, their CIA. In investigating Princess Di’s death, King is fed clues to lead him in certain directions desired by MI6. When he breaks free from his leash, his investigation is hampered and his resulting book is eventually embargoed. Despite this, he succeeds in getting an official investigation of the killing of Princess Di, who would have likely survived this crash of her sabotaged Mercedes limousine if her seat belt had not also been deliberately damaged.

King’s own investigation revealed that, for reasons of church and state, government officials decided that either Camilla Parker-Bowles or Princess Diana had to die, by “accident,” before the impending marriage of Prince Charles and Camilla. An unsuccessful attempt on Camilla’s life made the killing of Princess Di be deemed necessary.

King’s book is fascinating, well worth reading by those who like riveting stories and those who want to know what goes on behind the scenes when government agents act without ethics. Power does, indeed, tend to corrupt.
