Diana follow-up

BRISBANE, Australia—The latest, and possibly last, in a series of books about the death of Princess Diana of Britain is available at and other booksellers. It's by former Worldwide Church of God member John Morgan of Brisbane, Australia. Mr. Morgan reports what he calls the "unlawful killing of Diana" and a high-level cover-up. The book is Diana Inquest: Corruption at Scotland Yard.

Mr. Morgan had hoped to write one more book after this one but, because of deteriorating health (he has multiple-system atrophy) he expects this could be his last volume on the Paris, France, car crash that killed Diana and her boyfriend, Dodi Fayed, in 1997.

Diana Inquest is available at for $26, or $9 for the Kindle edition. Write Mr. Morgan at
