Confined to a hospital bed, Scotland Yard's Inspector Alan Grant is bored. To divert his attention from his pain, a friend brings him pictures of faces. He becomes engrossed with the portrait of Richard III. How is it possible that such a sensitive-appearing soul could have been portrayed as the odious villain, the Wicked Uncle of history, responsible for the murder of his young nephews, heirs to the British throne, in order to secure the line of succession for himself? Grant reconsiders 500-year-old evidence pertaining to one of the most intriguing mysteries of all time: Who really killed the two princes in the Tower of London?

Tey's answer to this question has provoked controversy and caused this title to be ranked as the 4th Best Mystery of all time by the Mystery Writers of America! Download and start listening now!

    " An enjoyable read. I'd like to read more of the author's books. "

    " Very enlightening information about Richard III - although a bit confusing for someone who is not well versed in British History. A very clever way to approach history and food for thought about how history is written and interpreted. "

    " I didn't get very far into it before the book was due at the library. So, like a good little patron, I returned it. I won't be checking it out again to finish it (it was on hold so I couldn't renew it). It wasn't really grabbing me anyway. I like some historical fiction, and I love the Princes in the Tower/Richard III intrigue, but this just wasn't the book for me. "

    " After taking a class this summer at Oxford about RichardIII I listened to an audiobook version narrated by Derek Jacobi. It was FANTASTIC. Such a great book but I also came away more frustrated at the unfair treatment even today of Richard! "
