As a man with unprecedented access to the facts and a reporter who
is one of the most feared journalists in Hollywood, investigative
reporter Dylan Howard has cracked open scandals that have
brought down the careers of Mel Gibson, Charlie Sheen, Hulk Hogan,
and Paula Dean and others.
Howard's sense for news saw him rise to become the undisputed most powerful gossip editor in the world-publishing dozens of salacious tabloid magazines each week, including Us Weekly, The National Enquirer, Star, In Touch, Life & Style, RadarOnline.com, and more.
Described by TheNew Yorker magazine's Jeffrey Toobin as "a tabloid prodigy" and AdWeek as "the king of Hollywood scoops," Dylan also brought to light the hate-fueled audiotapes of Oscar-winning actor/director Gibson blasting former girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva; the scandal-plagued death of screen darling Farrah Fawcett; the naming of the mother of Arnold Schwarzenegger's love child; the demise of star-on-the-rise politician Anthony Weiner; and the Tiger Woods sex scandal. He also broke the story of the A-list high-stakes poker scam that was later made into the Oscar-nominated film Molly's Game.
Most recently, Howard made a name for himself with a stunning expose of Sheen that revealed Hollywood's most unapologetic hedonist was HIV positive. It also was a story of extraordinary corruption, violence, lies, intimidation, death threats, and millions of dollars paid out in hush money-a story that he chronicled in a first-person essay for The Hollywood Reporter that AdWeek called "jaw dropping."
In 2011, Howard was named Entertainment Journalist of the Year at the National Entertainment Journalism Awards, where the judges labelled him the "go-to guy for authoritative showbiz news and analysis on cable and over-the air television." Howard lives in New York City.
Colin McLaren was one of Australia's best detectives; he traveled the world on high-end investigations during the 1980s and 1990s. McLaren faced down the underbelly of Australian crime and his work has been the subject of many police genre documentaries and television series. A film of his own life, based on his hugely successful first book, Infiltration: The True Story of the Man Who Cracked the Mafia, was made in 2011. Colin writes constantly and is a regular adviser to TV and cinema productions. His investigation of Diana's death has been on ongoing project and he has spent years weighing up the evidence and turning his investigator's gaze to uncovering the truth.
"Princess Diana's untimely death was one that brought great sadness
to the world. I lived through her life, and the reporting on her
tragic death leaving behind two young sons, which was absolutely
heartbreaking. Reading Diana: Case Solved has been riveting.
There is so much in this book that I never knew before about Diana;
the woman, the mother, and the princess. Each page literally
introduced me to something new that I was hearing and reading for
the first time. I could not put this book down. A must read for
anyone who wants to learn more about the icon Princess Diana was,
and is, to so many around the world."
"I first met Diana at Balmoral Castle, Scotland in August 1980 during my service with Her Majesty, the Queen. In 1987, I became Diana's butler and for the next ten years was considered to be her closest confidante. She famously called me her "rock" and "the only man she ever trusted." I was delighted to participate in this book as I believe that history should be told by those who witnessed it."
