The Little White Car, is a novel by British author Dan Rhodes, published under the pen name Danuta de Rhodes in 2004 by Canongate and has been translated into 12 languages.[1] The book's premise, based on real-world evidence, is that the car carrying Diana, Princess of Wales was in collision with a white Fiat Uno just before it crashed on 31 August 1997.

Plot introduction[edit]

The book is set in Paris where Veronique, after having just split up with her boyfriend, is driving home in her 'little white car' when whilst passing through a tunnel in central Paris is approached at high speed from behind by a large car. She is determined not to let it pass; but it collides with the back of her car and crashes. On seeing the news next morning Veronique realises "Oh shit, I killed the princess". The remainder of the book tells of Veronique's life and loves before the fateful day, and the efforts to conceal her involvement afterwards.
