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, imagining a who, a how, and a why of the car crash in a Paris tunnel that saddened the planet. John Lee’s compressed and controlled delivery, coupled with his impressive ear and range as an actor, allows a complete suspension of disbelief as Samuel Carver, who was told by those well-bred people at MI5 that he was to assassinate a terrorist, discovers what he has actually done, a realization that is followed closely by the knowledge that his handlers have no intention of letting him live to tell the tale.
