Diana the Abduction: Mystery Solved is a book under the non-fiction category written by Rania Alammar.

A year after the divorce of Prince Charles and Princess Diana, the princess was killed in a car accident in France in August 31, 1997. The princess, her boyfriend Imad Al Fayed known as Dodi, Dodi’s bodyguard Trevor Rees-Jones and the driver and head of security of the Ritz Hotel Henri Paul perished when the Mercedes they were in crashed in the thirteenth pillar of the Pont d’Alma tunnel at 00:23, while being chased by paparazzi. While Henri and Dodi died right away, the princess was taken to the La Pitié Salpêtrière Hospital and died at 4:00 from internal bleeding caused by rupture in pulmonary vein.

There were two main assumptions concerning the event. First, the accident was caused by the recklessness and alcohol intoxication of the driver. Second, the event was a deliberate murder instigated by the Royal Family against Princess Diana who was said to be pregnant by Dodi Al-Fayed at the time of the accident. In this book, the author offered a third conclusion and that is the princess did not die that night but was rather kidnapped and was replaced by the body of a different woman.

The author’s shocking assumption is supported by evidence gathered through several years of research from various investigative books. Among her most important sources are: Cover Up of a Royal Murder: Hundreds of Errors in the Paget Report and How They Murdered Princess Diana, both by John Morgan, Princess Diana: The Evidence by Jon King and John Beveridge and Diana: Death of a Goddess by David Cohen.

The author’s inference was based on multiple discrepancies in recorded information and testimonies, fabricated and otherwise, of involved individuals. Among the most interesting facts pointed out in this book were the following: failure of the cameras to capture a picture of the accident, two different entries of Princess Diana’s time of arrival at the hospital, two different documents of entry for the princess with the same file number, different and inconsistent descriptions of the princess after the accident like terrible injuries and not at all disfigured which led to the author’s assumption that there was another body besides that of Princess Diana.

The book is, first and foremost, interesting and easily catches the attention of the reader as early as the first five pages. The assumptions brought forward, outrageous as they are, are supported by the evidence presented making the author’s arguments very convincing. The fluidity of the writing makes the book easy to read and understand. All the issues raised are thoroughly addressed and the claims substantiated. The event is chronologically narrated giving the reader the feeling of being walked through from the scene of the accident, at the hospital and even in London. The statements are well referenced with sources appropriately cited.

I, therefore, give this book the rate of 4 out of 4 stars. It is interesting, concise and well written. I recommend it, first to the fans of the beloved princess, then to readers who love crime and conspiracy stories.

A review from the writer and blogger Sarah Hapgood:

I know hardened sceptics may be rolling their eyes at this point.  “Oh pah-lease! Another book about Princess Diana’s death?  She died because she wasn’t wearing a seat-belt, get over it!”   Ah, but it’s a mystery which still endures.

I’ve read several books about Diana’s untimely death over the years, and to be honest, I didn’t think I’d be tempted to try another one unless someone actually came up with some hard compelling evidence as to what happened that fateful August night in 1997, instead of just wild speculating, and bending facts to fit whichever is their pet theory.  This one enticed me because the author argues that Diana didn’t die at all, that she was in fact abducted.

Hardened sceptics will be rolling their eyes again.  “Don’t we always get this when a famous person dies in their prime?  You’ll be seeing Elvis down Tesco’s next”.  Indeed.  And yes, it’s true that people do have a problem accepting that tragedies can happen to  famous people in the prime of life, as much as they can happen to anybody else.  God knows how many times Elvis has been spotted.   I once saw a book by a man who claimed he had given a lift to a 60-something Marilyn Monroe back in the 1980s.  And on the Your True Tales website I read a short piece by someone who swore they had once  seen a 70-year-old John F Kennedy walking past the shop where he worked.

When I first visited the Pont Alma in Paris in 1999, someone had put up a poster there claiming that Diana had faked her own death to live a life of anonymity.  I don’t believe that for one minute.  You can argue abduction is equally far-fetched, but yet, I’ve read sincere comments over the years – both in books and Online – from people who believe that may have been what happened.

This book was better than I expected, in that it wasn’t a swivel-eyed, hysterical rant, as some conspiracy books can often be.  The author has done some solid research, and the medical details are gone into in tremendous detail, to the extent that I personally found parts of it heavy-going.  That’s mainly because there’s a limit to how much I can read about embalming and autopsies without mentally zoning out.

I must add that the author also mentions, in relation to royal mysteries,  the weird case of the 10 missing Canadian aboriginal children from October 1964.  I’ve been intrigued by that one for quite some time now, and yet can find very little information on it, so I’m always fascinated when anybody else mentions it.

Frustratingly, the book offers no ideas as to what may have happened to Diana if she did indeed survive that night.  Is she still alive?  Where did they take her?   I hope the author pursues this subject, as there’s certainly scope for a follow-up volume.

As an Amazon reviewer put it, this book is “flawed, but perhaps important”.  It is certainly thought-provoking.  I found myself both agreeing and disagreeing with her.  I agree that Dodi was just a summer diversion for Diana, and not the great love affair some believe it was (I think she was still on the rebound from Dr Khan).  The author paints Al Fayed as a complete villain.  I’m honestly not sure about that.  I found him to be genuinely moving in the controversial film Unlawful Killing (although it must be pointed out that he bankrolled it).   Don’t message me.  I don’t know the man, I have no idea what he’s like.

If hardened sceptics are still rolling their eyes, well I can’t offer you much reassurance.  There are still too many mysteries, conundrums, and unanswered questions about the Princess’s death for conspiracists to shut up about it any time soon.  This one will continue to run and run.

I am very glad of this book and I even was motivated to send few copies to some of my friends myself. It is one of the unusual books that you think at first it is another one about the case but I was astonished how this writer seems to be honest in her evaluation of the info she read herself in the books she researched. It is a research rathar than a story. There is some repetitiveness but kind of short which is a good thing but powerful. I believe in her sources because John Morgan for example has dedicated his life to study the case. She reffers to Chris Everard whom I know is an excellent researcher himself and Jon King and some others. The book also quote from some online websites which is not a crime by the way for it is an important tool and it is about the info and its accuracy. After reading it I really consider her argument is more than legitimate. A lot of the unanswered questions are answered here. Muhammed Alfayed is involved according to this research which is an idea a lot of the other writers refuse to even touch. I had my suspicions about him myself and now this book made me feel I was really right about him. If you are an intellectual reader this is a must read but if you are not it is not for you. Diana did not die that night. She was dear to us all and we all felt there was always something wrong in the official story of her death. The other writers and reserchers though dedicated themselves to the truth but also unfortunatly did not answer some urgent questions like this one.

This is the first book that explains what happened to Princess Diana in a through rational fashion. Every report, we have ever read was conflicting and just didn’t add up. This one does. It is very well written and I read it in one sitting. Prince Charles and The Queen are not presented in a good light. They have a lot to answer for if this is true. And I believe it to be true. A must read for all Princess Diana fans.

When I was told about this book I thought it is going to be just another one that repeats the events of what happened to Princess Diana. But I was bewildered. It really made me rethink the case. I am speechless. What if this writer got it really right that Diana was actually abducted. I felt in some points it can be explained as a murder but the book took me to deeper areas or better to say to new answers where no one ever never asked about before. at least to my knowledge. She really explains her conclusion in the best way she can basing her evidence on what other investigative writers explored. I think this is the book that might start to solve the case in some way.

I was intrigued to read this, having read several books which question the official version of the unforgettable, tragic death of Diana, Princess of Wales, along with Dodi al Fayed and Henri Paul.
I have become, and remain, convinced that the crash was the result of a professionally orchestrated ‘plausible denial’ operation.
Rania Alammar is clearly an intelligent journalist, whose conclusion, after having studied a number of books whose authors have investigated the incident, is one she genuinely believes in.
Even for those of us who accept that the ‘accident’ was anything but, followed by an (at least) equally elaborate cover-up there remain many odd inconsistencies, not all of which can be explained by the inevitable confusion following sudden, unexpected, dramatic events.
It’s not unreasonable to set out a case for a possibility that the Princess did not actually die that night, which I had not seriously considered before reading this book.
To her credit its author does not pretend to know what happened to the Princess after September 1st 1997, if she was indeed still alive then, her sedated but living body having been swapped with the body of another, unknown, deceased woman.
But it would have been reassuring to know, when reading, that Ms. Alammar had undertaken some research of her own, rather than basing her conclusion entirely on her studies of other authors published research.
I suspect that English is not her first language, and I’m sorry to say that a few of her sentences make little sense grammatically. More importantly the book is repetitive and not easy to read. It is also shorter than the average book, but to be honest mercifully so.
However I finished it, and, if you are a student of the mystery that she writes about, I recommend that you do too.
Ms Alammar’s assertion that the authorities want/ed us to conclude that the Princess was murdered, rather than that she lost her life in a tragic accident, caused by a speeding drunk driver being pursued by paparazzi, is so blatantly off the mark that I simply cannot understand how she could have concluded that.
Yet clearly she has given a lot of thought to what she writes about, she highlights some very puzzling aspects of what is known about it, and arrives at an original conclusion, which I’m unconvinced by but which merits some serious consideration.
If she is right, her book provides more questions than answers. Maybe she can track down and interview some people who could provide some answers, and write another book, with a more experienced writer to co-author it.

Full of lots of facts and information- really gets you thinking. But personally I felt there was too much of the same information repeated so I found myself skipping parts as it became monotonous- just my opinion.

I am actually not surprised that this has been self-published. No self-respecting editor and/or publisher would have allowed this tome to be made public without serious revisions. The author claims Princess Diana was not killed but abducted — for reasons still obscure to me – and one of the masterminds was Muhammad Al-Fayed, whose son Dodi was killed alongside Diana.
What right does this author have to judge how Mr Al-Fayed took the news of his son’s passing? She was 11 years old and living in another country. Like many people I was in the UK and can tell you the man was devastated. He appeared at his store – Harrods – in shock and dismay, openly weeping. He did not act at all calm and carefree as she suggests. Where does she get this anyway?
Do Diana’s sons need to read this tripe? Even they come under her scrutiny when she claims they laughed on the day they mother died.
Numerous obscure sources and references to articles she’s read online. The author also makes mention of the British royal family covering up numerous family members who suffered mental illness and were confined to private sanatoriums. None of this is new, since documentaries produced over the years also make mention of the Bowes-Lyon sisters.
I am shocked that none of the people mentioned have filed lawsuits because many of the claims in this book are at the very least libelous. I’d give it one star except that I think the author has a cute imagination that would be beautiful for future works of fiction.
(this one is angry .. I promised to put the good the bad but not the ugly though (:  well I must have a great imagination to have the ability to see beyond the lies and between the lines)

thought provoking, and meticulous. I hope to see more from this author, about Diana. why it was said someone spotted Poindexter on the bridge that nite, how Angola has a Bush oil co that was fined, how Reese no longer lives on a modest family in England but actually runs oil business and living in Texas now?
5.0 out of 5 stars I believe every word..a must read… how low can these people go?? Read this book and see for yourself. Shocking!!!, August 31, 2016

Published by: Rania Alammar

Rania Alammar is a Saudi ex-journalist, living in Berlin since she fled her country Saudi Arabia due to the unbearable governmental oppressiveness which inflicted her own way of life but more on her people who are against the methods of the ruling of Al Saud royal family. She never dreamed she would become an author. Not about Diana anyway but her life took her to that direction and she never resisted. During the first months of 2013, Rania took the decision to leave the country to work with the opposition groups to the Saudi regime. An extended trip across many countries in the Middle East and Europe started. But there was always something in her mind and heart that pointed to her to research Princess Diana's case what caused her to write this book. Rania Alammar has released a new book on the case of Diana Princess of Wales under the title "Diana The Abduction Mystery Solved". The book is considered to be a thorough study of different sources and several investigative books that revives another possibility of what happened to Diana Princess of Wales in 1997. It’s a new reading between the lines that opposes the published result. In the book, Alammar has not only denounced the British courts' judgement in 2008 which ruled that what happened was unlawful killing, but furthermore she disagreed with all the investigative writers who believed in the murder theory. Her search for answers to many previously unanswered questions lead her to the conclusion that, contrary to the general belief that Diana died of her injuries, she was in fact, abducted after the repatriation of her coffin to London on 31st August 1997. And as a result of this study, which took more than six years of the author's life, Alammar concluded that in fact the investigations’ masking different medical evidence was not in order to hide a pregnancy as rumored, but to omit the existence of what might have raised suspicion in the nature of the body itself. The author adds a very eerie point in her book where she wrote that what occurred actually reflects the presence of another woman’s corpse that was embalmed in France and then autopsied in London on August 31. This explanation to the famous case, which had an enormous impact on the modern history, claimed by the Saudi author is unprecedented and it might be the answer to why Princess Diana's case has always been an unsolved mystery.
